So, I have for the first time discovered HFS, and i have somehow receieved it in waves. the first wave took out 2 legendary sword dwarves and a legendary axer, as well as 8 miners of considerable skill. This recent batch, i have disposed of 3 with archers, and another 3 with a legendary mace dwarf who appears to be one hit killing them like so many chumps. are HF people weak to maces? steel maces in particular maybe? oop, and there he goes away for a drink, away from the hell mouth.

No, you're just getting lucky. They don't have any special weaknesses except the traditional DF weakness to spears and arrows that all creatures with organs have.

I think somewhere between 10 and 30, but I haven't found any myself.

So you got fire spirits? Those are the worst kind.

Oh yeah, fire spirits are worth it for the magma. Magma is real useful.

the wiki article on spirits of fire:

http://dwarf.lendemaindeveille.com/index.php/Spirit_of_fire

states that they can drown. So flooding the floor they appear on may be able to exterminate them without dwarf casualties.

But i've never fought them before, so what do i know?

Yes they can drown.  But only when temperature is off. 
In my experience when temperature is on they turn all the water near them into steam well before it gets anywhere close to drowning them.

Drowning in magma isn't about [MAGMA_IMMUNE], it's about [NOBREATHE]. A legendary skeletal dragon came to my fortress one time and found that out the hard way.
Then its bones melted. Dammit, I wanted those.
