Castellan’s Consort is the squad’s assigned Hellhound flame tank. Named after the fast moving and fiery courtesans that frequently chase after (mostly unsuccessfully) Cadia’s elite, the Consort lives up to its namesake as a fast attack Imperial Guard vehicle. Fast, heavily armored and able to deliver devastating wreaths of flame, the Hellhounds of the 501st excel in roles as hit-and-run vehicles.
Like the men of the 501st and its namesake, the regiments Hellhounds are not meant for prolonged engagements, where their flammability becomes a liability rather than an asset. While more heavily armored than a standard pattern Chimera, protracted firefights increase the risk of a well-aimed killshot which would rupture the vast promethium tanks in a single cataclysmic explosion.
Recently manufactured and equipped, the machine-spirits of the Consort seem eager to greet the foes of the Imperium and are less obstinate than those of the plodding but implacable Leman Russ.
