The Imperium is also, arguably, more advanced than the Tau. While Tau tech is shiny and clean and very 'modern' looking, they don't outperform the Imperium in many areas, and those in which they do are due to scale.

Yes it was a simulation.

You'll notice 'dead' marines getting back up after the fighting, 'casualties' moaning about how it's their turn to be the dead ones and they're using altered bolters. The other legions were costumed Ultramarines.

As COTE said it was a field testing of the Codex Astartes, making sure his legion could handle other legions in the field. Being a time of confusion and shifting loyalties he tested it against loyalist legions aswell, it being best to be prepared.

In terms of the Imperial Hierarchy and the Inquisition then Chaos is probably perceived as the greatest threat. It's the enemy within as well as without.

It was Chaos which turned Horus, who turns Astartes, that causes secret cults to ferment and planets to rebel, Chaos which posses psykers and corrupts the mind and soul. Chaos is the cancerous underbelly gnawing at the Imperium. The High Lords of Terra live in fear of Abaddon finally reuniting all the Legions and renegades and overwhelming Cadia.

In local areas there may be greater, or more pressing threats but for the leaders of the Imperium and the empire in general it's Chaos.

@Vaz, why would Maccrage hold the Dark Eldar to be a sever threat?

my guess is that it'll be sometime next year..the siege of terra should get a huge book of short stories that tie in into the final book that is basically just the emperor's fall and interrment after he kicks horus off existence..

In the new rulebook, there's a section on exterminatus (don't have it to hand so I can't provide a page reference). It describes each Imperial faction as having their own method e.g. Cyclonic torpedos, mass bombardment etc.
Howeverm it describes Astartes exterminatus as being delivered to the surface by a team of Space Marines. I've never heard of such an event occurring, while the closest I can think of are the Deathwatch's seek and destroy missions against Hive Fleets. Does anyone know of an instance where this form of exterminatus was used?

Pg 154 and it talks about an "Exterminatus Device" being set on the surface.

I'd put a significant amount of money on the series finishing much later than next year.
