So I was messing around with the idea of a unit of Haemys w. hex rifles (up to 6) paired with allies for a Farseer that can guide/fortune and some pathfinders. This would be a very annoying unit IMO. Potentially very killy, scoring, and bloody hard to get rid of outside of assaulting them. Would fit in nicely with a shooting list. Maybe go lower on the Haemys and get a CC character in the unit to help with getting assaulted. Think of it inside a defense line with a gun, and an Archon or Lelith to shoot the gun.
It isn't really a good multipurpose unit though. What do you all think about running something like that assuming you balance out the rest of the army in other areas?

The idea of Farseer/Pathfinders/Hexrifles has been around for a while now but I've not seen anyone use it in a battle as yet. It's a lot of points and can potentially inflict a lot of damage.
