My friend just picked up the Astarte's legions book and from everything he's said they seem pretty imbalanced also I refuse to let him field any of the lords of war such as primarchs because just no anyway what do I need to kniw

Forgeworld discusses playing 40k vs. 30k in the FAQ a bit. The suggestion is only do so at larger points games (2,000+) and both players being allowed to use Lords of War (with a 25% point maximum on the LoW). But that was before LoW were a regular part of 40k games as well.
Everything I have ever told you, even this, is a lie.

On that they also mention that 30k Vs. 40k may not necessarily be balanced against each other as they were intended to be entirely separate games.. If I recall correctly anyway..

Basically you might have to do some testing and modifying of rules and such to get everything balanced properly.

The also mention you should double the size of troops. For Instance, DE Wyches should be 5-20 etc. To better reflect the volume of troops used in those times. Tbh, I find 40K > 30K. There is just soo much more AP3/2 in 40K compared to 30K that it's easy to bypass a lot of armour etc. Just play some games and give it a try.
