hmm, im afriad there are a fair few redundant models in a small list that you will be aiming for! sorry to be blunt but what that army needs is mobility!

HQ - Fireknife 'el
85

ELITES - (buy some more crisis suits to expand with)

2 Crisis, fireknife (go with BC and missile pod vs big bugs against nids), 130

2 Crisis, firekinfe, 130

6 Stealthsuits,, 180

TROOPS - (ok you will HAVE to buy 3 devilfish or 2 at least here)

12 fire warriors, shas'ui, bonded, x 3 = 675
devilfish, decoy launchers
225

20 kroot (kroot are very effective but only when maxed out, buy some more)
140

HEVAY SUPPORT

Hammerhead, Railgun, Burst Cannon
Multitrakcer, decoy launchers
165
x 2 = 330

total - 1670

wont need broadisdes agaisnt nids but maybe against eldar you will need 2/3 depending on what craftworld.

fireknife is missile pod, plasma rifle and multitracker.

With this mobile list i have given you hopefully you will be able to run away from the typranids and stay safe from assault.

crisis and stealth can both move 12" if they use their 6" assault phase move (in any dierction bear in mind!), the fish can move 12" as well, really if you have 3 fishes and 1 HH, i find ithard to beleive that nids can bring all of those down very quickly from just shooting! Against nids make sure to take a unit of stealth and battlesuits with burst cannons that can decimate gaunts. Also if you ever have to choose between battlesuit and fire warriors, choose the FW's agaisnt the nids, their weapons make light work of the small bugs and can wound big bugs too.

it is not the small bugs that im afraid of its the big ones like carniflex, zoanthrope ,hive tyrant and warriors.
another question... can fish move 12 drop troops and then they shoot and jump in again? or can i just shoot and jump in next turn?

FoF = fish of fury, - start with firewarriors in the devilfish....then move the fish within 10" of an enemy and unload the firewarriors 12" from that enemy behind the fish (and 2"from the rear door), then in the shooting phase unkleash 24 rapid fire pulse rifle shots. Then you will be safe from assault by virtue of the fact that you can shoot under the fish but troops cant assault you from under it and will have to go round...taking more than 12", a FoF can take down big bugs dont worry! I know next to nothing about the big bugs toughness and armour saves, wounds etc. so im sorry i cant really help...
