When Abaddon lets his hair down, he transforms into a sparkling bishie dreamboat whose dazzling beauty blinds all that gaze upon it and causes Slaanesh hermself to tremble in jealous rage/ecstasy.

The power of Kay-oss stops you from aging, but it will make you really ugly. And smelly.

>And Talos hated his warm, welcoming smile. He could almost smell the corruption beneath the man’s skin, a rank scent of charred metal and polluted flesh that teased the edges of Talos’s senses.

>‘You smell that?’ he voxed to First Claw.

>‘Yes,’ from Xarl. ‘I smell spoiled meat and… something more. They are ripe with corruption, all of them. The Terminators are likely mutated under their armour.’

>From there, their replies deteriorated in usefulness.

>‘The Warmaster smells like he’s been boiling human flesh in engine oil,’ Cyrion ventured, slightly less helpfully.

It would have been very surprising if it had, considering that prior to the 13th Black Crusade Abaddon only made one dedicated attempt to take Cadia (the 2nd BC). The other times he threw dudes at it to keep the Imperium busy while he went out to pursue his real objectives, or just ignored it completely.

>“Another twist of the knife in the flesh of the Unforgiven?”

>“Indeed.”

>“And what is it you wish of me for this accomplishment?”

>“Nothing. Save that, when the Tower of Angels comes to avenge this wrong, you leave them for me.”

>“And that is all?”

>“That is all,” confirmed the robed figure, turning to leave.

>Abaddon nodded to himself and said, “My spies tell me that the Imperium arises resurgent from the violence you have unleashed. The common herd’s faith in the False Emperor is now stronger than ever. Tell me why I should be thankful.”

>The robed figure turned his head and said, “Cadia is yours for the taking, Despoiler. Everything else in this war of yours is but a sideshow. So why concern yourself with my agenda?”

>“Because nothing must prevent final victory here!” roared Abaddon, “This war is what I was created to do, and everything before this moment has been but a prologue. The Imperium is weak, stretched too thin and assailed from without and within. It is a rotting corpse, with maggots writhing in its belly, and it must fall.”

>“Nothing I intend to do will prevent that,” assured the warrior.

>“Your soul is forfeit otherwise,” promised Abaddon. “This I swear by all the Daemons of Chaos.”

>The robed warrior nodded, accepting the Despoiler’s threat and slipped from the darkness of the command bridge.

>Abaddon returned his gaze to the gently revolving image of Cadia on the hololith and cupped the image of the planet in the Talon of Horus.

>“Cadia is mine,” he hissed.

>'Hannibar of Barca,' the Warmaster said. 'He will accompany you on this mission. It is my unalterable command that you both fulfill the separate roles I have intended for you.'

>'Warmaster,' said Siaphas, bowing again as he pondered this new and most unwelcome twist to events. That there was a double meaning in what the Despoiler had said was obvious, but why, of all candidates, would Abaddon have selected the Beast of Barca for this mission? Hannibar was notorious, a mindless animal in human form, and one of the followers of that arch-maniac, Khârn the Betrayer.

>Like Siaphas, the Khornate berserker champion had seriously fallen from the Warmaster's favour. He and his legions had been ordered to attack and seize the Imperium mining world of Achilia, with the aim of enslaving its population and turning the outpost into a supply and refit point for the Despoiler's warfleets. Instead, the berserker fool had allowed his troops to not only butcher the entire population but was further unable or unwilling to control them when, their bloodlust unfulfilled, they then fell upon and massacred those contingents of other Chaos troops which had supported them in the initial invasion.

>The Warmaster was not slow to show his displeasure. The mines and workshops of Achilia were still manned with an army of slave workers, but it had been Hannibar's own troops who had taken the place of the exterminated civilian population, while Hannibar himself had been banished to the remote fringes of the war where he might learn to tame the worst excesses of his Khornate bloodlust.

Slight correction, he only sees 10 Black Crusades, 7 of which are the "Abandoned One"'s - the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th (or possibly 6th), 7th, 10th, and 12th. I think it may have actually been written before GW made the 13th Black Crusade a thing.

Also, it's funny how it took Imotekh - greatest strategist the galaxy has ever known - months before he decided to attack the supply worlds instead of facing the forge world head on. On the other hand when Abaddon - so often ridiculed as an incompetent armless failure - wanted to cripple the naval fortress Cancephalus, its supply world Antecanis was his very first target.

2003 I think. And GW has had the timeline stop at the crusade's outset since at least 5th edition. None of the campaign's events are brought up in any recent material - the only remaining references are in old books like Codex: Eldar, and I imagine they'll be quietly removed once said books get updated.

Which sucks, but is true (thanks Cruddace, for ruining the setting).

Because Warp travel and derivatives should be the only FTL in the setting, otherwise you're breaking too much, too fast in terms of suspension of disbelief.

>“Twelve times has the Despoiler held the galaxy within his grasp, and each time he had but to claim what was his for the taking. I am now sure there exists some greater scheme, some unfathomable logic driving Abaddon in his endeavours. I ask myself, ‘Why has he not claimed the gifts the ruinous powers must certainly have proffered him? Why does he still walk amongst mortals when surely the path of elevation to Daemonhood has been set before him twelve times and more?’ The one conclusion I can draw is that the Despoiler’s motives lie not with the abstract, spiritual power of the Empyrean: more, they lie with the mundane, with physical, earthly power. Abaddon is driven by hatred and bitterness, to such an extent that he will not rest until he sees righted the wrong he perceives committed against him and his kind ten millennia past by our lord the Emperor. Perhaps after his thirteenth Black Crusade he will consider his mission complete, and only then will he assume the mantle of Daemonhood, over the very ashes of the Imperium.”

I can't wait to read about how the Heldrake was at the forefront of all the Black Crusades and it was only thanks to the flying daemon engines' support that Abaddon was able to violate the flesh of the Blood Angels on Mackan.

>Zaraphiston was not alone in this regard: many before him had plotted in secret against the Warmaster and the husks of their daemon-devoured remains were there for all to see, hanging around the walls of the vast chamber alongside all the other captured war banners and heraldries of thousands of Imperial Guard regiments and more than a hundred Space Marine Chapters, mute evidence of the Warmaster’s victories over his enemies.

Abby just wants a Blood Raven banner to complete his collection. He's already got Angels, Drinkers, Legion and Swords - all that's left is Ravens.

Wacky webway hijinks are probably the biggest advantage the Eldar have to offer.

>The hunt continued for six months, with Imperial and Eldar ships patrolling through long forgotten systems in a desperate bid to find Abaddon and his horrific weapons. Then the forces opposing Chaos achieved a breakthrough – the Eldar had located Abaddon’s fleet in the Lower Lysades and were able to use their sophisticated ships to trail him through the warp.
>Using ancient warp gates shown to them by the Eldar, the Imperial Admirals sped across the sector and arrived five days before Abaddon was due to reach the area. With a constant stream of information concerning Abaddon’s actions, the Imperial ships and Eldar lay in wait.
>Outnumbered and caught by surprise, there was little the traitorous ship captains could do exept die fighting. For three days the two mighty fleets battled, inflicting horrendous casualties on both sides. But for all their ferocity, the Chaos ships simply could not match the forces arranged against them.

He would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those meddling elves.

Abaddon was there first.

>On the world of El’Phanor, the Despoiler exterminated the kin of the Kromarch and on Mackan, Abaddon earned the eternal hatred of the Blood Angels when he slew their warriors and violated their flesh.

>The Heretic Archivist of the Gethsemane Reclusium (executed 963.M41)

Note that saying he held the galaxy within his grasp twelve times kind of contradicts a part earlier in the 3.5E codex which states that some of the Black Crusades were just relatively small-scale raids. But the speaker is a heretic, so whatever.
