Hey mate. I was about 75% through typing up my battle report and my computer shit itself and all my work was gone! I cbf re-typing it so I thought I'd just let you know how it went. The helbrutes were terrible. But to be fair, they did land 4 hits, 2 each, with their las cannons. Unfortunately for my helbrutes I rolled 1's to wound with a 2+ to cause ID on broadsides. So... can't really give you an accurate description. All in all, I fired 13 Lascannon shots, I hit with 11, and I wounded with 2. Needless to say my rolling was atrocious! I'll probably give the 'Brutes another go because they did attract a bit of fire from things that needed 6s to glance. They survived 3 turns but as I said, never did any real damage because I couldnt roll a 2+ for the life of me. Hope this helps you decide whether to use them or not.
