Other than Horus, what Primarch do you think could have won the HH and dethroned the Emperor?
Perty: I honestly think he could have, if he could reach Terra, He was a great military mind and he'd orchestrate the war with the siege solely in mind, knowing that to take a castle you need at least 3 times as many troops, I doubt he would have ordered the culling at Istavaan 3, he'd probably have found another way.
Fulgrim: If he wasn't a daemon prince I think he'd have done it, because I don't think Chaos knew they wouldn't have won and were more interested in gathering an army within the materium and to kill the Emperor later on.
Magnus: was an incredible mind but was never known as a great military mind and he was too self involved during the HH
Angron: wouldn't cared as much about winning than killing every single star system in the galaxy between Istavaan and Terra, he'd have never have gotten there lol.
Mortarion: Seeing as he is a dark horse its anyone's guess
Alpharius: another dark horse, but I wouldn't think he'd be great as a leader of vast armies as that's not really his MO, though he does lead a legion and two heads are better than one with Omegon.
Cruze: seeing that he was having his mental breakdown at the time, a definite no.
Lorgar: Probably but he had a massive part in orchastrating the whole HH and failed, though maybe without Horus he could have done it.
