The deal with the warlock in the wraithguard squad is I cannot decide which psychic power would benifit them the most
so am looking for some help.
I am also looking for suggestions for my army list overall.

Wow...that's a lot of rangers.

Firstly - why has the farseer got guide. Most of your army hits on a 2+! Give it fortune and stick it near to the wraithguard (did I also mention - give the warlock conceal.)

Split the ranger squads up into 6 squads of four. It makes them harder to take out as one squad can only target one thing (and you can split them up more) and you get three extra roles on the disruption table - you'll need them.

Ok, your army is all slow (nothing fast in there) and it mostly consists of one off 'anti character' weapons - ranger long rifles and bright lances and wraithcannons. There's nothing simple anti infantry there. Of course the sheer amount of 'rifles might pin the infantry but that's risky. Starcannons/EMS/scatter lasers on the wraithlords would be nice but then you don't have any long ranged anti vehicle weaponry... :-\

With the ten possible rolls on the disruption table you'll have to use them very carefully. Use reserves and pinning to ensure that you can concentrate your force on one part of his army at a time until that's wiped out - then move on to the rest - while the rest of his force is busy being pinned/coming in from reserve. An alaitoc force should cause great disruption on the enemy - which is why some fast attack really would be nice to come in and strike hard and take advantage of the enemy's disorganisation...

the reason for guide was for the wraith guard so they could re-roll the misses. only because i could use all the wraith cannon hits i can get.

I am open to any suggestions for fast attack and will re write my list for more anti troop/vehicle

Swooping hawks would work well against certain armies such as Tau and IG. Sudden;t have them come in and cause mayhem on an already disorganised force. However they would be waste against power armour armies IMO.

Vypers would also work well I think if you tool them up with anti infantry weaponry - upgrade the cannon to a starcannon/EMS/scatter laser and upgrade the catapults to a cannon. If you had at least 2, perhaps even 3 that could cause devastation - but you would have to replace quite a few rangers though...

Interesting list. Here is what I use for Alaitoc at 1500

Hq
Farseer, Jetbike,SS,Fortune+runes of warding(whatever ones are 5pnt)/Ghosthelm

Troops
(Rangers 5)
(Rangers 5)
Rangers 5
Rangers 5


Elites
Pathfinders 5
Pathfinders 5
Warpspiders 10, Exh withdraw

Fast Attack
Swooping Hawk /w/ Exarch, WoS/Sp + Sus. Assult
Swooping Hawk /w/ Exarch, WoS/Sp + Sus. Assult

Heavy

Falcon, HF, SC, SS


Rangers tie things up and pick out targets thining them down. Warpspiders are there to have some mobility with shooting. Swooping hawks are my watchdog squard to protect my rangers should the enemy reach HtH. Falcon provides a target, I sometimes use a wraithlord and add some vypers, but I find the falcon usually lasts longers as a fire magnet and thats 90% of what my wraithlords are.
