Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright, I know that the two most effective ways to arm your falcons depends on what you're facing (starcannon for meqs and termies, scatterlaser for everything else) but I was wondering which you thought would be more effective for a tournement setting, when you really don't know what you'll be facing. I'm inclined to think starcannon with the shuricannon upgrade. It's 10 more points, but since falcons are really now the only effective place to mount starcannons, I think it would be nice to have them in case of meqs or tmcs. Your thoughts?
Me persoanlly, I would go for the star cannon and shur cannon. I love being able to move 12" and fire off seven str 6 or more shots not to mention that four of those are ap2. It makes your falcon a little more expensive but its well worth it in my experience.
I would definately use a Star Cannon and a Holofield. If you have the points add the Shuriken Catapult and Spirit Stones too.
There's always too many MEQs around, so AP2 is the way to go.
It depends if you use them as transports of primarily for fire support. If for transport, keep them with scatter lasers and holo-fields and spirit stones, as they will often not get to shoot due to being shaken.
Otherwise, go all out.
