Ok this a simple one which is in your opionion the best anti-tank vehicle that Eldar have?
Wave Serpent, hands down. Falcons are useless, like I said in the other thread, and while Fire Prisms can be used to destroy tanks, they can potentially miss and are generally much better at taking down infantry of any kind. Which is not to say they are bad at anti-tank by any means, since they can very much be used for that with their long range and S9/10. For my armies the bulk of my anti-tank is made up of Wave Serpents armed with EMLs and sometimes Fire Dragons.
Really i would think a falcon is a good anti tank. 2 shots with the pulse laser, at 9 strength. Then put an EML, and dont move that turn. With 6 dragons inside just in case.
Pulse laser's only strength 8 though.
But yea, it has to be the Fire Prism. That's its job. Waveserpents need to be moving too much to be too reliable at anti tank.
Don't you think 6 Fire Dragons in a Falcon with an EML is a little bit overkill?
The trouble with Falcons is that they use up a Heavy Support slot, and the real clincher is that they are not nearly as survivable as Wave Serpents. Really your Heavy Support should be filled with Fire Prisms and Nightspinners, except in 1000pt games where you don't have the room.
Yeah, I find you've gotta build a list around it to really work out. I've proxied 4, each with pulse lasers. 2 squads of 2. They're super expensive, but they absolutely demolish tanks!
the hardest hitter isnt even mentioned here in the poll. war walkers. but my vote would be for fire prisms
