Looking at getting a better light set-up for outdoor portraits and event work - anyone have experience with the AD600BM Godox light?
Looking at doing some snowboarding shots and maybe some model work which is backlit by the sun so will need the HSS to open up the aperture which will give me high shutter speeds. Something without having to carry a battery pack.
This light will cost me 540 Euro and the HSS trigger another 42 Euro. If you have equivalent quality/ability let me know to look at some options.

I have just looked at one of the reviews on youtube. It appears that this unit would fulfill your requirements for the purpose you intend purchasing for. You might want to see if you can hire one for a day to see if you like it, before purchasing.
In the review it shows in a studio setting with a colour checker card for whitebalance and it looks like he may have done about a 20 shot burst and the whitebalance appears to remain consistant throughout the sequence of frames.
It appears that the flash duration is fast enough for the purpose you need and with the correct hss trigger it will give you the hss function.
It also appears that there is also an external batter pack for when you need to have extra flash shots or faster recycle times. It only comes with one battery, which could be an issue for a who day shoot outdoors where you would use a higher output to overpower the sun and to light up a larger area. So it might pay to look at what it costs for additional batteries / battery pack.
The only downside that he mentioned was the locking handle, which needs to have a better design, this may become an issue over the life of the unit.
