Default Hellhound!

Hey, if the 5th ed rumor mill is right, shooting through your units will give the enemy a 4+ cover save. However, what about the ever-so-useful Hellhound? as a flamer weapon, there are no cover saves against it! Would it work like this?

Being a tank I imagine it will be able to fire OVER friendly units (other than size 3 vehicles) rather than THROUGH them. That would make more sense...

Also bear in mind you're asking us to answer a question about rules that do not yet exist. :

true true, I just found the concept of " ok I give you a cover save...which I then ignore " to be amusing.

Wait until the new rules come out and hopefully, the Hellhound's flamer doesn't hurt nearby troops, allied too.
