I'm leaning towards that idea. I was thinking I could use it as a
scenario/objective. Put the destroyed Titan in the middle of the board
and award an extra 5-10 vp to the first army that can hold the objective
(with one stand touching the Titan/head) for two turns. Maybe say that
even then you don't get the points until you carry a piece off the board
