What the heck is the difference? In the Codex it says that any chosen in power armor can be further upgraded to terminators for +19 points. So what is power armor?
It's the thing that gives them their 3+ save. Anything with a 3+ save is considered to be in power armor.
Please read the rules regarding what is permissable in signatures

LO is the first forum I joined and it introduced me to the world of internet forums. Thanks, guys!
Reread the rule book and then your Chaos book. We can't tell you exactly what terminator armor does because we'll violate GW copyright.Originally Posted by adienpryde
Let's just say that power armor is what all the space marines get for free and it's included in the armor save of their profile.
Terminator armor has a much better save...
I am guessing your new to warhammer. I'll give somewhat a user friendly answer.. without over stepping. Regular marines where power armor. In game play this offers the standard save for a Chaos space marine per the Chaos Space Marine Codex. A regular chaos space marine falls into a Troop slot. A Chaos Terminator is an upgrade per the Chosen entry in the Chaos Space Marine codex offering which is an elite slot, as others pointed out, a better save, and also different weapon options. Terminators tend to be more survivable then regular Chaos Marines, but are fewer in number. Their base size also is larger due to the size and restriction of the armor. This is the best i can do without getting into specifics like armor save different, and what comes with termintor armor.

Actually I've been playing for 8+ years but have never before heard normal armor called power armor, but then again this is the first time I've played chaos.
WOW....eight years eh...never heard of power armor...
I'm gonna guess that either A) you have never ever ever played any sort of SM player. You have never ever ever read any sort of SM fluff. Or C) Both.
Not to be offensive but ya, power armor is the standard armor for most marines. Terminator armor is the big bulky stuff that you see some elite marines wearing. If you read any sort of SM codex it will describe it to you.
