Are you using combat patrol restrictions?

At this sort of size Missile pod based crisis suits give you decent heavy weapon coverage

The new sniper drone teams are worth thinking about too.

What style of army do you like to play, static, hybrid or mech? In small games static will be problematic as you will have fewer troops to cover the whole table and your opponent will be able to make use of cover more easily.

from the sound of it your playing hybrid/static so for 500 points id probably add Stealth suits youd probably have enopugh to deal with any vehicle threats if you add a missle pod

A mounted fire warrior squad can give you the edge in these small games, i'd suggest taking 1 devilfish, some crisis suits and some stealths.
