Try some different set ups with the tau weapon configuration like twin linked plasma and shield gen is one of my favs. And stealth teams are very good choice so u can drop 1 squad of fair warriors.

Yeah drones are good. You might also want to think of getting some Kroot.

(please don't start flaming about Kroot)

Best way to see if the final choice is good is to battle some one. I've battled all but one of my army list .Where it's lacked I've try something else. That looks like a good final list thought.
