-   2.   Striking Scorpions will get close to priority targets and will do what their good at.
-   3.   War Walkers will be nearby to support the DAs, while the Wave Serpents will be used as can openers.
-   4.   The rangers are targeting what is needed to be taken down. Same as the HQs.

Tactics:
1.   Karandras will be joining 1 of the scorpions units although both units will be near each other for support and benefits from the Phoenix Lord.
2.   Dark Reapers will clear or open vehicles and kill Monsters as much as they can.
3.   CH Exarch will support the ground if no flyers around, otherwise hunting and killing flyers.
4.   Rangers will target units and kill high priority targets. Illic will be supporting their shots and make sure to finish Monsters with his shots.
5.   DA’s will be clean-up crew on certain mess or hordes
6.   Wave Serpents will be doing some vehicle hunting or transporting units.

I could use new suggestions, if any out there?

I guess the big question here is how you're going to deal with vehicles. Your only sources of attacks greater than S6 are Karandras, and the two twin Bright Lances on the Serpents. You can lean on mortal wounds from snipers and mandiblasters to some extent but i'm not sure it'll be enough.

Under advice I changed it and came up with Plan B. I saw what you meant and made the modifications. Thank you.

See anything else that we can modify?

Remember that Mandiblasters only work against infantry.

The AML is just not an efficient weapon.  If you want versatile weapons that are great against tough targets, but is still more efficient than the AML against T3 5+ and T4 3+ targets, use Starcannons instead.  I'd recommend putting Bright Lances on the War Walkers and Starcannons on the Wave Serpents.  The Serpents aren't carrying melee units, so as much as Vectored Engines and Star Engines are fun, they don't synergize well with the cargo or the armament.  It's worth keeping the CTM because the Serpents will probably move every turn, and they'll probably end up closest to a variety of targets over the course of a game (another benefit from being armed with Starcannons).

Alternatively, you could just keep Bright Lances on all of those platforms and use the extra 80pts from ditching the AMLs, Vectored Engines, and Star Engines on adding a Shuriken Cannon to each of the Serpents and changing the Scorpions from 2 x 10 to 3 x 8 (still with Exarchs and Claws).  If you opted for Starcannons on the Serpents, you could ignore the changes immediately above add a Farseer.  If so, you can get another CP by splitting a War Walker squadron and forming a Spearhead.
Shuriken weaponry is the pinnacle of antiSpocklizardry in 40k.
