Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, I was thinking that the new expansion can give some more use for the Hellions and the Scourges.
They`re supposed to be better in a PS mission than in a normal one. What do You guys think? Anyone tried them in a Planetstike mission? (I just have a good squad and I am looking for ANY reason to use them.)
Well, as squads, that allready have the deep strike ability, are allowed to go into CC after they DS, Hellions finally got a little boost. still they lack the resistence in CC that the wyches have, or the offencive punsh that the inccubi bring, so still not my first choice. but if you have a squad, why not take it ;-)
With the assault from deepstrike bonus they might have become a useful addition to our arsenal. However when you work it and look at the points cost asscoiated with the hellions vs the wyches with the wyches you are getting a squad of 8+raider for near equivalent points to a squad of 9 hellions.
The so the issue is you are swapping a raider for another hellion plus the ability to deepstrike assault and a 4++ save and wych weapons for a +1s in the first round of combat and H&R. Bit of a toss up really. The fact you are forced to use h&R isn't good however it does help in getting the charge (if you don't get nuked).
I'd give them a shot for sure you might find them worthwhile
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
So they now can assault after Deepstriking? (Gotta buy me that book!)
Small squad of three Hellions, two with Blasters get two shots off into a squad then charge into assault, this wouldn’t work well by itself but in conjunction with another unit it could be just as useful as a unit of Mandrakes revealing for the same function.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Yes, I know about the point/effectiveness that is why I always used something else instead of Hellions. And I love the models (I know, it is weird) and the idea of skyboarding pirates, so I was happy to read the PS rules.
I hoped that someone tried them... I guess I got to whenever I`ll play PS
