I'm looking at constructing a retinue for Abaddon.
For this retinue I'm consider 5-7 Chosen Terminators.
Accoridng to the CSM Codex Pg 17. Models with Terminator Armour may deepstrike.
Seeing as Abaddon has terminator armour I assume he is able to deep strike too. Is this a correct assumption?
No, Joking its a yes
I dont no much about this subject as i am fairly new but is seems 2 make sense so yes (Y) :diespam: :excl: :excl:
Sure, as long as it says on his proflie that he has Terminator Armour.
Abaddon's armour is not "Terminator Armour." If you read in the profile for Abaddon, you'll notice it states that he has "Chaos Terminator Armour." There are quite a few differences between the two.
Lucky for you, however, the description for "Chaos Terminator Armour" specifically states that it has all the normal bonuses as regular Terminator Armour, and that does include the ability to Deep Strike.
Yes, but with 255 points on Abaddon, I wouldn't recommend it. One wrong scatter, and there goes the game. Have fun crushing the weakling Emporer.

If your considering Abaddon, and your bring a retinue of 5-7 then your probably going to have to deepstrike him. Whenever i have used him, I have taken a retinue of 4 terminators, and put them in a Landraider. I have found this useful, but incredibly pricey. If you deep strike him, your looking at landing him and hoping he's still alive. That being said I'd consider:
at least 6 terminators with him. Reason being if he's deep striking they can't assault so you want to shoot, with 6 terminators you can take 2 reaper autocannons, and bring possibly 2 aspiring champions. This will allow you plenty of shots, and plenty of attacks makign a pretty nice retinue. One of the advantages of chaos is you can give them power weapons, i would give both aspiring terminator champions power weapons and spikey bits, as that way when they do assault they'll strike with Abaddon luckily. You can mix in a couple of combi meltas for a nice mix of shooting for when they deep strike.
If you go the Landraider route, give them all frag grenades, power weapons, consider some chain fists, spikey bits also. Although expensive, the unit can be very effective when back by a landraider
