I just won my third GW tournament in a row this past weekend and my good army was a 500pt Grey Company/Rangers of Ithilien/Eagles force. The only suggestions I have for you are:

Too few models, consider Gwaihir alone. For fast troops you don't need many.

As much as I like the Banner of Arwen I believe it is mighty hard to use effectively in a tournament situation. Maybe Arathorn and Halbarad could be in your force instead?

If they are not gaining you four Rangers don't take 'em. Part of the appeal of the Dunedain and Rangers of the North is the fact that they "allow" you to take four Ranger troops.
