I tend to have horrendously good luck with mine, so they are pretty deadly
when I use them. But under the Adeptus Titanicus rules they were really
hard to use effectively. They were like a big cannonball filled with as
much explosive as they could fit. They'd roll for a while (not doing much
damage) after they landed, but when they stopped they let of a pretty deadly
explosion. The only way you could hurt a Titan was if it had no shields
left or if you got it to roll to a stop perfectly between its legs PAST the
shields. Then it went off and the shields held the blast in! The Titan was
basically dead, but it was really hard to do (saw this happen ONCE and never
again). But then in those days you could set Titans & Gargants for
self-destruct, you could play boarding actions on Gargants, you could buy
orbital barrages.........
