Hellhounds

I have had the last week off work before the university term starts again and have been a busy beaver painting masses of EPIC Guard which should all make an appearance on this blog soon enough.

2 Hellhound Formations

I have painted six hellhounds out of the twelve I own. I have left the big fuel tanks off the roof of the models for a reason, they cover up so much of the back that I think they look better without the tanks, although I am thinking of possibly putting just one fuel tank on each Hellhound mouted horizontally at the very back of the tank. I love my Hellhounds in the game, especially in the Baran Siegemasters list where they give the Infantry companies some good, cover-ignoring, short range firepower without costing the earth.

Can you see the plasma cannons in the hulls?

While I was painting them up I cam across something a bit strange. Two of the models have plasma cannons mounted in thier hulls, where normally a heavy bolter or heavy flamer would go. I am pretty sure a hull-mounted plasma cannon has never been an option in EPIC or 40k. Does anyone know if these are normal Hellhound hulls, or have they come from elsewhere?

    Hi Gus,

    Nice work on the Hellhounds. I have checked the catalogue pages in an old White Dwarf (#208 to be precise) and one of the available hulls does indeed have a plasma cannon (Hellhound hull 2).

    Cheers for that Andy and glad you found the blog too. Give me a text if you are up for a game sometime.

    Gus.
