since a power fist is a weopon that doubls strength, when you hit and wound a space marine captain with three wounds is he automtically dead. i ask because my friend plays chaos and always fields abadon with a squad of terms. his strenght is 8 and that means he kills even dante in 1 hit with an unsaved invun right?....if it is right thats some serious bs

A moment of weakness spawns a life tme of heresy...
If you fail to save a wound caused by a weapon with a higher strength than your toughness value you are instantly killed regardless of how many wounds you had left. The only exception to this would be characters that are listed as eternal warriors(cannot be instantly killed) and tyranids within synapse range(cannot be instantly killed)
Double Strength + Failed Save = Death!!!
My Arena Champions: Kharn'eth The Bloodcleaver and Gorzag Iron Jaw
Note: Base toughness is used when factoring 'instant kill' for models with a modified toughness, such as bikes 4(5)T. Therefore, a bike with multiple wounds is also killed instantly with S8 and greater weapons.
EDIT: This should really be in the Rules Help forum.

Spambot kill tally. . .337
According to the BA Codex, none of their top dogs have it.
All Phoenix Lords and every model in the Chaos Daemons army are immune to Instant Death due to being Eternal Warriors (the 'Daemon' rule confers this on the units throughout the Daemons Codex).
Sammael is immune to I-D due to the Adamantine Mantle he wears, and Abaddon is immune because he's sucked up to the Chaos gods and they like him .

"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
Just field Mephisto instead of Dante and Abbaddon will run home screaming. Or both together, in a powerhouse unit of Honourguard. True that the unit will cost something like 700-800p and will die almost instantly from a demolisher blast.. but in CC it's the best SM models can offer in my oppinion. (Basically, Mephisto kills Abbaddon due to higher init and Dante's prefered enemy rules, Dante picks on the termies. And Sanguiniary priest can save Mephisto from most shooting attacks while you're running up towards your enemy. Nothing more fun than seeing Mephisto taking a lascannon shot in the belly and ignoring it with the priest. Or if Abbaddon has a power fist, then Dante and Mephisto takes out the termies and the honourguard with around 15 PW attacks, with rerolls can take out Abbaddon.)

Not to derail too much (though the question seems to be fully answered), but Abaddon would maul Mephiston in CC. They go at the same time, but Abaddon hits on 3s, wounds on 2s with no save for Mephiston, and has more attacks. Even if he doesn't cause ID from one attack, Mephiston's still no match for him.
