Default Re: Noob needs help

First off, your list needs some clearing up:
HQ:
Ethereal w/honour guard, gun drone, devilfish, (two gun drones)
Crisis Suit:
Shas'vre w/target lock, fusion blaster, missile pod
XV25 stealth suit team:
Shas'vre w/markerlight, marker drone, fusion blaster, command and control node, target lock, targetting array, hard-wired drone controller
XV15 stealth suit team:
Kroot:
Squad of 10 kroot
Firewarriors:
Squad of 12 firewarriors, (pulse rifles), with 2 gun drones, (team leader has markerlight)
Squad of 6 firewarriors, (pulse carbines), and one gun drone

Upgrades:
Second off, you should say how many stealth suits are in each squad, (XV15, and 25), third off, don't load up your XV25 shas'vre with so much stuff, he doesn't need it, and it's expensive. Now, setups:
Ethereal:
You might want to switch your ethereal for a crisis suit commander, a good general setup for this is:
Shas'o w/plasma rifle, missile pod, and multi-tracker, this is only 112 points. Plus, it can take down lightly armoured vehicles, and heavily armoured troops.
Crisis Suit:
You should give your shas'vre a multi-tracker so he can fire both of his weapons.
Purchasing:
Your list has one major flaw, it can't take out highly armoured tanks, you need to add some railguns in there, (Hammerheads, or broadsides), then you might want to get some more crisis suits. Look around for any deals your warhammer store might have on crisis suits, (if they don't have any you're probably only going to be able to get one), and that's about 60 dollars.

In your list you should state this, and be more descriptive on who has what.

I'm confused, what are you trying to say?

You may not want to bother with the marker light for your stealths; even though they have the stealth fields you may still want to jump-shoot-jump (which would negate the "heavy" markerlight's use).
10 Kroot aren't really good for much of anything (except maybe capturing a table corner under no fire). I've only had success with squads of 20 (after numurous failures with 12).
You really should have 2 full 12 man FW squards; so maybe when you get another devilfish get the one with the 8 FW and use them to bring the 6-man squad up to 12.
Everything else looks like it has been said. Good luck and may you crush your foes like they are small...crushable things. (food's ready, distracted now)

use the rest of your money and buy tanks.

2 hammerheads or 1 hammerhead + 2 broadsides should do it.
