I have been playing HotS a decent amount and I have found that the Hellbat is a really annoying unit and when it is massed it is hard to counter that. A good source that would tell me a good counter for such a situation, would be nice, or some info on the spot right here. Any would be good.
Well Collosus should be able to deal with them on mass, which is what the OP is talking about.
Archons would also do I guess, the only concern is they could just transform into vehicle mode and harrass if you invest in too many slow units.
That's why I suggested Force Field...It will stop or slow down their movement....I guess Time Warp will also do. As they're close combat units they need to move to their targets. impediments like time warps or force fields are quite suitable.

And no colossus is not the solution since the Terran will have vikings and tanks as well, which makes using Colossi a colossal waste of money... :P The alternative could be psi-storm, but 2 base Hellbat pushing actually hits well before storm, and it is why it is imbalanced. In lategame, if there are hellbats, tanks and mines + viking/Raven support, you basically cannot really do much because your HT will never get in range, your colossi get vaporised, you archon/Zealot don't exist, etc, etc. If your opponent is playing poorly, you can probably get a chance to beat him with better positioning, but as of now, Hellbats are too strong and need to be toned down to allow Protoss to at least use Blink Stalkers against Hellbats...
