Trev would probably be able to help you out more then I can, but I think that your Troop choices are a bit to dis-concentrated :P. And maybe too few in number. There aren't that many considering your total comes out to 1880 for the whole list. I'd suggest throwing some more Troops in the mix.

I don't think your Fire Dragon falcon needs the bright lance, the dragons will do just fine drop-n-pop antitank work, and you will usually be moving, so only get 1 weapon shot anyways. They come with a pulse laser, may as well use that, and let your Dragons pop the tanks.

Starcannon in guardian squad is bad. Give them a scatterlaser. It averages out almost the same amount of kills vs. MEQ but is far more useful against hordes and light vehicles (and they can actually hit with it).

I think tankhunters is kind of overkill for Dragons. In my experience a basic squad of five does just fine melting pretty much anything you point it at (the problem is surviving the counter fire). I do like the firepike, increases their threat range.

A few trims on your falcons weapons, dumping the 'tankhunters' and losing the starcannon on the guardians could get you some points for more troops.

I second what Guitardian said. In addition though, I'm not certain if its worth keeping those BL's on your Waveserpent. You have TONS of anti-tank in this list with the Autarch, Fire Dragons, two Falcons, Warp Spiders and Vypers that those BL's are just over kill. Swap them for a Starcannon and help tear up whatever your Avengers are shooting at. If you are looking at fixin up your troops you could make the guardians you have count as Avengers and toss those bad boys a Waveserpent.
