    What part isn't clear? If it specifically stats "ignores shields",
doesn't it then ignore shields? Not only does it ignore shields, it
"makes a mockery of even the heaviest armour and shields as it passes
straight through". You'd think they actually thought ahead with this
weapons when they then proceeded to put out the dragsta, power, knight,
and Ordinatus shields.
    Now if only my Titans would survive when I move them in range of all
enemy fire... :( It's not that great a weapon unless I buy a Phantom
Titan Legion to help draw fire off of the Warlock Titan first. But then
the majority of my points are going to Titans, and then I run the risk
of just coughing up about 25 VPs when facing one-shots or sufficient
amounts of artillery, which I also can't do anything about until turn 2
or 3....
    Oh well. At least I don't have to worry about stuff like
Crystalline body to cancel out Pulsars, and having Warlocks and Warlock
Titans taken over with the Chaos player gone.
