Is it possible for the Humans to make their own separate empire/civilization? But not be allied with the Imperium or Chaos? It'd be kinda neat.

I'm sure there are still civilizatons out there somewhere that haven't been found by the Imperium or had contact with Chaos. Its a big galaxy.

Awsome. I'd like to create a small republic civilization for my army. Big Imp Guard conversions.

Heh. The imperium isn't even a single civilisation in reality. Imagine all the different cultures, tribes and factions on earth. Now multiply that by several billion. That's the imperium.

But do any of these unknown civilizations have space travel? Do they have armed forces capable of mounting some sort of defense against xenos? Would they even be as human as Imperium humans after a couple dozen millenia?

I think if they don't have space travel or some means of defending themselves, they wouldn't be around. However, if they had those, they'd have come into contact with the Imperium, unless these civilizations are very far from the Astronomican or any Imperial world.

there are many planets that all they know of the Imperium is that they hsave to send them a tithe and worship the emperror. Thats it.

"Worship the Emperor or prepare for destruction!" - Something along the lines of what a commanding officer would say to that civilization. :

Yes, except for the fact that the Imperial Cult embraces an extremely wide variety of religious organizations. I'm sure that almost any religion they have would just be counted as another form of Imperial worship.

There are plenty of small enclaves of non-Imperial human worlds throughout the galaxy. I imagine that most of them are in out-of-the-way places i.e. the edges of the galaxy, especially the eastern fringe.

And even more sub-cultures within the imperium, all fighting one another for petty control.
