I think the zero survivability whout abusing shield drones hurts battlesuits more than bs4. you can get them to bs2 for a few turns with stratagems and they still suck because they die the second anything with ap looks at them and then you're out 200+ points and a third of your list's firepower.

Doesnt happen because the Guard is always on a warzone and when it isnt they are tired and depleted BUT if a Governor is seen as lacking or seceding from the Imperium the Guard will retake the planet and its leadership/nobility will be replaced by the Imperial Guard's High Command.

I've got some vague fluff in mind about them being plasma fetishists that draw from a hive world and favour infantry rapidly advancing through cover over vehicles, hence the successor tactics.
3 Eradicators seem like the obvious pick but man I cannot see them not getting nerfed into the ground soon. 3 Plasma Inceptors could fit if I dropped a Hellblaster. 3 Aggressors with Flamestorm gauntlets would also work and give me something that can counterpunch a bit, and if they get focused early that leaves my Hellblasters unscathed at least.
Was also leaning towards IH as the founding chapter for a couple of strats as well as the fact that I'd be using lots of bionic parts to represent plasma accidents anyway.

No he wouldn't. IG commanders lead by fear, not charisma and actual leadership. Like an IG commander would never shake the hands of lower ranked guardsman or joke with them.

No they are not, a Crusade is composed of Army groups and a normal Imperial Army is composed of several Regiments forming battlegroups each led by a General which in turn are overseen and led by a Lord General.

The Regiment system makes traitor elements easier to subdue and compartmentalize and hard for them to get any sort of autonomy.

Dune is just Space Jihadist Imperium to 40k's Space Crusaders (be hilarious if they ever met). I will say that Dune is on a completely different level than 40k though. The reason why combat is so ceremonial and sword focused is not just because of personal shields that can block nearly anything except for slow moving blades, but because their actual crazy shit is too destructive. They have handguns that can destroy planets, for instance. Their lasguns, on maximum setting, can nuke cities. So a Dune land crawler or lasgun is not the same thing as a 40k land crawler or lasgun.

Dune came out in the 60s. All the other major space operas like Star Wars and 40k riffed off of it.

while yes, remember 40k is a product of Britain undeclass mocking their elites. They loved the idea of the man above them being an inbred idiotic moron. The idea of Zhukov, a man of people could send them into the maws of dead is abhorent to them. Think about it this way, Cromwel won the civil war and after his death they put in charge his son. When this son turned out to be weak they call back for the king son. The same men who executed their king applauded when his son was back on the throne. At the same time during WW1 English officers had the biggest causalties. Simple becuse this blueblooded morons wanted to always lead their man agaisnt the machine gun nest.

Officially, no.

depends, there's some real sadboy hours to be had amongst many of the blood angels beleive it or not.
They're watching their brotherhood fall deeper and deeper into madness and loss, every time they are called together chapters of the blood have dissapeared.

Or possibly renegade (but loyalist) astartes Soul Drinkers come to mind here, being loyalists to the Emperor and the Imperium and humanity but not to the high lords.

easily Aeldari actually could also feel a similar vibe the long death of their race sustained only by desperately hanging onto the threads of fate and literally manipulating the future to their own ends, they have managed toooo... barely survive, for 10,000 years they have had literally the power of gods magic and anime on their side and barely gotten through, often failing miserably and being the most doomed of doomed races.

Idk why this sad subject matter in the lyrics has such contrasting background beats but you could do Emperors Children actually, that background being more their thing, then pair it with the few brief moments of horrible clarity to remind those of them, who still hold on to what they once were; what they have since become.

I think the best example of what separates Guilliman from the likes of horus and some of the rest is when he finds out the emperor doesn't love him.

Guilliman finds out the very same truth that broke horus, that to the emperor he is nothing but a tool to be used and discarded if need be.

Yeah it's kinda weird, running a mainly destroyer cult army almost feels like you're playing a different army. Honestly command protocols are jank, they should effect the entire army like doctrines and canticles, not be character auras, you're already getting taxed enough by being forced to take a noble warlord (as an aside to this, why the fuck is the royal warden not considered a noble? Every other HQ is either a cryptek or destroyer if not a noble, the warden just sits on his own as nothing). Honestly the best fix I could see is having them be standard to effect the whole army, then the secondary being a character aura.
