I have to disagree with you.
Hellions are excellent at harrassing lone units, or quickly getting to an assault that could use their help, and being Wyches they have combat drugs, which gives them an added boost. However, it is completely useless to shoot with them, because then you're denying them the ability to charge AND
get their +1S in combat.
Scourges are more then worth their points when you use them in a pure role, instead of mixing weapons. A unit of 5 with splinter cannons pumps out the equivalent firepower of 8 termintors, with the ability to always keep in range and out of assaults. I'm not going to praise their ability with dark lances though, because if they're sitting still to use them than they're being wasted. Just use the lances of your raiders and ravagers.
I never use my rangers without upgrading them to Pathfinders. EVER. They've won me so many games that they're the one unit I must always take. Terrain doesn't slow them down, they have a decent chance of popping terminators with their rifles, are a pain to remove from cover without flamers and can swap over to their shurikan pistols to double their fire output if anyone gets too close and you don't trust the rifles to do the trick.
You can always find a way to use any unit effectively, but I do have to agree that Possessed are just crap, and Burner Boys are going to get blown to hell long before they get close enough to use them unless you load them in a battlewagon (no trukk option).
Grots have lost what made them viable (their "Helpful" rules), now they're just a cheap way to fill up points and claim objectives if people ignore them.
Equipping an Inquisitor costs FAR
too much for what he does. I've found that the only really effective get-up for an Inquisitor includes him sitting back with a sage or two and several gun servitors while lugging around a psy-cannon.
Deff Dreads: Why take one when you can do whatever he was going to do better with 3 Kans? ... unless of course you have a Big Mek in the army, then the Deff doesn't take up one of your already crowded Heavy choices.
