Default Help vs. Chaos

Does any one have some advice for beating Chaos Space Marines? My friend is starting to build an army, and I've never played Chaos before.

What kind of Chaos army does he plan on build?
What do you have in your IG army?

I don't know what kind he intends to build, exept that he has Abadon The Despoiler. My army isn't finished, but I have 2 Leman Russ, about 40 shock troops, a chimera and 5 heavy weapons teams. And anyway, I'm just looking for general advice.

Well if he intends to use Abbadon, he'll make a Black Legion army.
But he can only use Abbadon in BIG games. :P

Yeah, but he doesn't seem to realize that. What I can't wait for is the look on his face when he realizes I can kill him with one shot from a Leman Russ.

Yeah, but Abbadon can't be insant killed.

Dear Abbey comes fully furnished with a Daemonic Rune upgrade, which doesn't allow instant kills.

I go to school with evil imp and I know the guy who is playing black legion, so I can give you some information. A few quick things:

1. He LOVES obliterators
2. He intends to use a defiler as an assault unit
3. He probably doesn't know the rules to well
4. He doesn't intend to take more than the minimum of basic marines (cheesy old bugger....)

Looking at that, he probably won't be to tough to beat. Just bring your heavy weapon and ignore abadon.

Really this isnt bad advice.. if Abaddon isn't going to be in a transport he will be foot-slogging it.. and that means he is pretty much going to be useless. He should be pretty easy to gun down if he becomes a problem. The Heavy Weapons will be more than enough to beat someone who isn't bringing much in the way of a core army.. what a fool this friend of yours is.. he will quickly learnt o fear the numbers of the Imperial Guard.
