anything you want it to be as long as it's under 1000

In your case, start at 1000 marines, then figure out what they went through in that crusade, knock off the appropriate amount of marines and whatever left is what you have.

With chaos theres really no such thing as a standard number, you have to come up with it yourself and justify it with your own fluff/ideas.

Esp. when you go the "Warband" route,you can basically do whatever in that department. If I were to guess a figure, I'd say you'd have about 200-ish marine left after surviving the abyssal crusade. The 4-6th companies would prob be wiped out, 1st, 2nd, 3rd company would degenerate into infighting, the reserve companies would prob form the bulk of the warband with the leftovers of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd filling in leadership roles. You can then add on anything else later

Thats just my guess though, you can just make it up as it suits you
