All in all I think it looks pretty good but could be tweaked a bit. I would drop the Singing Spear on the walking warlock. The question I have with him is did you plan to put him in the Wave Serpent with the Dire Avenger squad? Remember that in the new rules you can not use powers from inside the Wave Serpent and powers go before disembarking (I believe if I am incorrect I do apologize).

I would also maybe change out the Harlequins for another Unit of Striking Scorpions because you do not have a Harlequin delievery system IE a Falcon.

I have not had very good luck with a single Fire Prism as they mostly shoot first turn then spend the rest of the battle shaken or stunned. What your list is lacking IMHO is anti tank. Hawks are great but fragile and fickle ( No matter what F_E says ) I like to rely on something with a bit more certainty like Fire Dragons in a Falcon or a Ghost Ship which is overly expensive for this list. 5 Fire Dragons is only 80 points and they are very reliable to take out heavy infantry and tanks. Do not bother with the Exarch as he is a point sink for what he does. I hope that gives you at least some other options to consider.
