Hmmm... Tricksy... Normally when i'm up vs terminators I grab a Warboss with powerklaw and a Few nobs (with klaw) or a couple of boyz to protect him. What also might work is a looted wagon with boomgun since it is double the strenght of the termies toughness so it means they have instant death.

Dakka the crap out of them until they fail their saves, using whatever you have. The SAG is great since it pierces Termie armor, just hope you don't roll poorly for strength. Down the retinue and then charge Abby with a Warboss and big unit of Nobs. Let the Nobs klaw at him and try not to lose the boss. You're going to invest a lot in killing them, but since they're a big investment for your opponent it'll hopefully even out.

I would think that 30 Boyz and a Nob with a Klaw would be able to deal more than enough wounds to win combat on the charge. Do these terminators have Fists or Power Weapons?

Abbadon is a problem though. I'm not sure that there's any easy way to get rid of him. I guess if you used Grotsnik and charged them with a bunch of Cybork Meganobz?

If someone was fielding Abbadon in my area, I'd have a hard time NOT reaching for my Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thrakka model. Pair him with some nobz with klaws and cybork bodies, and you've got a unit with a good chance beating him up.

Yes, but Abaddon is an eternal warrior and can't be instakilled and the teriminators only have one wound each. Plus, the Looted Wagon doesn't have the AP to bust through their armor save.

if you want to try something that's a little risky (and funny if it works) why not use Zogwort's ability to turn abbadon into a squig

erm... Termies plus Abby are what 500+ points so egnor them. Keep them busy with a mob of boyz worth 200 ish points then throw a mob of grots at them if they don't make their points back you've won the game.if your throwing 200pts at a unit of 500+pts then you have more to spare to take out the rest.

failing that you could always throw a suicide mob of burners at them.

Burners in the BW or Trukk would thrash any squad.
