All your points are good, of course.

The obvious solution, incease the shield multiplier from 2,
to a higher number. IE 18 or 24 shields for a warlord.

True, bigger weapons, would do more damage. But, thats the nature
of big weapons, more damage.

And yes, the Plasma Annihilator is a powerfull weapon, fully charged, it
would hit with an average of 3 shots, for 16 shields reduced. Hey, it's
a 2250pt Imperator for Pete's sake. It should do some hefty damage!

With the system we have now, 9 Devestators (on the average), will
completely reduce a Warlords shields to 0. Then the big boys open up
and finish the job.

At least, with my new superdooper shield system, bigger weapons would
have to be used to reduce shields. And it's SIMPLE.
