Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was just wondering what people thought was a better tank
I know the falcon has potentially better guns etc but by the time you have given it holo fields its 60 points more
If it came with holo fields basic i would say thats a good match up but right now the falcon just seems to expensive for what it does
Well Wave Serpents are generally better. They have bigger transport capacity,a twin-linked weapon which is as good as the BS3 shoots from the Falcon (or even better), cheaper and the energy fields are generally better than the holofields. I don't say that Falcon are useless but have become less popular nowdays as they can easily replaced by Prisms and Serpents.
See the pool for more advice
Wave Serpents are better. Their shields make them durable, maybe not as durable as Falcons but falcons will likely spend the whole time shaken/stunned, the wave Serpents shield at least try to prevent glancing/pen hits. Better transport capacity in the wave serpent as well.
If you'r going to take a falcon in is for long range support, not fast advances on enemy lines. Putting a small 5 man squad to make it scoring is okay, but thats if its just sitting back on a home objective. Wave Serpents are better at quickly approaching the enemy lines, and if kitted out right are cheaper since your not going to be firing them all that often anyway since half the time their going to be running round the table at full pelt to gain cover saves.
Hi, Wave serpents. Bye.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
Agreed on Waveserpents for all the given reasons, plus they don't take up a FOC slot allowing you to take Prisms and War Walkers.
