Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok, i have a few questions concerning seer councils and the like,
if i have a seer council of 2 farseers and 3-5 warlocks does that count as 1HQ choice, or does the 2 farseeers count as 2 HQ's?
Also, in my army, i have 1 farseer and 3 warlocks on foot, i was thinking of getting a new farseer and warlock kit, and converting them to jetbikes, and fielding them as well as my other farseer combonation, with some normal G.jetbikes around them, would this be a good idea, i know that people field a complete jetbike farseer and warlock combo, but have never seen a foot farseer nd jetbike farseer in the same army, i am thinking its a good idea, b.cause i can draw enemy fire onto the jetbikes, and get the 3+, 4+ saves, while slowly advancing the foot farsser into good positions to get mind war going, while being near cover.
i don't know if it would work, but i am surprised that i have not seen it before anywhere

It would count as 2 HQ choices. Each Farseer+warlocks in an HQ choice.
I, on a routine basis, run two Farseers, one with a council on jetbikes, and one riding along in a transport. Having a foot slogging Farseer council and a Jetbike council seems kinda pointless to me.
The problem with a seer council on foot (and I'm sure SOMEONE will disagree with me), is that they're just too slow to be a threat. Everyone runs vehicle heavy, and you'll almost never be able to get close enough to do anything other than mind war (and if you do that, your farseer is going to be able to be shot at the next turn. Remember: He needs LoS to mindwar)
Plus, its nothing for the enemy to fire a blast template your way. S6 is all it takes to insta kill your farseer. Thats all.
That's not to say a footslogging council doesnt have a place (it does), but its redundant to have a footslogging council and a mounted council.
under the old craftworld codex it would have been one HQ but as the proper seer council has been scrapped by GW it is now 2 HQs.
