"Chthonic literally means "subterranean", but the word in English describes deities or spirits of the underworld"

I think that's underworld as in underground, as in not really fitting with your deep void theme
Chthonic Gods are ones like Hades but as I said it is the best I could do, if there's a better word I am happy to entertain it.
I think "Chthonic" is fine, but if you want alternative terms (maybe for use as homonyms, so some cultists may think the Emperor and Cthulhu are one and the same), may I suggest "Abyssal" and "Dagonic", the last after H. P. Lovecraft's short story, and the Philistine god that is its namesake?

Currently trying to brainstorm a few lovecraftian inspired campaign ideas.

The best I have come up with so far is an Ork Waagh destroyed planet whose spores are now causing the fauna to overgrow, reclaim, and resurrect dead Boyz.

Or

Feral Slann induced madness

Do any of you have any other ideas?

Was a Dark Eldar/Drukhari Haemonculi, or a Great Unclean One (Greater Daemon of Nurgle), responsible for mutating Ork spores in this fashion? Will this make the Marines decide, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend," and ally with the Orks coming to destroy their undead brethren for being "un-Orky", in desperation?

Mi-go secretly overtaken a subsector and making it work toward their alien ends

 

Fighting a fellow Chapter (or just a company) that have been overtaken by some kind of xeno retrovirus that slowly turned them into some kind of fish-frog creatures, and prevented them from having a problem with it

 

A book that drives the readers mad, gives them at least basic knowledge in Chaos sorcery, and/or a need to create rituals and cults praising the "Yellow King". It was printed in unknown numbers and have reappeared many times throughout the space the Prædicators consider theirs

 

A strange xeno/warp creature that resemble a void-kraken, but seems to have a kind of intelligences, mostly noted by the way it fights and that it create strange cyclopean structures on planets or asteroids that it visits. Any living world that it lands on go through a complete natural disaster and drives sentient inhabitants mad. It appear into reality and disappear out of it following a pattern, the Prædicators try to find out where it will appear next and there damage it enough that it disappear before destroying any Imperial world/s.

 

Finding out that a recruitment world have been “seeded” by gene-steelers

 

Necrons (ancient sleeping evil and all that)

What facilities do Space Marines usually sleep in? Has there been any descriptions of this?

Do they get their own quarters? Bunks?

As I picture all Prædicators using their maximum amount of time able to stay awake out of fear, I now too picture them having specialist sleep pods/areas to be safe

Monastic cells is the classic, but I'm rather certain that this, like much else, depend on the Chapter

How about sleeping while wearing special headsets/helmets that prevent the sleeping brain from entering the rapid eye movement phase, or otherwise dreaming?

The pauldron design looks good. Is the knob on the bottom meant to imitate design elements from historical armor? Or is it a fantasy element, maybe representing R'lyeh, where "dead Cthulhu waits dreaming"?

Haha nope, nothing so clever.
I just replicated a shoulder pad design from the firstborn Tactical kit. I'll add an Octopus to the 8 different designs in the box to add some variety
