Default Most effective Seer Council for 1k-1.5k games

I have just finished reading Farseer, as well as an old Battle report between Ulthwe (led be Eldrad) and Chaos (led by Abbadon) and I have suddenly had a new inspiration to start an Ulthwe army, rather then Beil-tan or Saim-Hann. What I have always had problems with was the Seer Council. When is it over powered, or to much points for what if does, especially in smaller games? I'm thinking no more then 2 Farseers and 5 Warlocks MAX.

Any way, like the topic suggests, what would you suggest for the most effective Seer Council for games rangeing between 1000pts and 1500pts?

When I played ultwhe for a while I found that one of the most effecive combinations for a Seer Council was 3 farseers, one with guide, one with fortune and one with Mindwar, accompanied by 4 warlocks, one with augment, one with enhance and two with destructor.

A Spirit stone costs exactly the same number of points as a new Farseer. I thought that I may as well get another Farseer, because that's one more person in the squad (meaning the squad survives longer) and also if a Farseer dies, it means that I've only lost one power, whereas if i used spirit stone, I would have lost two powers

Farseer is a novel. I read it its not bad but its abit gory... overly so. Still a good read. Its about an Ulthwe Farseer... and I want to say the girl is a Dire avenger... Exarch maybe. Hmm. And then the human but read the book for yourself.

As for the seer council I need one myself for my Ulthwe force and I am CONFUSED. Doesnt each Farseer take up one HQ slot then you would not be able to take 3 of them under the normal organization.

an ulthwe craftworld army may have up to 5 farseers(!) and any # of warlocks, and you have to at least have 2 farseers and 3 warlocks. and there's your answer

Can I use a Warlock model as a Farseer? If so I one could just buy the Seer council boxed set and have two as seers and three as warlocks.

Arch thing??? Like that Webway gate lookin thing or two of them??? I have 1 seer the one with the shurican pistol and the spear with the two webway gate lookin things one on either side of his head like winged crests on his helm. Are those what your talkin about? Cause I have seen farseers without those.
