You're closer to the truth than them.
And to my knowledge, only Imperial humans are given the title of Warmaster. I've never heard of an Adeptus Astartes or, say, Mechancius member receiving the title.
Yeah, Warmasters have fallen since the heyday of the Great Crusade. They're no longer the supreme military master of the entire Imperium's military...just temporary masters of a tiny sliver of the Imperium's armed forces. This might still account to many billions of soldiers.
Also keep in mind that, unlike Horus, modern Warmasters do not have direct control of the Adeptus Astartes. A Warmaster technically has no rights to order a fresh Adeptus Astartes Initiate to do anything.
