Welcome to Librarium Online!
I has recently been versing chaos and SM but for some reason i hardly ever win. My opponents often use terminators and that is were i have the most trouble at.
Can any one help?
Also which one will be a better HQ against chaos, Big Mek with shokk attak gun, or ghazghkul thraka?
AP2 weaponry, multi-shot weaponry (enough to force a LOT of saves), and PKs are your best bet against termies.
The SAG is quite random, but a lot of fun. Ghaz is plenty expensive and boosts your army significantly, plus he hits like a train in combat.
I'd just use your typicaly huge Slugga mob against termies, they have enough attacks to force saves and the PK Nob really puts the hurt on.

Ghazghkul is the more reliable HQ pick. The shock attack gun can be devastating but is very random and an untimely 6" scatter can really hurt your plans. G is a beast with a huge number of attacks on the charge. His special waaagh will be invaluable to you, helping to get your boyz to where you need them. and with his save turning invulnerable that turn he can take care of a squad of terminators all by himself! ==Me== was right on the money saying pk's and forcing lots of saves are your best bet.
Firstly.. mass termies? easy. mass boyz.
one termy= 7 Boyz at LEAST, point wise. throw in a nob wid a PK, get GHAZ, who is a MACHINE to lead the mobs, and just swarm the termies.
I rarely have trouble against terminators, but I don't use Ghazghkull. He costs way too much. Instead, the best weapons are kustom mega blastas and powerklaws. I did very well against marines at the last tournament I played in, and my main strategies were massed boyz, trukks, and most importantly, killa kans with kustom mega blastas.
I kept the killa kans in reserve and then when they came out, had them shoot the terminators. They can kill quite a bit, especially considering that the terminators aren't really a threat to them (as long as you don't let them assault you).
Lootas also work well, just from the sheer number of shots/saves. The secret with beating marines is volume. Just use a MASSIVE amount of attacks to bring them down. If they have lightning claws, I'd shoot them. If they have assault cannons, I'd assault them.
Above all, make sure your list is chock full of powerklaws. Good luck!
