I didn't think the Wave Serpent could push Titans. I though they were too
big to be moved. I haven't read the WS description for YEARS so I could be

Too true

Anything with a save of 1+ is safe from Doomweaver webs so if a Titan with a
1+ save on the foot was pushed into the template I'd say it is safe, if it
has a 2+ save or worse, well....... better left unsaid.

Well we've always played it that you roll for scatter and if you go up, you
miss as they can only hit bottom row templates. This has never been a real
problem as they have only been used on my Gargants to hit the Belly Gun and
shake my vunerables off, eh Jase? Very stimulating, but in the end it's
dangerous and sends you blind :-). Never seen them used on an Imperial
Titan before.
