To be honest I didn't think that it ignored shields but as the eldar player was
losing I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

So if it hits an unshielded titan the titan is destroyed if it doesn't have a 1+
save somewhere, but otherwise it is forced to move.
I've heard people say that if a unit is on first fire it counts as being unable
to move and so is auto destroyed, is this correct?
I see a big difference between something that cannot possibly move eg. something
affected by psychic lock, and something that is simply choosing not to move.
We've always played that if something is on first fire and is forced to move
then unless it is explicitly stated otherwise it still fires in the FF phase.

It doesn't include anything about Doomweavers, but I suppose those rules could
be used. Someone else said it does a hit with a -6 save modifier on the top of
the Imperator, but I don`t see why the Imperator should take that kind of damage
when a battle titan gets off scot free due to a 1+ save somewhere.

What then happens if a titan is hit by a D-cannon, if it has active shields it
is displaced, but what if it doesn't, we simply played that it takes automatic
damage on one location under the template, (rolling for deviation as normal).

I know it's probably a bad idea to take titans against eldar, but they look so
cool, and anyway our eldar player is not all that good.

What would other people take instead of a Warlord battlegroup?
I was thinking of;
        Shadow Sword Company 500 pts
        Storm Hammer 200 pts
        Artillary Company 600 pts
        Deathstrike Battery 250 pts
                                       1550 pts
Does this seem like a good alternative, bearing in mind that the Warlords are
usually used as fire support for Marines.
