    A Shas'el with targetting array does the same thing as a Shas'O for cheaper. I don't care about a Tau's combat prowess. Shield drones are enough, you don't need FNP.

    I don't like twin missiles, the Fire Knife config dishes out more dakka and helps bring down Terminators and the like.

    I'd find room for Kroot here. Dirt cheap infiltrating cover loving troops decent in combat are hard to pass up.

    FW don't need any upgrades, or even increased numbers. Consider them an upgrade to your Devilfish to make them scoring.

    Pathfinders are yayzors.

    Hammerhead is great, bring another.

    Broadsides are cool, though I prefer S&P and Shield Drones for protection.

    I'd look into Piranhas too. Cheap, speedy units to block movement, provide cover, and bust up tanks.

    I'm mostly with Chumbalya's advice, especially on the Fire Warriors. I'm dubious on Kroot, but that may just be because Heavy Flamers are everywhere here and people like to burn Kroot, probably because they smell like KFC.
