Hi Travis!

You've asked some very good questions. I think Peter is the rules
expert, and questions 1 and 5 would be best answered by him, or one of
the other "Old Guard".

Question 2: I recently got a copy of Titan Legions, and also admired
the titan/knight crew experience. There is some discussion, in the
group that I play with, to use experience. Personally, as long as you
can't buy it, I think it's great. NetEpic has no rules for this, at the

Question 3: I have no experience with them. But I am slightly negative
towards the idea.

Question 4: Maybe some of the "Old Timers" can help you out here?

Question 6: I like the idea of another Close Combat weapon for Eldar
titans, but I don't think increasing thier CAF is the best way to do
this. I think that a high CAF, combined with thier high rate of
unrestricted movement, would be too powerfull. I think the Neural Lash
is more in keeping with Eldar ways, but perhaps too powerfull as well.
I see no reason why Eldar titans couldn't use the same lance carried by
an Eldar knight, however. On a titan, it would be quite powerfull, when
combined with the titans normal CAF, speed, agility, and toughness.

Good Post!
