And there is definitely one much, much, much more prevalent view of khorne and his worshipers in this setting than the more strategic and martial nobility view. I'm not denying that what you say is true (though it's the first I've heard of it!), I'm just saying that it isn't the main way of doing things.
Sure but here's the thing. The more power the warlord in question has the more effective they will be on every level. This fleet is big enough that the admiral would likely be very effective. Else a more effective leader would have squashed him by now because they'd want control of the fleet.
