Another question for you experienced chaos lords.
Is terminator armour really worthwhile on lord and sorcerers? My thinking is no, as they have 5+ invun saves already but I am interested to see what people think.
Does it depend on the mark given? With tzeench I guess you are as protected as they come in terminator armour.
The upgrades from terminator armour are not as good as they once were. Daemon weapons become cheaper and you get the power weapon and combi bolter thrown in.
I think the main reason to take terminator armour is if you want to deepstrike.

Definately agree with mad cat.
Unless you are deepstriking your lord/sorc or riding them in a land raider full of termies theres not much reason to take it. Wings or steeds (move mods) are a much better investment allowing you to jump between combats rapidly avoiding being shot up.
Having looked at the cost, it is only really 1/3 of the price the book says, once you take into account the weapon costs included in the price. That is not really too bad.
Deep striking with terminator bodyguards is likely to be an effective strategy, especially with an icon to make sure they land where you want them to.
Thats what i do deep strike a lord and three within 6 of my personal icon sorcerer with wings and mot so he can wind a clear zone for the boss to turn up and start the killing.
What I am thinking of doing is using a sorceror lord with lighting claws in terminator armour with lash of submission, along with a unit of terminators with two lightning claws and one with a heavy flamer and power fist.
The plan would be to teleport down to an icon, and then lash the enemy into a template formation [ I play orks a lot] before opening fire with my flamer and charging in.
Actually that is a good point, only lords can take claws. Got carried away and I thought it must be too good to be true so I looked it up.
However that just means I will add more combi flamers to the squad and give the sorceror a combi plasma with his force weapon. Drag as many enemies into close formation as I can then flame them with everyone. As my unit is deployed in base to base from a deep strike and never hit their own models, although I think the sorceror will have to deploy at the back to make sure he isnt hit by mistake.
