Emm

Daemonic possession? Why it's not like My rhinos have guns so what's the point in wasting points to let me move and shoot instead of just move?

U sure?

It makes sure that your Marines inside can still shoot too. If your Vehicle can't shoot neither can the embarked troops. Melta is also nice to have with how much Mech is floating around.
It says in the codex that transported passengers are affected normally. So they can't can't shoot.

Ok, I remember reading that now that you bring it up... It's never been an issue for me as I don't run DP on my rhinos either as I like the keep them cheap. So your list is fine like it is then or if you wanted some extra firepower you could exchange the extra armor for Combi-Weapons, but then you would have 20 extra points I don't know what to do with.

I have to be honest and say that I really wouldn't take Abaddon. He's just too expensive in a 1750pt game, and I don't think he'll make his points back. If you want a Terminator, try a straight Lord with DW (no Mark), or a Nurgle Lord with DW, also add another Terminator to the unit, that way the enemy has to kill 3 to get the unit below half strength.

As for the Rhinos, I wouldn't bother with DP or EA.

The Raider's fine as are the Obliterators.

• Drop all of the extra armour.
• Swap 2 Plasmaguns for Meltaguns.
• Add another Terminator with lightning claws.
• Add 3 combi meltas to the Rhinos.
