The WW Hyperios is an anti-aircraft weapon rather than artillery. IAv2 also has the Land Raider Helios which is a LR with a Whirlwind missile launcher.

No, not really. Space Marines were never meant to have any significant indirect-fire capabilities, as they're supposed to operate as fast-response teams capable of quickly deploying anywhere in the galaxy where they are needed, with just enough armored support to get them to the mission and help them survive. They do take heavily armed and armored vehicles when the mission requires it, or if they're going on a sustained chain of battles like a crusade, but much of that is in the form of Land Raiders, Vindicators and aerial support (Thunderhawks). Space Marines don't take vehicles or equipment that need to be dug into defense positions, so artillery isn't a major consideration for them.

There are none really in the Space Marines individual vehicle-lists. The Whirlwind is the only Artillery-type vehicle they possess solely for SM use.

The Basilisk, Medusa and the Bombard are the other vehicles elsewhere that are used by Imperial Forces. These could be fielded by an combined IG-SM army possibly?

Drop Pods with deathwind launchers are annoying enough as a type of artilery, marine style..

That and drop podding Thunderfire Cannons, and THunderhawk-dropped Whirlwinds and Vindicators.
