View Full Version : Sorc & Hellion in a list?
10-21-2011, 04:30 AM
So has anyone ever used Sorc & Hellion in a list where they were not a requirement? I have the model but I have yet to use them because every time I look at the card I just cant see a use that makes them worth much. I play every caster but B&B which I will soon remedy.
Can someone give me a good reason to use them in a list and some strategy for them? I like to use every model but some just fall to the wayside...ie Archers, Neph Soldiers and for me Sorc & Hellion but I am sure there are some of you out there with good knowledge on this model.

Shuts down enemy models with throwing weapons.
Fast & hard to kill
solid spray thanks to flight and spd
aerial coordination is flat out nice in any list 2+ flight warbeasts
magical attacks in a list that lacks that trait for the most part
large base reach model (good tarpit)
T4 Saeryn 35pts
2x N Soldiers
1x N Bolt thrower
1x N Protector
1x Spell Martyr
Sorceress providing free charges to 4 warbeasts is reason enough to use her.
Max archers w/ UA.... that's 22 shots at a minimum of 1 damage per shot to anything under the blight storm. Critically damages high armor heavies and kills most anything else. (this used to be done in mk1 with striders and was a lot stronger, but there was a good deal of nerf that took place)
great with harriers (feat turn gives free animus, sorceress gives free charge, so harriers charge in auto hitting with full fury still. I run 3-4 harriers with B&B because of this.)

Thanks! I have yet to play B&B but now I have some food for thought when I do. I also plan on playing Saeryn more so this is good to know with her.

I haven't played a whole lot with my Legion, but one game I used Sorc on a Hellion and a full unit of archers with the UA.
Flew the Sorc up to put a blight storm on a unit of high arm single wound infantry, then used the archers to fire 22 shots into them and wiped them off the map.
A similar effect could be reached going against heavies. RAT 5 is a bit rough to work with, but against a DEF 10 Khador Heavy, they'll hit with almost all of those 22 shots, and take it down to half health. Low enough that a couple of hits from something a little tougher aught to cripple if not kill it. Tack Lylyth's feat on to it and you're looking at 33 RNG 16 shots doing atleast 1 point each.

Re-read Lylyth's feat. Only get extra shots for models in the battlegroup. (ie not archers)
