A few misty areas of the Chaos Fluff

There are some kinda... illogical areas of Chaos fluff, 2 which strongly come to mind...

Firstly; How is Abaddon not a Daemon Prince.. I can only assume that Daemonhood makes you Strong/Bigger/Scarier, And i'm absolutely Certain Abaddon has earnt it.

Why was Horus not a Daemon Prince, especially as he was the 1st Person to achieve Blessing of all 4 gods. If He had been promoted to DaemonHood, he would surely have topped The Emperor, because DaemonHood is said to make you strong/more powerful, ect.

Secondly;
If Daemons are created in the warp, Why dosn't Khorne just go.

"Right, 1,000,000,000 Bloodthirsters on terra, This should be fun"
"Oh and The Unbound One, you can also go there, your pretty Hench"

followed by Nurgle tagging in saying; "Oh, have some help, Endless hordes of Plague Bearers."

I don't know if i've mis-understood how Daemon summoning works, But i'm sure that they can just be summoned into Champions.

Thirdly and Finally; Khorne's Sacred sword is described as to have such immense Power that it can destroy worlds in a single blow.

Am i missing something, or can He not just smite Terra once and for all.
_____________

I know if all this was true, Then chaos would just win everything no contest. but i like chaos, and i want them to win.

My point is, this stuff needs to be explained to me, because it annoys me how restricted us Chaos are :D

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

im pretty sure horus and abbadon didnt want to be princes also it would take alot of energy to make that many daemons more than the chaos gods have and khorne is not corporeal enough to smite terra

What do you mean Khornes not "Corporeal Enough", Hesthe most powerful chaos god, The oldest; The god of Blood, War and everything else related to mass slaughter and unkempt Anihilation.

And besides, if the metaphor states he could destroy worlds with 1 blow, I doubt it matters what that planet is called, or whats on it. A Planet is a Planet

In a realistic Battle, chaos would win so easily, and Space marines and IG would have been wiped out Along time ago. The only reason that hasn't happened, is that GW Make alot of money from SM.

While the chaos gods are exceedingly powerful, it is my understanding that their power exists only in the immaterium. Hence they cant take physical form in the materium and go stomping on worlds as you are suggesting.

Deamons are created from a portion of their parent god's power, so if khorne decided it would be funsies to make 100000000000 bloodthirsters, im sure that would weaken him quite alot leaving him vulnerable to the other chaos gods

and perhaps the chaos powers do not even wish to destroy the imperium, afterall most deamon princes (esp the primarch ones) tend to stay in the eye of terror minding their own affairs

screwing up every crusade you launch and missing an entire planet with the most powerful ship based weapon around are 2 very good reason not to be a daemon, but instead a spawn.

abbadon the despoiler?, more like abbadon the slightly angry kitten

As for the DP, Horus died to soon, most of the primarchs became dp after the HH, but DP aren't my field. Not to mention most DP are stuck in the eye of terror.

im sure its more along the lines of horus and abaddon been more useful as mortal servents then daemon princes, as it takes a lot of effort for a daemon prince to become corporeal in the material realm
its the same again for khorne it prob takes alot of effort to create his daemona dn allow them into the material realm, and prob whats also stoppping khorne from shattering earth is the emperor,
