Default 1750 points Tau Ressurection

Hi all! Having been afraid to touch my poor mechanized almost suitless "I flee from every combat" Tau since the release of 5th edition, I decided to take a good look at my army and maybe take it into another direction, trying to get more 'suits and firewarriors in there seeing as how the whole FoF-thing isn't really that great anymore and the Warfish has lost some of it's edge. Also, I've always wanted to ge me some markelights into my lists. So, here we are, I guess this is sort of a hybrid thing. I don't have any experience with anything that's not a Piranah or based on (or in) the devilfish hull apart from the Shas'El, so any feedback would be appreciated.

I'm going to be playing mainly mechanized Guardsmen and Death Guard with this list.

97 Shas'El, Plasmarifle, Missile Pod, Targetting Array, HWMT

162 3 Stealth Suits, Team Leader w/, Fusion Blaster, HWTL, HWDC and 2 Marker Drones
144 3 Crisis Suits, Twin-linked Missile Pods, Target Lock
186 3 Crisis Suits, Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi-tracker

150 12 Firewarriors, Shas'ui w/ Markerlight, Bonding Knife and Target lock
150 12 Firewarriors, Shas'ui w/ Markerlight, Bonding Knife and Target lock
150 12 Firewarriors, Shas'ui w/ Markerlight, Bonding Knife and Target lock
150 12 Firewarriors, Shas'ui w/ Markerlight, Bonding Knife and Target lock

Heavy Support;
250 3 Broadsides, 2 Target Locks, 1 Drone Controller w/ 2 Shield Drones
155 Hammerhead, Railgun, Burst Cannons, Disruption Pod
155 Hammerhead, Railgun, Burst Cannons, Disruption Pod

1749 points

The "tactic" I had in mind is basically; Stealth team activates first and tries to shoot a tank with the fusion blaster and fire the rest of the squad at threatening infantry, along with the markerdrones. The marked squad gets fired at by the Firewarrior squads (who proceed to other squads once the first is dead) while their Shas'uis light up as many tanks as possible within their LoS. After that the broadsides spread their fire on the marked tanks, and the hammerheads lend assistance where one BS4 TL Railgun shot didn't do the trick. Deathrains and Fireknives deal with MEQ and transports.

That's the plan, anyway.
