Well my normal list has about 3-4 markerlights in that size of an army simply because i dont do much with the NLs which i AM tring to fix) but i say that 1 pathfinder squad of 8 would be perfectly adequate for that size.

1500.. probably a squad of pathfinder's worth, maybe a few on the firewarriors.... 2000+, 2 squad's worth with lights on the firewarriors....

those 5 gun drones seem a little out of the blue, are they just to make up the 1500?

No.
In my original army list I had 1 more sniper team but no advanced stabilisation systems (Too good to resist) in my broadside team (or A.S.S to make it short) or gun drones. I could of spent the 60 points on a huge amount of over things but the resion I chose gun drones is i felt guilty not having any fast attack.
Plus I think they are far better value than fire warriors.

Drop the sniper teams (for 2 Heavy support, plenty) and go with only 2 people in the AFP squad. 2 suits is plenty to mow down just about anything.

A unit of Pathfinders usually does the trick for me. They almost always hit statistically average, too..
