Big models were once a novelty or fine centre piece to an army, now a must have item for even small games, not a bad thing completely but really taking thinking out of the game, "...grunt bring big shooty thing...grunt..win"

Further rumors were listed that this guy will be modular, with other shoulder weapon options and possibly other arm options also. It will actually come pre-built with magnet holes.

While I won't be getting the model it's this part that interests me. I also read somewhere the Mastodon has something similar.

What I read was that the stats weren't finalized. There was talk of modular weaponry, like I said. The Ion cannons of course will probably be similar to the Riptide, but with higher volume of shots. The SUPER guns are probably ordinance, but there are two shoulder mounts (that 3-piece gun uses both mounts and stretches across the back). There's talk of massive missile pods, AND an arm-mounted giant missile launcher as well.

Burst Cannons will probably be point defense, and smart missiles are smart missiles.

And how many of us didn't think Tau would go in this direction with Super-Heavy Walkers and Titans? I guess anything is possible nowdays. I think I see on the horizon a new Tyranid Bio-titan and a Dark Eldar Knight-sized Cronus Engine or a Super-Heavy grotesque.
