Default 1850 - Craftworld Eldar Semi-Competitive (No Jetbikes)

Ok so I've started looking at building an army list for Caledonian Revolution in July and I've got 1850pts to play with. My restrictions are:
Quote:
‘Come the Apocalypse’ Alliances can be made and Special (Unique) Characters will be allowed.
You may select 0-1 Super Heavy Vehicle or Gargantuan Monstrous Creature per army UNLESS the Detachment comprises completely of Super Heavy Vehicles or Gargantuan Monstrous Creatures.
Forge World is NOT permitted.
Only battle forged armies may be taken.
You may form your force from a maximum of 4 detachments. These can be any combination of detachments or formations as permitted by the main rules.
The new ‘super formations’ like Craftworld Warhosts and Necron and The Adeptus Mechanicus War Convocation all count as a single Detachment for the limit of 4.
The only other thing to bear in mind is that I do not own even a single Eldar Jetbike. (I have 3 Vypers though) - I know - Crazyness! Who'd take Eldar without Windriders these days.... *cough* that'd be me then.....

The list I'm looking at right now is below, I'd appreciate any constructive feedback, I want it to be at least semi-competitive whilst retaining some fluffyness haha.

Craftworld Warhost Detachment:

Guardian Battlehost:
Farseer - (Singing Spear) 105
10 Guardians - (free weapon [Eldar Missilie Launcher]) - 90
Transport1 Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Lasers 115
10 Guardians - (free weapon [Eldar Missilie Launcher]) - 90
Transport2 Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Lasers 115
10 Guardians - (free weapon [Eldar Missilie Launcher]) - 90
Transport3 Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Lasers 115
1 War Walker - 2 Scatter Lasers - 60
1 Vyper - 1 Shuriken Cannons, 1 Scatter Lasers - 60
3 D-Cannon - 165

Heroes of the Craftworld:
Autarch - Fusion Gun - 80

Engines of Vaul:
3 Falcons - 3 Shuriken Cannons, 3 Scatter Lasers, 3 Pulse Lasers - 405

Aspect Host:
5 Fire Dragons - Exarch - 120
5 Fire Dragons - Exarch - 120
5 Fire Dragons - Exarch - 120

Total 1850pts

This is the closest I've come so far to being happy with it but still feel like I might be losing some firepower out with it.

Combined Arms Detachment:

HQ 1: Autarch - Fusion Gun, Warp Jump Generator, Scorpion Chainsword - 93
HQ 2: Farseer Skyrunner - The Spirit Stone of Anath'lan - 130

Troops 1: 10 Guardians - Scatter Laser - 105
Transport 1 Wave Serpent - Shuriken Cannon & TL Scatter Lasers 125
Troops 2: 3 Windriders - 3 Scatter Lasers - 81

Heavy Support 1: 5 Dark Reapers - Exarch - 140
Heavy Support 2: 3 Falcons - 3 Shuriken Cannons, 3 Scatter Lasers, 3 Pulse Lasers - 405
Heavy Support 3: Vaul's Wrath Support Battery - 3 Vibro Cannons - 90

Lord of War: Wraithknight - 2 Starcannons - 335

Aspect Host Formation (+1 BS):

5 Fire Dragons - Exarch - 120
5 Fire Dragons - Exarch - 120
5 Warp Spiders - Exarch - 105

Comes to 1849pts.

The basic strategy being Autarch is Warlord, joining Warp Spiders. Warp Spiders and Fire Dragons deep strike in the Falcons. Farseer Skyrunner joins the Windriders and goes for Invis for the Wraithknight. The Dark Reapers, Vaul's Wrath Battery and Wraithknight sit as far back as possible shooting anything they can. The main weakness I can foresee is anti-air as I only really have the Dark Reapers for that.
