They scare the pi$$ out of my firewarriors. I played against a guard army I had to hold some bunkers, and I had never seen a hell hound in action before. He rolled one up to with in 24" of a bunker, and killed everything inside. One of the better anti-personel tanks in the game, from what I have seen.

They are absolutly brilliant at flushing out well dug in units in cover like your fire warriors mentioned above ,and make a mockery of large lightly armoured units like orks and gaunts they are a must against horde armys. plus your almost certain to hit somthing, not like ordanance when it may scatter.

Two words: Promethium death.

They are brilliant tanks, and I strongly advise getting one.

I like them too. Pretty good tank for their intended use and quite realistic too given the way real life flame tank fire.

can we say these tanks are the absolute bane of tau seeing as kroot in cover get rosted and the fw are just the same. I just like avoiding cover saves far to much.

Not bad armor for the entended purpose of creeping behind cover and even if your enemy goes out of his way to get them that means atleats a dozen guys per game gets taken out by the hellhound indirectly or not.

+++Well, I hope to eventually get one for my Traitor Guard army (which still only consists of one command squad atm lol), but I like the look of the other Fast Attack choices as well. I say, if you like it, buy it!+++
