If GW or Forgeworld were going to make a new campaign book (think the Horus Heresy black books or the Badab War Imperial Armour books) what campaign would you MOST like to see covered.

Not a 40K expert, but browsing the list it seems to be a collection of wars, campaigns, battles, and engagements (some of which are labeled that way). That's not the only way to classify offensive military activities, but WCBE does separate things into groups with similar characteristics and strategic/operational/tactical concerns. It's hard to compare across the group like comparing across novels, short stories, movies, videos, graphic novels, and comics.

That said, at the campaign level, which one of those looks most like Soviets crushing resistance movements in Post WWII Eastern Europe?

For the hardcore 40Kers – is it appropriate for Tzeench to have infiltrated the Tau who are aiding the insurgency against the Imperium and then betray both the Tau and rebels while establishing a foothold within the Imperium?

A new one. Where a Tyranid hive fleet that is so massive all the races must combine to fight them. Well maybe not Chaos.

The great crusade for lower prices.

I wouldn't settle for anything less than 50K.

@etotheipi – to answer your question: entirely appropriate. Tzeentch would be one of the most likely to work on/in the Tau society, as knowledge and discovery is valued by them, and they are, for the most part, rather naive about the Immaterium and it's denizens. I'm reading the Farsight books at the moment, and something adjacent to that is happening; a Water Caste member has been possessed, and is working towards disrupting some important ongoing operations.

As for Soviet post-WW2 COIN ops, I'd suggest Imperial Guard vs. Genestealer/Chaos Cultists. It has more of a religious/mystical aspect, but I'd say that it's pretty close.

A conflict matching Ecclesiarchy and Mechanicum. Perhaps because some rare resources are found on a Shrine World, or a Shrine found on a Forgeworld. I can see the requests for Naval support coming from both sides lying on the same desk :-)

The Macharian Crusade and subsequent Macharian Heresy provide some nice opportunities to model Imperial Guard, Marine, and Chaos armies (even with some Imperial friendly fire incidents):

One that doesn't cost 30K.

Second that!
