i must ask what you think a standard Hammerhead is, by the looks it is a railhead but it could be a loaded up railhead.

Sorry about that, my bad.

Just by counting the models in your army there is only 50 including drones. and why do you need 4 rail guns this seems alittle much IMO. in 1500 pts I (IMO) take about 2 maybe drop one of the fireknife units too and maybe add some more firewarriors.

It appears you plan on using the PF to light for the railguns. This isn't a bad idea, but the PF are enherently expensive and vulnerable. Once the enemy realizes you are gutting him because of a small expensive and weak infantry unit, they will die. Remember, the PF will only be at most 36" away from the enemy.

for the pts, you can take the 216 pts and up the one FW unit to 10 (optimum), add another 10 FW unit and give them both 'ui with markerlight. This will make your force a little more flexible and still be able to light. Since your playing statically with the FW, it is also a way to keep the markerlight in operation a little longer. Oh, don't forget the target lock on the 'ui so the FW can shoot separately.

I would also consider dropping 1 BS and convert 2 fireknives to deathrain. The deathrain is more points conservative and is the best option for supporting static FW squads, while the fireknife is better suited for quick reaction against termies and drop podding SM. the 2 unbonded BS in a single unit means that if one dies the other will have a 50% chance of running off (last man standing, 50%, etc). I run a pair in a unit, but I bond them so as to get auto regrouping.

At this points level, however, I'd rather have a few stealth rather than 2 BS.
If you drop one fireknife +drones, and 1 BS, you can pick up a small stealth them. Stealth do the killing for Tau. They have a good save, are shot at via night fight rules, and they pump out enough shots to cause SM to fail saves regularly.

Just some opinions.

have you thought of using a 3 man stealth team with 6 gun drones. I've used it 4 times with really good success except one bad move in the last game forgot about a grey knight squad in a very well concealed building and opps there's the farm.
