Flesh Hound[4a]

Flesh Hounds are the Daemonic Beasts of Khorne.


These canine Daemons exist to hunt down the enemies of Khorne. They are tireless predators that possess a crimson skin as durable as mesh armour, massive claws and teeth, as well as amazing speed.[2]

Each Flesh Hound is larger than a fully armoured Space Marine, and is capable of outrunning a horse at full gallop[4b]. Each Flesh Hound has a Collar of Khorne growing out of its neck. These protect the Daemon from psychic attacks, making them highly efficient against psykers.[1] [2]

Chaos forces often use them to track down and eliminate specific targets such as enemy commanders or hidden foes.[2]

Large packs of Flesh Hounds are known to prowl the wastes outside the Blood God's Realm where they pose a threat to any other Daemon who crosses their way.[1] [2]

Collar of Khorne

Hanging around the neck of every Flesh Hound is a Collar of Khorne. Said to be forged from the very heat of Khorne's rage at the foot of the Blood God's throne of brass, these collars have the power to draw the energy from the Warp around it, strengthening the Daemon and making it immune to all forms of psychic attack.[3]
