    Anybody with the new IG Codex might already know about this... the Hellhound is much better than before. It isn't automatically penetrated any more, and has side armor of 12 instead of 10. Also, the summary page lists the front armor as 13! (I think its a typo.)

    The biggest change is the Inferno Cannon. While it no longer causes a fall back, it is much better. It now fires a flame template 24 inches! I for one must use one of these for now on!

    So it's copywriten. Who cares? Technically, telling some one that a Bolter is S4 AP5 is doing the same. I started this to tell people about something that may be missed that is usefull (I missed it at first.)

    As I understand it, you can place the flame template anywhere up to 24" away from the barrell of the flamer. Then you roll to hit, if you hit, then everything under the template is automatically hit with a very powerful blast. If you miss your roll to hit, then everything under the template is a partial (hit on a 4+). This is really really powerful as it kills just about everything but space marines outright. Now that it's more armored and no autopenetration, you can actually move it across the battlefield instead of hiding it until you absolutely need it.

    Also, the entry says you must place the template so that it covers the most targets possible, meaning it can be placed sideways ar angled strangely. Potentially, this can hurt alot more than an ordnance template against players that line up their squads.

    yeah that sounds right and wot i thought hourglass but i agree that finally the hellhound is a proper tank rather than a metal bow stuffed with gas! Im referring to the stupid rule that used to counted glancing hits as penetrating!

    Yes the new hellhound is a whole lot better and far more versatile. i plan on using one in my army, but they are still suseptible to small arms fire so you still need to be careful.
