he has term armor which comes with the ability to deep strike, so yes you can Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

but be warned that would be a very expensive unit that might not get on the board or if placed in a bad spot get toasted. a unit like that people will focus on it.

Yeah, at 275 points and a squad of terminators, thats alot of points your opponent won't have to worry about for awhile... if you get unlucky and dont get him in for awhile that is.

Id be more inclined to slap him in a land raider, but now your talking close to 700 points for that raider and terms alone.

Abbaddon will tear pretty much anything in the game, the only problem is trying to get him to earn his points back...

Yeah, he's pretty overkill against most things. Abaddon + Terminators really doesn't kill much more than a squad of Terminators should. Just make sure you have a chainfist or two to crack those landraiders.

He shines in apocalypse tho, with much more enemies to choose from and the table full of tightly packed units he'll earn his points back in a turn or two easy, still probably a bad HQ choice for a regular game.

In Apocalypse.. oh yeah, for sure. You can deep strike him and he'll come in on turn 2 max, maybe even turn one depending on your strategems.. but yeah for a strtegic type game, 1750-2000.. hes got alot of work to do.

I used him a few weeks ago against Stash in a 1750 game. Ive never used him before, but he finished the game without a wound. I think he killed a chimera and one guardsmen squad, and even though i won the game it really the resuklt of anything Abbadon did. A smart opponent would just run away from him or try to tie him down with something cheap like lesser daemons or something.

Anyway, good advice all around for Abbadon.

Liar! He took one wound in that game! But it wasn't from anything Stash did. Abaddon took a wound walking over the very Chimera he killed:)

hey thx

Post  stealth992 on Sat Jul 11, 2009 3:22 am

yeah thx for advice. but yeah i was just looking at deep striking abaddon as an option because he is my only hq unit besides kharn and I need to field abaddon for my higher point games due to a lack of options. a land raider might be something i'll consider sometime in the future. but for now i've got everything in rhinos moving at 12 inches so abaddon ends up getting left behind. right now my army isn't very competitive so i'll probably just try deep striking him. either way he's fun to field.
