Default New Fire Prism coming out soon

Two weeks ago, I got a Fire Prism, and This has a missing item, so I called GW to replace it, then the customer service dude told me, and he told me he cannot replace it for me , and he asked me what do I want to replace it? what do you guys think Falcon or Wraithlord? I assume GW will release a new Fire Prism.

It's already known. Check here.

And you might as well see the Night Spinner too.

In response to what you should get instead. I say Wraithlord. This is based on nothing but my own bias and the fact that I really like them though.

Damn, and I just bought a fire prism too...Though I have to say I am not really impressed with the new fire prism design. What is up with the main cannon on that thing?

The Night Spinner looks awesome though.

That is one funky looking fire prism, don't know what to think of it. Night spinner if going to be another heavy slot by the looks of the two big ol' guns its sporting (know nothing about the thing, I'll sniff around for some). Straining an already busting heavy support section, so many good choices, so little room.

All discussion on the actual new Fire Prism should probably be confined to the rumours section, but as far as I know there's not a thread on the FP specifically.

A Wraithlord might be the better option if you can get one, as they're a nasty Close Combat unit too, but on the other hand a Falcon can carry a small, nasty Close Combat unit inside itself, moves faster, but can be very random on surviving compared to the Wraithlord IMO. I presume your Prism was for the fire support role though, and neither Falcon or Wraithlord really fill that role like a Prism does for the sheer range and power it has. Really, what would fit best with the rest of your army?

I m using them as an anti-tank heavy support, on the other hand, i have 3 walker w/scatter laser to against troops, but I do have a bad time to against SM, or may be my dice failed so bad.

Well the scatter laser walkers should provide all the heavy anti infantry you need. Pity the dice are being finicky.

If anti tank is what your army is lacking a falcon can be good:
It has a 2X S8 shots base, add a brightlance to that and you have a pretty scary anti tank platform.
It could carry 6 dragons inside, pretty much the kings tank killing.

Wraithlord I see as more of a protector. has long range shooting that is accurate (relatively) with 2 flamers can clean swarms that attack high value targets close by. With T8 can tarpit many enemies that have high attacks low strength, assault marines, lightning claws. Plant a wraithlord somewhere, perhaps near pathfinders or dark reapers and the enemy might want to rethink his assault plan. Combat is OK, but low amount of attacks leads to usually 1.5 kills a turn, nothing incredible.

So offense or defense?
