I was under the impression that Honsou was not around during the HH, at least not as an IW
At the end of Angel Exterminatus it shows Fabius Bile with a geneseed tube, the only viable one saved from a fire. Only Hon... Sou... can still be read on it. An iron warriors character in the story is Honourable Soulaka. So pretty easy to guess whom his sire is.

Well the geneseed tubes was damaged, Honsou's being the only viable one. So he promptly blended it up with some stolen fist material, he did after all have plenty on hand from playing monster-maker.

so would you say he was present during the HH or not ?
We dont know if Fabius or the Iron Warriors manages to implant him in time for the Siege of Terra. Remember, this happens in the 7 year Age of Darkness period prior to the Siege. Not a lot of time for a new Astartes to gain a lot of experience, even if they use the 1-2 year turnaround method. Appearing during the Scouring period seems more likely to me.

Honsou is an aberration. He is just a blend of IF/IW/EC and human genestock. Probably that's the reason he is such a bland villain without any motivations for his actions.
