Why would they?

Chaos doesn't view itself as evil, same with the dark elves, or orcs. Chaos follows know of the gods, they are real in the north unlike the weakling gods of the southlands. They are doing whats right to them, the southerners betrayed them stole their rightful lands.

If a warrior did ever fall from the path, he would be more likely be turned into a spawn

Like Barnster said, to a man of the north, taking what you want through strength, and worshipping the gods, are wholly natural. Not only that, They are actually quite honorable and loyal. They are not evil because they live differantly or are viewed as evil. they are living the only way they know how.

I think people might be getting them confused. There's your norse marauders, who worship aspects of the CHaos Gods - for example, they appreciate strength, perfection, power and fear, but as far as I know, they don't actively worship those Gods.

The Chaos Warriors themselves have only one goal, and that is to increase their strength. There's no "turning" of Chaos Warriors - Chaos is the anathema of EVERY other god - including Gork despite some similarities.

Many Chaos Warriors have fallen from the worship of Sigmar, the Lady, etc, and are unlikely to willingly go back to their worship after tasting the power of Chaos, either a) if they know what's good for them, or b) Chaos gives them the outlet that other religions didn't.

I've always imagined a somewhat 'Faustian' bargain involved in becoming a Chaos Warrior as well - from what i gather they pretty much commit themselves to their gods, and get boons in return. Said deal i've never really seen as a refundable gig even if they wanted to!

Also, i don't really see any of the warhammer races as being 'Good' per se, all of them are in it for themselves at the cost of others afterall, the Bret Lords don't have any qualms with keeping their subjects firmly under the heel, and the Empire's hardly a fun place to live either for that matter...

Everyone has their own big flaws except the goody-two shoes completely perfect High Elves, who GW should let Mat Ward get near lest he turn them into WHFB Space Marines. So the question is more "Would WoC turn away from Chaos?"
But yeah, probably not. The WoC are only allowed to become Chaos Warriors because they're completely devoted to Chaos. They wouldn't turn at all.

Give them Mat Ward. He actually might make them balanced. Adam "Temakador" Troke fucked them up so badly it's unreal. At least now, they don't need ASF, as I5-6 troops are faster than many Lords/Heroes.

I can imagine a Chaos Warrior that perhaps regrets his devotion to the chaos powers...especially if he suffers from one or more of the more debilitating or obviously displayed chaos powers/mutations. I imagine such a character being bitter toward their 'chosen' patron, but held by that power in servitude, unable to free him/herself from the consequences of the choice they made however many years ago. It would take a strong will indeed to renounce one of the chaos powers after becoming one of their favoured champions (i.e. a fully fledged Chaos Warrior, as opposed to a mere cultist) and even then the consequences are likely to be dire indeed without direct intervention from a higher power on your part (which, given the nature of the gods of light, is highly unlikely)...becoming a spawn would probably be the least of your worries!
