Eldar Missile Launcher
What is in your opinion the best Eldar heavy weapon?
For me I'm split right down the middle between EMLs and Scatter Lasers. They both are so versatile and their weaknesses and strengths seem to cancel each other out.
I'm actually the same (split between EML and scatter), but I figured I'd choose EML as I'm thinking I'll use this more often in 5th. We'll see how that pans out. =)
I completely agree. I'm torn between the scatter laser and the EML. If the bright lance were AP 1 (which it totally should be), it might actually have a chance. As it stands, a one shot tank busting weapon that doesn't get the +1 to the damage role is just sort of a joke. Strength 6 is my favorite kind of weaponry, but the EML works so well on a serpent.
Does anyone know the logic as to why Bright Lances cost more that EMLs?
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
GW decided that all the AP2 weaponry should be horridly expensive.
Then they decided they'd give everything 4+ cover saves.
On topic though, I went with the EML. Being able to shoot a plasma missile on the move adds a little extra punch to my falcons, and a barrage of six from my war walkers leaves only small bits and pieces behind.
I think you need to spend more time on your floor.

Personal preference EML for their flexibility, but I also take six scatter lasers on my war walkers.
Missile launcher... Move 'n shoot a plasma missile, stationary and destroy a transport. The superior flexibility owns. Scatterlaser's high strength and rate of fire is good, too, but just not the right one for me
I'm a big fan of scatter lasers, and use EMLs over lance since it seems everything that has 14 armor has a way of negating lance weapons anyways so I just rock EMLs because they're cheaper.
I voted EML though I havnt used one yet. I think they are the most flexible weapon around and since it has the little lower AP on the plasma part of it makes it even a little better. I do use bright lances as there are numerous land raiders in my area for some reason and I see it as necessary to have a couple in the army.
