I pressume that this is a 2nd Ed question...

The void shields/doomweaver thing is a contentious issue. The most likely
interpretation based on what is written in the rules is that doomweaver
templates ignore void shields. But you don't check a location on the titan
- if the titan has a 1+ save anywhere on its template it automatically steps
out from under the doomweaver template. If it has no 1+ save, then there is
a 50/50 chance that the titan steps out, or is (totally) destroyed.

Impirators are a special case. Anything that ordinarily moves a figure (and
we assume that this includes doomweavers) causes a save at -1 to any
location of the attacker's choice (you'll find that somewhere in TL - if you
can't, write back and I'll dig it out...)

>Oh and what kind of fire arc do troops on board an Imperator have?

I've always assumed 360 degree, but I'm prepared to be contradicted.
