40 cultist
25 chaos sm
12 chosen
10 terminators
1 dev squad
2 hellbrutes~ can be any dreadnaught
1 baal pred
2 rhinos

lots of stuff has changed ( i suggest you keep rolling 4th ed with some friends :biggrin: )
At 1500 pts or lower is basically a waste of points to get arhiman or abby...
About abaddon, however i suggest you get the black legion manual: not a really competitive list, but fluffy as hell.
About hariman...welll... i dunno. he's just too many points for what he is.

how does chaos sm do again other armies, my friends have alot of them
It depends how you run them to be honest - People will tell you that it's a low-tier army (Bottom 3 most likely in terms of the codex) but honestly, I don't find it that bad. It is severely outdated though, but with some creative thinking you can get some pretty fun lists.

Be advised though, that many of the tougher lists you can pull off is without any model with a powerarmor pretty much - So if you want to field Chaos Space Marines, then you are going to have a tough time if your opponent use formations and the like.

I regularly win with Chaos Marines over other players and we have Tau, Eldar, SM, Orks and Astra Militarum in my gaming group, so it's not all bad.

TL;DR version
Not good, but it can still win over any army with skill.

Same here: unless faced by the extra cheesy eldar - tau - necron lists, CSm can and will spak asses, but need skills and must rely on a couple of power builds, hampering flexibility, and variety.
Against Astra Militarum, Orks, Space Marines and others Chaos Marines, i seldom lose these days.
