Yup the title says my theory. I would like my fellow heretics thoughts on the feasibility of this theory.
Here it is:

The Chaos Gods, tired of Abbadons inability to get the job done of destroying the Imperium after 13 tries, have decided to back a new champion. Perhaps someone of great charisma and power. A leader, who like their great champion Horus, was able to turn the loyalties of fellow Marines with a mere speech. The eyes of the Chaos pantheon turns to Huron Blackheart Master of the Red Corsairs. Like Horus before him, he was able to sway 3 complete Space Marine chapters to his cause. Even now he gains followers of renegade Marines and Traitor Legionnaires. Perhaps it is time for a new Warmaster.

In the real world, maybe this is what GW is planning. There seems to be alot of favor in the new codex for Huron. Maybe the next big event, will be a Chaos civil war of sorts. A war to see who will carry the mantle of Warmaster of Chaos? The Gods could step out of the fight and let the battle happen, in the meantime it could become the greatest Black Crusade ever.... Two Chaos Warmasters factions tearing each other apart across the galaxy, Chaos cultist performing rituals to gain their aide, and all the unbridled raw emotion and power flowing in the real world could allow for the largest daemonic incursion since before the Imperium.

Sounds good?

Very good points on the Badab War. I do agree most traitor legion marines wouldn't follow Huron, but I think a Chaos Civil war would help further the gods as well. I don't like either Special Character's rules really, but I like Huron's model better. Abbadon just looks like he has a costume that Gene Simmons would wear.

However, 3 Chapters joining a rebelling Chapter Master is a big deal. That means Huron had at least 4,000 Space Marines (assuming his allied Chapters all had the codex 1,000 Marines). Lets us NOT forget that it took 13 Chapters worth of loyal Space Marines plus Imperial Guard and Navy to defeat Huron so soundly, and even then 200 Astral Claws were able to retrieve Huron and retreat to the Malestrom. PLUS the after battle fluff states that the survivors of the rebelling Chapters were deemed redeemable and sent on pentience crusades....that means there were additional survivors. Kinda sloppy of the SM to not wipe out "only" 4 Chapters.

Hurons model is nicer than Abaddons, but is also much much newer, so a better Abaddon may be in order at some stage.
That would be most welcome. I suppose those who posted the point that Abaddon has the majority of the Chaos forces are correct. It was a interesting theory nonetheless. I do think Huron is owed a little more than is given by most in the 40K world. He is as capable leader as Abaddon. The only thing I see that stands in his way is he doesn't seem to actually have sided with Chaos, moreso doing his own raiding thing.

Once again, I suppose a nod of admittance goes to the pointing out of the nature of Chaos. They do seem to play the long game. Absolute control of the galaxy by Chaos would mean the eventual end of all the "toys" the Chaos Gods enjoy playing with.
