Ah, but Abaddon gets 5 + D6 (a maximum of 11 attacks!), I6, S8 attacks on the charge! (With the ability to re-roll failed to wound rolls!) He's fearless, he can't be instantly killed and he is the grand daddy of the Chaos Traitor Legions.

I think Ghazghkull and Abaddon dueling would be great, but if there would be a winner, I'd have to say it would be Abaddon, he can land 11, I6 attacks at S8! That's just plain crazy!

'The other' is perhaps one of the most feared characters in the 40k universe. It's easy for people to say he's a jumped up SMurf, but not many Orks have had Cadia on it's arse and had the galaxy within spotting distance of total annihilation. Ghazghkull is hard, don't get me wrong, but Abaddon is in a totally different league. Ghazghkull had Armageddon, Abaddon had Cadia, both of which are perhaps the most heavily defended planets in the galaxy.

The Orks and Chaos are both big players in the galaxy, as are the two leading characters of each race, however, fluff aside, Abaddon would have Ghazghkull on his arse. I'm not being a prick, trust me I'd try and do a better job :P but Abaddon can strike first, with 11 S8 attacks at WS7, Ghazghkull wouldn't survive, anyone who plays 40k will know that.

But, this is a game where dice play a big part, so who am I to say Abaddon will win? :-\
