New Terran Unit: Battle Hellion

How to make anything better: add the word 'battle' to the front. The Battle Hellion is still a Hellion, but now comes out of the factory in its bipedal battle mode. Slower, fatter, and tougher, the Battle Hellion parps out its superheated gas in a short cone rather than a straight line. I parked five of them on my opponent's ramp, stopping his Zerglings from escaping and roasting them before they could pull back. On the defensive, a gang of them morphed into waddle-mode stopped a minimal counter-push in a way vanilla Hellions never would.
