Persephoneia Command Hellhound – Homer in Warhammer 40,000

A Reading from Homer by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema
Homer-a-Day, Day 10: Persephoneia

Persephoneia Command Hellhound
Persephoneia is the venerable lead tank of a full armoured company of Hellhound flame tanks. The pitch black vehicle belongs to an ancient pattern of Hellhound with a siegetower-like raised structure in the front, on top of which the actual turret is mounted. The greater interior space afforded by this construction makes it possible for Persephoneia to carry an additional crew member and mount extensive command and communication equipment to direct the company and attached units even during complex maneouvres and large scale engagements. However, Persephoneia’s vehicle pattern does not include the hull mounted secondary armament which has become standard on later Hellhounds and despite a slight increase in armour thickness on its enlarged frontal structure, her defensive capabilities suffer for it.

Persephoneia uses the rules and statistics of a standard Hellhound flame tank with the following changes:

Front and Side Armour are both increased by 1.
She gains the Improved Command and Control vehicle trait.
Her crew of 4 consists of 1 Commander, 1 Driver, 1 Gunner (main gun), and 1 Vox Operator.
She does not mount a hull-mounted weapon and may not take a pintle-mounted weapon.

Homer-a-Day – one Homer inspired Warhammer 40,000 article per day, for one month. Pure hubris, incited when a stroll through our own archives led first to reexamining the Odysseus Pattern Astartes Greatbow and then to the exchange quoted above.

Don’t uncork what you can’t contain.
