I hate chapters, It really just destroyed the Imperiums success. Though lol you could argue it did contribute to its demise. However due to the original legions being leaderless/ without primarchs. i think it was better to put them in chapters, due to the fact that I don't think chapter masters should be held responsible for a force as large as 100,000.
I personally don't think each chapter has only 1000 marines. If you think about it its pretty few due to the fact you retinues, transport drivers, pilots, and so many other positions to be filled as marines that it greatly reduces that number. Besides how do you keep track of fallen marines during long wars and crusades? "Battle Report: two dead marines, make to scouts into marines"? How about lost contact or lost companies? And how are the chapters enforced?
In my opinion they should all give the "Dorn Middle Finger" and begin the process of "crusades." That way if anyone asks they can just be like " I dont give a #### we are all in business we don't have time to count 1000 marines."
