Hmm - Conceal isn't useful to a Seer Council as they already have 4+ Invulnerable saves, right? Don't you need more Warlocks anyway? 3 minimum I thought.

The Falcon can't have a Scatter Laser and a Brightlance. It can have a Shuriken Cannon and a Brightlance though. I think Falcons are best used with at least Spirit Stones and a Holofield, these upgrades make them extremely survivable.

The Fire Dragons might be better used as a squad of 5+Exarch that can ride in the Falcon, this will allow them to get close to the enemy more quickly.

No i dont think you can. The picture does show the falcon with two weapons thats because it already comes with a pulse laser. Also the quote from the eldar book states under the weapons catagory.
twin-linked shurikan catatpults, pulse laser and one weapon from the following list.....

The wording implies that only one weapon may be chosen

yeah, spirit stones and holofeild are a must for ur falcon.

IMO, pulse laser (one of the best yet most underestimated eldar waepons), scatter laser/starcannon (depending on ur enemy), holofeild and spirit stones.

3 warlocks, and 2 farseers i think u mean. And make sure one of ur farseers have fortune, makes the unit rock hard. Drop the conceal as said earlier. 2 warlocks leading the guardians with conceal really improves their chances of survival, but its a matter of opinion.

Never used warp spiders, interesting choice...

If used properly Spiders are really good, that seer council is wacked, 2 seers,3warlocks-enhance+fortune and mindwaror eldtrich storm would be better.

make sure the 'lord has a starcannon, giev the vyper a starcannon to make up for its low BS w/ increased rate of fire.

The pulse laser is slightly longer then the standard bright lance and yep, it is 3 Warlock minimum in a council. Conceal isn't entirely redundant on a Council since stuff like psycannons ignore Invulnerable. At least with Conceal you still get a cover save verses psycannons, but against anything else, their pretty useless.
