There is a helbrute dataslate that can be downloaded from blacklibrary.com that has all the formation info.

OK, so I read through the dataslate, and I am a little confused... does a formation of helbrutes count as 1 elite choice? It does not specify in the dataslate. Does it take up any force org??

From my understanding, they take on the usual role of elites but do not take up slots on the Force org.

correct me if I'm wrong.

I thought formations stood separate from normal detachments, they only follow their own rules and bonuses and do not benefit from things like objective secured if you take a combined arms detachment.

At least I think that is what they do.

Can you take these in a normal list or does it count as unbound?

As far as I am aware, you can take a formation with a Battleforged List, however, it does not benefit from Objective Secured.

Formations is just like an FOC only with more restrictions, they are both detachments.
Any army can have as many detachments as you'd like. You CAN run just formations if you want.
