The Emperor's Children and Thousand Sons both had a primarch, emperor, and 17+ other legions and innumberable army units to support them while participating in their 'humanitarian' campaigns.

Fast forward 200 years and 8 legions and their primarchs (for all intents and purposes) are trying to destroy them, trapped half a galaxy away from their father and their primarch missing or dead, have seen one primarch killed, and over 200,000 killed astartes.

That is a fair difference.

I'm only suggesting a way in which it can make sense. Plus there are only so many ways they can say things. At the end of the day, it is surprising (from the 30k pov) that the three loyallist legions survived to the 40k timeline. They theoretically shouldn't have survived; i'd have considered (in horus's position) to annihilate Medusa, Nocturne and Deliverance rendering them permanently disabled.

The 'fatal' part likely refers to the 14000 replacement astartes being completely untempered and battle experienced, compared to having 250 year old combat vets.
