Welcome to Librarium Online!
hey im only just getting back into my alaitoc army. well here goes my list
Autarch - Swooping Hawk Wings, Mandiblasters, Power weapon.
Farseer - Doom, Guide, Spirit Stones, Runees of Witnessing
8 Striking Scorpions - Exarch with Scorpions Claw, Shadowstrike, Stalker
6 Fire Dragons - Exarch with Firepike, Crak Shot, Tank Hunters
136 (Mounted in Falcon)
10 Guardians - Missile Launcher
Warlock - Conceal
10 Dire Avengers - Exarch with Power weapon and Shimmershield, Bladestorm
Wave Serpent - TL Starcannons, Star Engines
Falcon - Scatterlaser
TOTAL - 1748
Autarch will jumpjet around and support units that get into combat.
Farseer will sit with guardian squad and guide the missile launcher and doom any unit that gets close to my lines.
Fire Dragons will do wat they do best and go tank hunting with the falcon.
Striking Scorpions will either infiltrate and get close to the enemy or sit in cover near my lines to charge any units that get doomed by my farseer.
Rangers and pathfinders will sit in cover sniping and pinning units as best as they can.
Dire Avengers in hte waveserpent will scoot around the table helping out anywhere they can by shooting and charging into combat.
Falcon will go tank busting with the fire dragons.
Basically it is a fairly shooty army but with a few units that can look out for combat and charge in.

Vypers sucked with brightlances in the last codex, and I still don't see a good reason for using them now. Vypers have low BS which means to get the most out of them you need to have them using hgih rate of fire weapons. Vypers are not meant to hunt vehicles, there are many other units within the eldar warhost that do it far better and more efficiently. Right now I feel jipped by vypers so I don't reccomend using them at all, but this is my personal preference.
As to helping you, well what do you want out of your army? assualty? shooty? static? mobile? if you provide us with more information on your playstyle and army list choices it would be easier for us to offer you advice about your list.

We bring only death, and leave only carrion. It is a message even a Human can understand.
Autarch- Are you going to choose your last weapon for him?
Fire Dragons- why crack shot?
You falcon could be alot better with holo fields and vectored engines...
i didnt bother choosing a 2 handed weapon for my autarch as he will be supporting units that r in combat mostly.
i gave my fire dragon exarch crack shot cuz i had like 7pts left over and saw that and just added it on at the last moment
and yes my falcon could be better but i didnt have an extra 55pts or so for those upgrades.
if u think that anything can get removed from the list to add them then let me no wat u think.
cheers for the advice
Drop the autarch wings, add a fusion gun or shuriken catapult.
Elites, I would consider dropping 1 squad of scorpions for 1 squad of banshees.
I'd give the wave serpent to 1 of ur CC elites and put the farseer or autarch in it with them.
Troops, you have way to many rangers/pathfinders I would drop to 2 squads of 5 if you want to frield so many, I know it is your theme, but still...i dont beleive they are good enough to soak up that many points.
HS, give yourself vectored engines, holofields and spirit stones. You can acheive this by dropping some of those rangers/pathfinders.

You dont need the exarch in your firedragons squad, the extra range from the firepike isnt needed when they are getting dropped off by a falcon, and you dont need the tankhunters skill since the fusion gun has been improved, and as said earlier, the crack shot skill isnt needed either.
I'd almost say either give the Autarch a fusion gun as well or drop him completely. There are only two autarchs that are worth their points in my book. An autarch with wings, p.weapon, and a fusion gun for combat support and random tankhunting, or an autarch on a bike with a laserlance to join some shining spears.
I think that your troops are fine, nice and fluffy for Alaitoc
Dropping the fire dragon exarch alone nets you 40 points to go towards making your tanks more survivable. If you choose to drop the autarch then you can kit out the Wave serpent and Falcon to be nice and survivable.
Or you could drop your ranger squads to 8 each instead of dropping the Autarch. if you do that you have 116 pts to improve your tanks.
This is what I would do with your list.
Swooping Hawk Wings
Runes of Witnessing
8 Striking Scorpions
Exarch with Scorpions Claw
6 Fire Dragons
Warlock - Conceal
10 Dire Avengers
Exarch with Power weapon and Shimmershield
Scatterlaser and Upgraded Shuricannon
This brings you to 1727 pts, I would also suggest getting defend on your Dire Avenger exarch just in case they get charged after bladestorming. Or you could get the Spirit stones back on your farseer, though I think it is uneccesary.
