Another difference between then and now is how Space Marines are used.

Back in the day, they'd assault head on and build a bridge of dead if need be to smash the enemy. Even the big match up on Istavaan V was a slug match of epic proportions.

A modern chapter simply can't afford to sustain such losses. They have to be rather more pragmatic.
