    Hopefully, this maintains the standards of how the Astares were pre-Heresy; I wasn't sure about the Lascannons on the Dreadnaught or the Command Squad, but I think it works otherwise.

Solid list in my opinion. The only thing I'd change is that since theres no special weapons in the command squad, I wouldn't give the Captain a plasma pistol but instead give him terminator honours for the extra power weapon attack.

And maybe go out on a limb and say to replace the HQ's rhino with a razorback with TL Lascannon get rid of the dreadnought and add either a multi-melta or HB/Assault cannon speeder. But thats really a preference thing.

The Assault Cannon didn't exist prior to the Horus Heresy, neither did the Razorback (the first I know for certain, the second I'm fairly sure about; it was pioneered by the Space Wolves.

Sorry to go off topic for a second but does that mean they invented both the razorback and the predator annihilator?

Does anyone else find it hilarious and awesome that the so called barbarians actually pioneered two of the most used and useful space marine tanks!

Yeah, but for the Space Wolves it makes sense. Their infantry have no wish to be burdened with heavy weaponry, wanting to be in the thick of the fight; the only exceptions are Long Fangs, who are too old to get into the fray like them youngins.

So, what to do with all these heavy anti-tank weapons... wait! I've got it! Let's do like everyone else has been for the last 38,000 years, and put them on our tanks!
