I'm surprised you didnt go the normal way of a helebron army, i was expecting at least 1 cauldron and some minimal witch units. (witches actually aren't bad with stubborn). you may want to move the ring/ bulk out the CoK, as is all shooting has a random chance to hit the champion from turn 1.
Also, don't you think 28 warriors may be a bit much?

The warriors are just there as a kind of bunker unit to keep hellebron alive until she reaches combat. Plus, if magic and shooting are focused on the rest of the army, then the 28 warriors plus hellebron will get there with some rank bonus.

I was thinking about a khainite army, but decided against it. Micght give it a go later though. Something like:
Hag+cauldron BSB (rune of khaine, manbane)
3x 15 Witch Elves (FC, rune of khaine)
2x 10 Executioners
Assassin (+1HW, rune of khaine, manbane)
2x Hydras

Welcome eleveninches in D.net!

One of the main advantage of Hellebron is to make WE core troops.
There you can run amok with the double-COB (including BSB), many small WE, and double special Execs!
However, the army will suffer a lot from magic and shooting.
Against that, you need a scroll caddy and some screens, either harpies or RHB corsairs (very nice to take away would-be baits for frenzied WE).
You can consider the COK with ring, they make a great complement.
Hydras for the protection against shooting.

However, I do not know that from personal experience.
Someone must try!
