        The plastic holder bit looks pretty silly, IMHO. And
yeah, the Warlord looks mighty strange if you just stick the
weapons in the arm mounts as is (and that's not even possible
for the Reaver/Warhound sized weapons). My solution (for the
1 Warlord I've actually had the time to put together) was to
make my own 'holder bits' - 1 for a volcano cannon, right arm
(the top of the corvus assault pod & a short length of tubing)
and 1 for a turbo-laser destructor, left arm (the top half of
the reaver chain fist). Once I decide how to arm my other 2
Warlords I'll have to come up with conversions for them, too.
Time consuming? Yeah, but it looks damn good.

        No contest - Chainfist. The Powerfist is THE most
useless titan weapon around.
