With recent abudance of cheap ($$$) Hellions on Ebay, is there a point in getting 40 (or any number at all) of them and using them? Are they worth the effort? Edge cases, autoinclude, general use, what is the opinion? How to use them these days anyway? I like their price on Ebay atm, and are nice for painting, all that leather clothes!

I've tried using 30 hellions before, they really are not good. I try to be optimistic and use units that aren't great, but hellions really just are in a rough spot. End of the day you're paying more pts than a tactical marine for a model that dies as easily as a guardsmen, and they don't really have an impressive punch to make up for that. It's a shame because I really do love the models.

All that being said, if you really like the models I'd say go for getting 10, I've been thinking of doing the same seeing how cheap they've become on ebay. You could throw 10 in a list and not feel too bad about it considering it's not a huge investment. Definitely don't try 40 though, they just can't make their pts back when you take that many.

I sometimes use 2 squads of 5, but in my group I'm almost the only one using shooty thingies. I mostly play against Nurgle Daemons or Tyranids. I use Hellions to get to some nasty big creature (usually the only shooting model my opponent has) to occupy it while my Wracks or Wyches get closer. They actually do pretty well with +1A because of Strife, and +1T because of drugs.

Get them for 1/2 price if you can, they'll be good again one of these days.
