|Black Steel Feathers||This is REALLY cool, and well-written. :D And plausable, which is the most important thing. Kudos!|

I don't have anything against a time-skip, but it would be interesting to see more in M31 as well. So I hope that if there is a time skip, you'll return to the Heresy at some point.
Either way, I really like this.

You're doing an excellent job so many kudos to you! A few inferences from what's written:
-The Emperor still comes out to talk/play once in a while
-Humanity owns, or at least shares, the Webway
-Horus Lupercal is somehow trapped on Terra or too busy being a bureaucrat
A few concepts you absolutely kick ass on:
-Remaining Primarchs form a Council and rule without the bloody political infighting of the Council of Terra
-Remaining Primarchs don't go completely mental and run off doing stupid things that get all of them killed
-Mars doesn't become a blithering idiot simply because the Emperor isn't around to hold their hand
-While Legions may be a 'threat', they aren't broken up and the threat continues to be turned on everyone else.
I think on the first page you have a quote about 'when Eldar speak it is the beginning of Wisdom'. That suggests perhaps all the Eldar aren't pricks and perhaps a few of the smarter Primarchs, like Alpharius and Magnus, might have started a productive dialogue.
Great Fanfluff! I think your biggest flaw is why humanity has to concern itself with any real threat by the 41st Millennium? Everything seems to be well in hand.

Interlude Three: Summaries
The Belisarian Crusade
Oh, how glorious was the Belisarian Crusade. Conducted in M40 on the very orders of the Master of Mankind, under the command of Legion Master Kaesoron, he who fought on the same ground as the Emperor and Primarch Fulgrim all those millennia ago, and Lord Militant Alyxius Belisaria. Known as Kaesoron the Deathless for still being in his prime when lesser Marines would long have fallen or withered into senescence, Kaesoron deployed the full force of Legio III, about 500,000 battle-ready Astartes and the greatest of the Legions, to the Crusade, which was to strike a great blow against traitorous Ultramar, now long devolved into a collection of Astartes fiefdoms under the loose command of Macragge. The Ultramar Wars might have petered out in M34, but great was the vengeance-lust against the hosts of Ultramar, the Astartes' recruitments having given them a million Marines in number. And great was the slaughter!
Great mountains of the outcast dead of Ultramar swiftly formed on a thousand worlds. At Eskrador the Alpha Legion destroyed an Ultramarines forces five times their number, at Talassar the Ultramarines forces were utterly wiped out. On the dead fortress-world of Prandium a hundred thousand Ultramarines were slain. At the last battle was begun on Macragge. Great was the fighting, Magnus and Perturabo and Mortarion fought like living gods, but the Fortress of Hera had been designed to hold off all attackers. But at the last the siege was so bloody that Guilliman himself, the wretched traitor, came forth. That was when all Perturabo's siege-engines, including several Titans gifted by the Mechanicum, fired all at once at the great fortress and its defenders, at the critical moment that Alpha Legion saboteurs disrupted the void shields. Explosions and plasma-blasts ripped through the Fortress of Hera, tearing it apart, razing it and killing the majority of the Ultramarines, seven hundred thousand, all in one glorious and purifying explosion.
The Ultramarines, their great stocks of gene-seed destroyed as well, were greatly weakened. But the prospect of their fleet arriving, with enough firepower to drive off even the Imperial Navy, forced a retreat. The defeat of Ultramar was not completed, but Macragge's grip on its subject worlds was greatly weakened. The retreating fleets tore a swathe of devastation through the Ultramarines' worlds on their way back to Imperial territory, Guilliman for his part swore undying vengeance upon the great Imperium of Man.
The Purge of Biel-Tan
In M37, the Eldar made a desperate assassination attempt upon the Emperor of Man. It failed disastrously, and it was swiftly discovered that these Eldar were of the Biel-Tan Craftworld, seeking to create a new Eldar Empire in blood and fire. It was judged that no less than a complete purge of the Craftworld was necessary, to deter future attempts. The ten thousand blades of the Adeptus Custodes moved swiftly through the webway, making way to the Craftworld, while in realspace Magnus disrupted the Farseers' efforts to see the coming doom while leading the fleet sent there. An execution force of five Culexus Assassins was also deployed. The slaughter fought upon Biel-Tan was great. In bio-domes and city-scapes they fought, the Custodes slaughtering all before them. The Avatar of Biel-Tan was destroyed by Constantin Valdor, while the Culexus massacred the Farseers and Warlocks en masse. What was left was the slaughter of the remaining Eldar, en masse to avenge the attack on Terra. After a long while, it was done.
The late 41st Millennium would introduce new horrors and enemies to the Imperium, starting with a full-fledged Xenos assault on Terra itself...
