So, can someone explain warp travel to me during the time of the Heresy?

I get that in 40k, the Emperor sets on the Throne, guiding the Astronomican while a bunch of psykers power it.

Well, how did that work during the Heresy? How was everyone getting around when the Emperor was in space with the Crusade? What about when he went back to the palace?

In short, how does the operation of the beacon differ between 40k and the Heresy, because there seems to be something fundamentally different about its operation between the two time periods.

According, at least, to The Outcast Dead, in the HH, the Astronomicon appears to be called the "hollow mountain," a place where the weaker-minded psykers enter but never leave. I assume that it's sufficiently self-sustainable that it can be left to run, perhaps with only Malcador making a few tweaks now and then.

I'd imagine the Emperor in his prime was capable of many things. Powering the Astronomican on the go wouldn't of been to hard I think.

Can someone please explain the army organization of the Iron Warriors pre- and during the Horus Heresy? For if you read "The Crimson Fist", Berossus for instance is Captain of the 2nd Grand (I assume but it didn't say) Company.

In Angel Exterminatus, he is a Warsmith of the 2nd Grand Battalion. Are there any differences between a Warsmith and Captain and what's the difference between a Grand Company and a Grand Battalion?

A warsmith is the IW version of tech marine, going by some novels they are treated equal to or greater than Captains.
I would assume that Grand Battalion is a different name for Grand Company.

Basically all the cruisers and battleships chaos uses in battlefleet Gothic as they are said to be old traitor ships that escaped into the warp.
