Hi Peter,

Excellent, we are in agreement.

One issue left, as far as I'm concerned. I can pretty much live with
your Plasma Cannon idea. But I would eliminate the reduced CAF for the
Plasma Destructor. If we want to encourage titan close combat, this
weapon would be a death sentence to any titan in hand to hand. My games
tend to be very mobile. The last time I played, I lost a Reaver to a
Warhound with a close combat weapon. Good move on my opponents part,
and a calculated risk. Titans without the electrohull, will be attacked
by infantry/tanks without mercy. But this is like the "old" rules, and
I can live with that. A ballanced trade off.

Also, I'd like the titan to have the ability to turn the electrohull
off, when desired, for a turn. Sometimes this can be advantagous, if
you would default to the CAF + 2 die.

I assume that all other races use some form of electrohull.

Good ideas Peter!

Warprat ;)
