Default New Tau player looking for help

Hello all. I am new to Warhammer 40k and decided upon the Tau. A friend got me into the game about 3 weeks ago and since then I have been having a blast with my Tau army. Being still new to the game and trying to pick up on all the rules, I was wondering if I could get some suggestions on my current list that I am running. Anyway, here's the list:

Shas'el - TL plasma rifle, missle pod, HW multi-tracker, HW drone controller w/2 shiled drones

Fireknife (x2) - Plasma rifle, missle pod, multi-tracker

Deathrain (x2) - TL missle pod, targeting array

10 Firewarriors
Devilfish - Disruption pods

10 Firewarriors
Devilfish - Disruption pods

10 Kroot

Heavy Support:
Hammerhead (x2) - Railgun, burst cannons, disruption pods, multi-tracker

Broadside (x2) - TL railgun, SMS, targeting array. Team leader with HW drone controller w/2 shield drones

Not sure where to take my army from here and not even really sure if it's any good in its current state. Not sure how I feel about the Kroot yet either. I use 2 squads of 10 FW's because I just feel that squads of 6 are too fragile. HQ has shield drones right now just because I don't have anymore crisis suits. Once I get more I will either expand my elite slots to 3 or add the bodyguards. As is, the HQ can join either crisis suit team and add some firepower to them. Shield drones are on the broadsides for some added survivability. Both the broadsides and hammerheads are there for obvious anti-tank/vehicle purposes and can switch to help with anti-infantry with their SMS or submunition rounds. Any comments, critiques or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
