I don't have the time but I've always wanted to see a youtube channel showing battle reports but only with models that are painted at a high degree and no unWYSIWYG paint schemes, it breaks my heart to see a World Eater battle report when they are mostly black legion, its cool if they are hounds of Abaddon but in that case they weren't really.  Also don't have anything against models that aren't that well painted, as the effort is all you should feel obligated to do but I'd just like to see a channel that focused on aesthetic and not allow the 'these ultramarines are going to proxy as Salamanders', if there are any then let me know, would be appreciated.

The 30k channel is definitely that standard, though as you can infer from their name they're Horus Heresy only. Great Terrain and production quality overall aswell.

Tabletop Tactics has pretty good bat reps. Some armies are custom regiments/chapters/warbands/etc. though.

I understand the desire for proper immersion, good looking terrain and painted models really brings out the game. I'm not the best painter after all these years(like some of the pros I know) but I still try to make it at least presentable. players like different aspects of the hobby. I see people with huge(larger than will ever be playable like building a full chapter) collections, some with fantastic mods and incredible paint jobs, while at the same time I see people who just want to play and never put paint on a model. there is a bit of something for everybody. I can't really knock people for wanting homebrew or custom paint scheme armies though, as my main force is a salamander successor that has heraldry nothing like them.

The time constraints are also a problem. finding time to make BRs(and make them look nice), especially when you play a lot of games, isn't something a lot of people have time for.

All of those are very good on the aesthetic side of things, mostly ruleswise too with occasional and understandable slips here and there (especially when showing off new stuff).
