Eldar Beginner, 1500pt list

This is one of my first army lists I have put together, Just wanted to get some feedback. Ive won two 400 point battles, as if that means anything, and got my ass stomped at two 1500... any help would be great!

10 Pathfinders 240
10 Guardian Jetbikes 220

Fast Attack
5 Shining Spear, Exarch 187
6 warpspiders, exarch 144

Heavy Support
2 Falcon Gravs 230

6 Firedragons, exarch 108
6 Striking Scorpians, exarch 108

Autarch, jetbike 100

Unless my math is off that comes out to 1337, and since it is leet it has to work right? But it leaves me with 163 points for Wargear, and to me seems pretty fast and solid.

Thank for any help

I'd lose some scorpions for a second troop choice as you say, maybe just a unit of 3 bikes with a shuriken cannon. Some rangers might also be worth looking at.

You can upgrade the Farseer a bit I think. A jetbike and mind war makes him very good for killing heavy weapons guys of veteran sergeants. Alternatively fortune and put him in a unit of shining spears.

The autarch doesn't need the reaper launcher and it doesn't really work on a jetbike anyway. A fusion gun is a good alternative, or just keep a pistol for a second attack in CC.

I would lose the war walkers for a second falcon. Where the WWs are ridiculously easy to kill the falcon is ridiculously difficult to kill. Not as shooty, but it gets to fire more than once. If nothing else at least split the WWs into two units.

You might end up with a complete jetbike/skimmer army. I think that would be pretty cool.
