What if a deamon picks up a regular gun and shoot the blank? I mean I can see claws, tentacles and deamonic ammo and blades melting away when approaching the blank but if fired with regular gun would die regardless of the one firing the gun, unless is a warpbased weapon.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Would a gun in the warp not be warp tainted by necessity?  Wouldnt a demon with the intellectual capacity to run this exercise corrupt the gun enough just with its intent and physical touch?

Well yes, the idea is that a regular blank can just get his head eaten by daemons, they just cannot directly corrupt his mind or use magic (however, if one were to throw a metal stick at him using magic, that'd probably work). Now, a powerful blank has that effect on daemons that they physically have trouble even coming close, but then there's mentioned Materium beings surviving in warp, most notably Chaos Space Marines which might happily cut the blank up. Of course then there's the idea that the powerful blank would just cause majority of warp around him to not exist for some time (say, the floor), so they might as well be stuck falling (floating?) in warp until they die from thirst or other natural causes, or eventually hit a material object like a Space Hulk or maybe those planets in Eye of Terror.

It's possible for mortals to survive in the warp, besides the poorly written Kaldor Draigo there's also chaos champions, orkz, a silver armoured warrior who managed to face Slaanesh personally before falling, some chaos marines travel with no gellar field, the teleporting space crocodiles and various other bits and pieces here and there, so maybe a blank would just get stuck walking around the nightmarish landscape that some beings perceive the warp as.

You've basically pointed out the fundamental issue with the question: anything goes, as per usual. People have been shredded in to ethereal protoplasm by being dropped directly in to the warp, some people travel through it for split seconds, some people live in it and have grand ol' adventures. Some Chaos warfleets use Gellar fields, some use sorcery, and some apparently just bathe in raw Warp energy during their travels.

Why do Space Hulks with sporadic Gellar field coverage not emerge from the Warp as a piece of Limburger or a sound or Tuesday? Instead they emerge as mostly recognizable things with mostly traversable features wot makes for cool adventures.

The fact there's something in 40k with a stated and canon cause and effect merely means not enough authors have been given enough free reign to interpret what that means. I'm sure some author somewhere has at least thought something like "A blank being dropped in the warp creates a psychic explosion that destroys all warp energy within that part of the warp and that drives people in real space within the whole segmentum insane." I mean, Culexus? They've already weaponized that shit. Warp Storms both exist as things in the warp with a specific position and location that can be avoided, and yet the warp is nowhere and everywhere all at once, so how can any given thing be in a given place if everything is just a mental metaphor or construction to make the Warp navigable. And then the fiction attributes certain behaviors to the Warp in certain areas of space, which is a direct contradiction to the previous idea. Ships don't exist in the warp in physical space, yet they do when something dramatic needs to happen like overlapping Gellar fields. Sometimes convoys actually exist as following each other in some sort of shared travel, or a ship stalking another ship. Other times fleets reach their destination sporadically, each on its own little journey separate from the others. Entering realspace within a solar system's gravitational field creates grav waves that pancake ships and planets alike, except when it doesn't.

It's what makes answering 40k questions fun but also finger-pushing-glasses-up-nose frustrating.

Imperium uses the metric system. Cain's regiment uses "kloms" as slang for kilometres.

All fanfics are heresy, each and every one, especially the shipping ones. Those are by far the worst.

I thought the warp wasn’t super habitable unless it was close to the eye or the maelstrom, where physicality is locked down a bit more.

Plus I think the demesnes of the gods have a bit more corporeality too, mostly through sheer will.

I wonder if it's like 9 Princes In Amber.  The realms of chaos are ruled by a surprisingly functional, deceptively orderly court.  Much as the planes of order culminate in a court of backstabbing miscreants who fake decency and decorum.
