This reminds me of Chaos vs Eldar/IG game I played a while back. The
Eldar player was so confident about the invulnerability of his precious
warlock titan he advanced it right into the midst of his allies
vindicator company. In first fire in turn 1 I opened up on the titan
with 3 Cannons of Khorne (I had 3 units of them) the first shot landed
square on the titan with 10BPs, hit the reactor and blew the titan to pieces.
My Eldar opponent was not impressed. Nor was his IG ally as the explosion
broke his vindicators (saving from the rear or side).
