Assuming you are keeping the other parts of your list static - warp spiders. You have a jump generator on your autarch, and it is really very risky to use that second jump move unless he is in a warp spider squad. If you choose not to add warp spiders, I'd recommend replacing the generator with hawk wings for the same benefit - with less risk.

Besides, warp spiders would really help out the mobility of this list, and are just an all around great unit. Also, I'd fill out the scorpions a bit. You could bump them up to 8 or even 10 pretty cheaply, and make them more effective in the process. My last recommendation is a warlock for your guardian squad. Give him conceal to help keep the squad alive, and upgrade him to a spirit seer to provide wraithsight for you wraithlord, who seems to be walking around blind.

So, to sum up my suggestions:

2-4 more scorpions

A 6-8 man squad of Spiders with exarch, withdraw, (power blades if you plan on delivering the autarch to combat), and maybe the deathspinner if you're the type that likes it... I think that or the dual deathspinners are both good choices

and a spirit seer in the guardian squad.

All this should run you around 350ish depending on how you outfit things, and how many scorpions you select. That'll still leave you about 150 for other upgrades. If you tweak it a bit, you could probably work in a wave serpent for the avengers - that'll make them pretty nasty.

No offense taken - you'd be nuts if you went strictly off my advice.

I think most will agree about the warp jump generator - the other stuff is just my take on it. The jump generator is a big risk without a warp spider squad.
