Actually reading the chaos list is really difficult to understand that the
two titans (banelord & lord of battle) have fixed armaments, infact reading
the titans description you read: pag.15 lord of battle: it follow the
purchasing rules for titan weaponery except that the hull firethrowers and
the head cannon...
Banelord also pag.15: the abomination can be fitted with tail weapons in
addition to the normal 4 weapons mounts....also for it you find its card
hollow, while for fixed configuration titans this is compiled, so I suppose
the exact contrary. I suspect that when the net epic chaos list was
done you decided to grant the modularity weapons purchease for them, else I
can't understand these "bugs"; for me a bug can be a to hit number changed
(i.e. hellhounds to hit that in the description is 4+, while in the table is
5+), but not in this case.

They can because in the summary table this weapon can be fitted in the
warlord and also on reavers, see the code WR.

I agree with you concerning "uber.models", but I can't immagine that the
mainstay of imperial/chaos titans is so weak, at least for its cost,
specially when the rever class is so good.
