Is taking 1 fire prism worth it or should sub for a wave serpent? I am trying to do a well balanced list. I only have room for 1 prism at best. thanks in advance.
I find even 1 prism to be nice, you still get strong small blast and an option for a large blast. If it is just comparing a serpent to a fireprism i go prism, but what would you be putting in the wave serpent? Being able to move infantry around is very helpful.
My basic list for a 1500 is:
dire avengers 10x
guardians 20x scatter lazer
war walkers scatter lazers 3x
fire prism 1x
scorpions on foot without infiltrate are a no no. or downgrade the sctter lasers to shuri cannons and you get enough for exarch + infiltrate ability or take the serpent
ps what guns you have on your serpents? seems you are lacking AT

Both BL's and scropions do have inflitrate and a pclaw.
i was under the impression that a single prism didn't operate that well on it's own.. However Barrage weapon vehicles that don't need LOS are good by themselves i.e. basilisks, whirlwinds

Prisms are good on their own, just better in pairs. sometimes I dont even link my shots. So I can shoot twice. But I take 3 and call it a night!
But if thats ur 1500 pt list, looks fine to me, stick that doom seer with your banshees.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
I'd disagree about running a single Fire Prism, but, looks like I'd be outnumbered in saying so, so go for it. Its a powerful shot either way, but at 1500, people are going to see it, and rightly so, as a threat.
I'd personally take another serpent, throw some EMLS on there and you won't lose out on much versatility.
Sweet double post
I usually only take single Prisms at 1k, as at higher points values I can fit in the mandatory 2 Avengers Squads, the Fire Dragon squad, my Farseer, and the Wave Serpents for all three and have room for the 2nd Prism as well.
