Let's say that there is a squad of five orks directly in front of my hellhound and are within range. Do I place the template "horizonatally", essentially covering all of the orks, or do I position the template like a normal flamer, only being able to cover one, or two orks?
Woo I was just about to post this lol!
New here? welcome gents. You place it horizontally. With flamers, all partial hits are considered hits, no need to roll. count all hits, then roll for wounds and saves. BGB p 31

With the Hellhound the flamer is not auto hit. First everything it touches is hit if you roll your bs skill(4). If you miss then you get to roll on each one with your bs (4) again.
Didn't know it was a special weapon that didn't follow rules, sorry.
I'm new here too but I think Bonecrusher's explanation is incorrect.
According to the rule book (ie. don't know anything about any FAQs), you roll to hit once using the Hellhound's BS (which is 3). If you hit then all models partially or wholly under the template are hit.
If you miss, then each model (wholly and partially) is hit on a 4+.
Gotta get me one of these puppies.
I think the question is do you have to place the template as it would realistically be. Generally, flamer templates have to cover as many models as possible but does that override the common sense of not having the template anywhere near the gun?
The answer to the question of if the template needs to be close to the cannon is no.
This is what makes this flamer template weapon different from the other flamer weapons.
The inferno cannon shoots the template to a target further away. So the entire template has to be within xx (not sure if I should specify the stats ... u know ... gw legal crap) of the hellhound. It doesn't matter that the teardrop is pointed in the "realistic" direction.
The template could be perpendicular to the HH.
