Very little ways to deal with Fear/Pinning.  Don't have much of Eternal Warrior.  Relegated to "Heresy" era tech, but without all the nice cool/flashy things.

There is good reason that they are regulated with Herasy tech. The Imperium has continued to grow and research new weapons and tactics while Chaos cant. I have often wondered why CSM didnt get everything that Loyalsist marines had access to whey their leigons turned to Chaos.

Chaos units if they don't come stock with fearless they can take the icon of wrath, which gives it to em. They don't have any ways of giving out eternal warrior but their named character Abbadon comes stock with it, and by using marks like nurgle to raise toughness, or slaanesh to get access to the icon of excess they can up over all army durability. Chaos space Marines are very short on null deployment options outside of a dreadclaw, unless you found the warlord trait that allows infiltration.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

And no space marine chapter since the Heresy has fallen to Chaos...none, not a single one....................

Yeah my sarcasm should literally be felt at this point.  Or is it some mystical thing, when you turn to chaos all your gear just reverts to Heresy era, without the nice stuff.  Ya know, Cataphractii armors, Vulkite weaponry, only one land raider, loss of drop pods, we forget having Void Ships that can give orbital bombardment (even though Typhus's own fluff page states he's in control of a plague fleet), loss of the mass amounts of Artificer armor, phosphex and rad weapons.  Should I continue the list of obviously really weird things?  I mean most of that stuff did come out in the Forgeworld books AFTER the CSM dex. But somehow chaos lost all their drop pods, and forgot how void ships work in tandem with ground forces (even though BFG existed).

Honestly the only real things that have been developed since the Heresy is Grav-weapons, a few variants of the Land Raider, and the Storm Bolter. Even so...when new chapters end falling they would've brought that tech, so...yeah.
