Has anyone ever used the Jetbike Seer Council? Farseer with fortune, Warlock with enhance, Warlock with conceal, and a few warlocks with destructor all on jetbikes. It is really expensive to field, but you have a unit that has a 3+/4+/5+ re-roll save and a bunch of S5 flame templates (and maybe eldritch blast too). Now it looks good on paper, but does it work well in game?
Short answer is no. It costs way to much and shining spears would be much better.
Having said that though I found warlocks aren't that bad in a wave serpent. They aren't the most competitive choice but fun to play and still effective. They don't need a farseer to babysit them either.
10 Warlocks /w 4 singing spears, 1 enhance, 1 embolden, 3 destructors
Wave Serpent /w twin-shurikannons, spirit stones, vectored engines, star engines
5 Warlocks /w 1 singing spear, 1 embolden, 1 enhance
Autarch /w power weapon, mandiblasters, fusion gun (phoenix lord could replace this guy)
Falcon /w scatter laser, holo-fields, spirit stones, vectored engines, star engines
That's how I prefer to see Seer Councils. They just don't really work on bikes.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
I use four, 3 with witch blades and one with a spear (the farseer has a spear also). I take embolden, enhance and destructor as the warlock powers and cast fortune on them.
It's a solid unit, if very expensive. Dangerous in combat, and still good in subsequent rounds (unlike spears). In the face of power weapons and power fists they're also still very nasty. As long as you're reasonably careful with them, they do well.
You don't need to rely on transports, or have the downside of having to get back on board after attacking an enemy unit before moving on to another target.
But you don't need conceal. You've got 3+/4+ save as it is, and as long as you don't turbo boost into LoS of psycannons, they will always get a save. Conceal is pretty much useless.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
I´d say it´s way too expensive compared to anything similarly deadly(spears, harlies in serpent, infiltrating scorps etc) to be effective. Fun to field, but way to expensive. Could be fun in (very) friendly games though. :yes:
