With and eldar missile launcher equipped can you choose whether you shoot krak or plasma during the game depending on the situation, or must you choose one when you equip it and use that for the duration?
You have access to both for the duration of the game, you pick based on the situation and must declare before firing. Both missile types are included in unit costs so are effectively free.
Go missile something!

alright thats what i thought, but some people werent sure, thank you
While there's an EML post up, what do people think about using EMLs now, considering the new rules regarding Blast template weapons?
I'm currently playtesting to see how they fare. My Eldar army used quite alot of EMLs, but I can see myself replacing most or maybe all of these.
Scattering is the greatest thing ever! My local gw (Bolton) can't get enough of it aparently. Frag missiles are being used much more often - though probably because of the abundance of cover vs krak and the lack of partial hits. 5th ed also revived the flamer template, but I don't know why =l.
Anyway, even loosing a 'to-hit' roll, all eml strike reaper exarchs will direct hit only sightly less often, with, say, only 1 in 5 complete misses - assuming a large enough formation to justify fragging (or in the eml's case, plasma...ising them). And even or reapers, 2d6-bs averges 1.5" scatter. And you don't get any cover for drawing los over/through units and terrain against template weapons.
But I can kinda see your concern. But imo, practice-wise they got a lot better. No partials means more hits.
So, I still put eml near the top of my 'eldar shooty bits' lst =)
Flamers got revived because of the Cover saves that are being handed out like candy now. I have always loved flamers--auto-hits 1/2-2/3s the squad, no cover save allowed? Yes please!
5th? Cool. WotLK? Also cool.
I agree- famers, especially heavy ones, are awesome. Most of my lists have atleast 1, and I see what you mean about cover saves, I never really thoughtof that. The sm ap3 flamer will be nasty...
