If the "No Escape" rule was more consistent and conscripts weren't able to readily receive an order to fall back and shoot, then wyches would be a great counter. But as it stands, it's not the best option... by itself.

When playing conscripts, you just have to play the mission, and try to avoid them. When they DO get on objectives, send in a boat of wyches and force them to fall back. Use your boat too, to force them to fall back off the the objective. You'll take some losses, but remember, just play the mission and focus on getting VPs, not killing the blobs.

We'll have more answers to this VERY soon. The Astra Militarum codex is coming out next. Here's a quote from the Warhammer Community page:

"Similarly, the codex is set to diversify Astra Militarum lists with tweaks to rules and points aimed at putting each unit on an even footing. Conscripts, for example, have been changed to better reflect their inferior discipline compared to professional soldiers."

Hopefully GW's solution to Conscript spam is a good one!

I am thinking they will have a special rule that prevents them from overwatching and causes, say, d6 casualties when charged as they panic.

I doubt it.
A simple rule that they cannot use orders is enough in my mind. And there is no reason to start the rules bloat to early.
Right now their major problem comes that they are both good roadblocks and decent damage. remove the orders and they lose the damage.
No more 4 shots each, no more fighting twice or walking back and still firing. It pretty much halves their damage. Then they suddenly become a though horde, which is what they should have been to begin with.
