While the description of war walkers talks about energy fields, in game terms simply translates into the walkers not counting as open-topped. Strength 9+ hits affect them normally.
"Drop emergency bulkheads! Activate compression rams! Set internal bracing! Issue brace for impact alert! I repeat, brace for impact!"
I thought it was odd in the new codex that they didn't actually have holofields as a wargear option, but I guess not having them count as open-topped does make them a little bit more survivable than, say, a snotling carrying a basket of eggs.
All that said, I still have 4 of them!
