Potentially nasty... but personally I like a bit more variation, if only because it's unfluffy to have a "matching" court.

I'd go for two Scorpian exarchs with Scorpians Claws, 2 banshees with executioners, and a swooping hawk with a power weapon and sustained assault.

I think I'd go with Dire Avengers and a couple of Striking Scorpions myself, but Delightfully Emo your Court seems pretty nasty, against certain targets at least.

Who will you be playing against army-wise?

i'd rather stay away from the large fire magnet that can't FoF and can potentially be ignored and avoided until turn 5.

There is only one problem with taking a Court of Exarchs, ad that is that is MUST be accompanied by an Avatar. Sometimes taking the whole Court can get expensive pointswise and moneywise. Not to mension that the Avatar has NO long ranged abilities, which can really screw you until you get into close combat. And I think everybody can agree that the Court will be a firepower magnet, which is also not helping. I do have a Biel-Tan craftworld, and still probably will take the Court of Exarchs, but heed the posibilities of what could happen if you take them.

The Court of the Young King is a risky investment. In cc - it destroys anything but there is a risk that it could become a huge points sink if it's destroyed in the shooting phase. I've never used one because I've never used Biel-Tan army but if i did i would definitely use a fire dragon exarch for a bit of vital firepower - and a farseer with fortune to divert as much firepower as possible.
