Looking at Crone Hellebrone's statline, it looks like she can pretty much single handedly kill just about anything out there which is enough for me to really want to add her to a 2k / 2250 pt list. However, with T3 and NO AS or WS, I'm a bit worried about her survivability as a huge point sink AND general. God forbid that the unit she's in gets charged... otherwise, she's dead meat.
Of course, I could put her in a unit with ASF banner - but that turns an already expensive unit into a unit with a big neon "SHOOT ME" sign above it.
Comments? Please? Thank you.
put in a unit of WE and screen with some dark riders ? or warriors?
have her as a hammer unit rather than anvil and you shouldnt suffer too much ballistic fire
Hmm ok that a good idea. The only issue I can see there is:
1. No plan ever makes it into battle
2. My opponent will probably recognise the threat and shoot her unit to death even if it's a flanker - plus, fewer troops mean less to shoot through before Crone can be individually targeted.
Other than that, I find that flanking units don't need the strength Crone adds to the mix - if you're flanking someone, you've already got the upperhand.
I thought of mounting Crone on a Manticore, but - again - that's a SHOOT ME sign plus an unsurvivable mount AND rider.

ASF banner is the way to go I'd say, so you'll have to keep that unit screened by harpies and pretty focus on getting it into combat.
On the upside, those WEs would be core so you'll have plenty of special choices.

honestly with hellebron she makes witch elves core so one unit of 25 witch elves with hellebron gives her 25 extra wounds to shooting plus the static 5points of combat res against almost everything. How you will want a Cauldron of Blood in your army plus maybe a BSB which can all bhe done by hags and a second cauldron of blood would even be nastier. no magic phase but alot of angry Khainates. but I have seen a maneater bull charge on hellebron when she joined a cauldron. the gut charge wounded her then she proceeded to murder every last ogre. She is murder incarnate and would even frighten shadowblade.
