Working from your list.

1X Farseer (metal) Go in any list.
2X Avatar of khaine (Both Metal) Have his uses but easy to out manouver.
30X Guardians (15XNew Plastic, 11x old all same stance, 4 metal) They need some Heavy weapons, add the crew and grav platforms here. 3x 12 Guardians with brightlance give you much needed anti-tank, EML for all commers or scatter laser for anti-horde.
16xRangers..scouts..(Metal) Have their uses in most list.
6xWarlocks(Metal) Join with the Guardians for buffs and more WC-Dices.
8XSwooping hawks(Metal) Best used in a squad of 5+exarch to give them a large pieplate to throw around each turn.
2xSwooping Hawk exach (metal) Se above
6XDire Avengers(Metal) Cheep Little unit that can take a Wave Serpent as transport.
10xstriking scorpions(metal) Good against hordes.
2xscorpion exachs(metal)
7xwarpspiders(metal) You could need one more to have to units of 5, exarch inclueded that can jump around hitting rear armour.
2xspiderexach(uh metal)
6x Grav cannon crew and 2 grav cannon platforms(still metal) If these are the smaller platforms use them with the Guardians as above. If not, have them on their own. D-blast is not to be sniffed at.
5x Wriath guard(metal ... is that one lead?) Keepers, hard hitting and can take the hitting back. Joined by Fuegan you have a strong unit that can blow up anything in shooting and Fuegan can take the heat in melee.
1xHarlequin death jester (wax.. just kidding its metal)
1xfuegan the burning lance(ahh god more metal) Se above
1xeldar reaper missing his gun(Why metal there is so much)
1x wraith lord(made from super practical Metal) Give him a Heavy weapon of some sort.
1xWarwalker(God damn metal again) Two slots of Heavy weapons.
3xGrav Tanks (1 i gave to grim and is now a dakka jet) What types?
20xJet bikes(i think i dont know there are so many parts) best used in small squads for last turn objective grabbing.
3/4x vipers(again there are just parts everywhere) keep them cheep and give them range.

Without knowing what weapon loadouts the hevier units have there is difficult to give any firm advice. Their tanks is realy good and you could have on squad of 20 Guardians with 2 grav platforms and then have a unit of 12 or 11+ warlock in a wave serpent as DT. Then, like the DA you have two tanks on the field with massive fire Power and they can disembark onto objectives late game. Equiped right I Think you have most what you need.
Look for ranged anti-hordes, a Farseer on jetbike is better than on foot. He can go faster where his Powers are needed.

currently they have no weapon loadouts they are just pieces.
ive got the pieces for 2 prism tank turrets (old and metal just how i like them)
and have the parts to make them all standard falcon grav tanks instead i think

Vipers im not sure what they are equipped with if they are even equipped with anything they are in so many pieces dont even remember what weapons they can have.

Prism's are realy good but I would stay away from the Falcon. Try to convert them into Wave Serpents instead, you could easy change from prism to Serpents whatever the need.

Edit: The wraithguard can take a Wave Serpent as dedicated transport. They are bulky so you can have 6 of them or 5 +character. Good to have the unit reach the enemy since they are slow on their own.

Maybe only helmet, shoulders and knees. The barrel on the Gun could be a metallic or bone.
The blue is though a very nice colour that will light up any battlefield they set their feet on.

Good luck!
took out the pink and yep i think it looks better without seems to be more subtle

You were correct i think i have improved with the newer ones



i went and bought more paints to try and blend a bit better and removed the pink and i think its a great improvement.

here is the outcome i would love to hear people thoughts especially if you prefer purple Helmet or blue Helmet or dont like either



Still need to do their guns and Bases will do them later

Was thinking snowy Bases dont know why i just get a snowy feel fom the models/

These look awesome! I prefer the blue helmet option. The repainting was definitely an improvement!

I'd keep a mix, both colour schemes look like part of the same army. Have one squad of guardians in one scheme and the other the other. Maybe Storm Guardians as purple helmet and the guardian defenders as the blue. I know that you had some metal guardians with cc weapons knocking around originally.

That's a good Idea Grim I've got enough spare arms and weapons knocking about to convert this purple eldar into a close combat guy.

would it look weird to have old and new Guardians mixed together in one squad?.
