If using a farseer w/doom mirror blades, if not using a farseer w/doom executioner, triskele, my opinion is still out on it.
P.S. you should always give the exarch one of the first 2 weapons, otherwise you'd be wasting points upgrading for 1A and 1WS/BS.

We bring only death, and leave only carrion. It is a message even a Human can understand.
EDIT: I've changed my mind again.
Well, what are the advantages/disadvantages of each?
Triskele: (+) Good ranged attack, power weapon
Triskele: (-) Loses fleet
M.Swords: (+) + Attack, power weapon
M.Swords: (-) Loses shooting
Executioner: (+) + Strength, power weapon
Executioner: (-) Uses both hands
Losing fleet is bad, and I don't think I would need the advantage of more strength; it's only 1 strong hit. So mirrorswords for me!

Whoooooops, i wont do it again .
Thanks, the trikele sounds good. Does it replace the power weapon?
Triskele means no Fleet. Only bad thing I can think of.
With Triskele you probably won't use it anyways, since they would fleet the majority of the time. The only Triskele that I would consider is Jain Zar's, but her other stats aren't good enough.
I like the Mirror Sword. 5 Attacks on a charge is goooood. I will almost always fleet anyways, and I wouldn't throw Banshees into something with more than T4 or less than 3+ Sv.
Executioner looks good on paper but it doesn't quite match the squad's weapons, who are more important than one Exarch.
I hate to throw in the non powergamer perspective here...
but I got the new banshees in the post yesterday, and that banshee exarch with mirrorswords model is just too cool to not use!
The regular banshees are nice too, although the asses are a bit "0_o"
It all depends on what you like more.
Personally i like to kepp my option of fleet open so no triskle for me. Though it would be a cool weapon i would rather take the other ones.
The mirrorswords will give aditionel attacks and woith doom this can be a killer.
As someone that thinks glaives are cool weapons i find it hard to ignore the executioner. With the added S it makes wounding more easy but you loose some attacks.
I personally think i will go with the morror swords. having lots of attacks aalways makes me feel good and the model rocks to.
Maybe i will keep the executioner around for some nice conversions.
Hope it helps
