Welcome to Librarium Online!
Is the Falcon Grav Tank's pulse laser an effective anti-tank weapon, or do your really need brightlances, ELM's, and fusion guns?
One line answer: Yes, only against vehicles less that AV14. So BL are needed if your facing LR/Russes..
Speaking of armor, what do Eldar folks do about liths?
Do you find the prism cannon to be any more worthwhile against heavy armor than the pulse laser? I've never seen anyone use a fire prism...are they cheap or is it just not worth the points?

The fire prism is essentially just a lascannon with a 12" increased range, at the price of at least 115 points. Eventhougt they get to use a template vs. infantry, they are still not worth half of the price they cost, plus the model itself is not very good either. People that dont know muct about eldar seems to fear them for some reason, and waste some heavy weapon fire on them, thats the only thing they are good for.
Vs. liths, there is just not much to do. Shower the damn thing with PLs, BLs and EMLs, and hope for a 6... gotta htae liths :phear:
Oh a D-cannon is the way to go versus liths....don't forget they have a 24" range too.
A d-cannon is basically W2 T3 5+ very heavy weapon... It will be dead long before it gets within reach of the lith, unless ofcourse the lith deepstrikes right next to it, in which case your d-can crew will be shot. To get back on topic (sort of), two falcons with pulse lasers, be able to rain 2-6 S8 shots down on its a lith from a fair distance, and will eventually damage it. That is the best way I konw to shoot those annoying chunks of living metal, although I know it is not wery good. I hope that our new dex will provide us some fieldable S9+ weapons...
Speaking of liths, does anyone know wether or not the WLs powerfists count as S10 against a lith, or does the living metal rule render the WL useless?
