So I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the big guy and his sparkle cannon outside of Issyria. I see him often in her lists but personally I don't play her but may be able to get a good deal on him. I was wondering if anyone finds use for him anywhere else or is he simply outshines by Helios?
As Demeritus said, i've seen it with Helynna because of hand of destruction, which helps getting the critical effect on the starburst cannon and make the 2d3 shots much scarier. Plus, outside of manticores, Helynna often lacks antinfantry offensive, which is Hyperion's specialty.
Kaelyssa's phantom hunter, i personally find, is actually more useful on the shots than the pie. Ignoring cover is a godsent against most infantry. For similar reasons, Vyros1 doesn't hate it at all, and could even be viable. He does prefer Helios though,i think.
I feel like kaylissa's ability to let him target his pie plate in the center of units has some legs.
Edit: and Garyth gives out rapid fire, for two huge infantry removing blasts a turn as well. Plus a nice huge base to hide behind with his acrobatics.
Pretty much these two casters. Hyperion under Kae-bae is awesome. Hype is also ran well under Ravyn. I know, who the hell is that? But snipe on that cannon is really nice, plus her feat makes for good crit fishing.
