overall, the starcannon is more versatile. although it is unable to penetrate heavier targets. the bright lance will suffer unless it's bs4 or guided.. i don't think there is any "best" more depending what you're trying to do with it, but overall i'd say the starcannon is a better all round choice.

Gotta be the starcannon for me.. anything you'd need a brightlance for my firedragons sort out.

+I fight daemonhunters a lot (a pure grey knights army) and there's nothing better than seeing the look on your opponant's face when 5 starcannons open up on his mighty Grey Knight Termis with grandmaster that have just popped out of the landraider crusader the Firedragons erased

That must be a good feeling

twas a wonderful feeling until a Purgation squad turned up with 4 incinerators and wiped out all the firedragons in one turn (and went on to destroy nearly everythinbg that was left of my army in a series of the jammiest dice rolls the world has ever seen.. a purgation squad and a dreadnaught Vrs most of an eldar army 1500 pts.. and they nearly bloody won!)

it totally depends on the situation...facing a landraider? pack 2 bright lances or one on a WL. facing termies or marines or anything other than a tank? go w/ the starcannon. usually i try to have 1 or 2 BLs in my army, with every other gun either a SC or an EML.

I prefer the bright-lance but if theres a bunch of infantry, the starcannons the way to go.

I'm afraid you can't compare these guns because both have different roles on the battlefield.

The bright lance is a perfect tank killer while the starcannon is a great infantry killer. If you find that your army is short of anti tank weapons then choose the bright lance. If however it's short of anti infantry weapons then choose the starcannon.
