Nice list...but small...even for 400pts...

1 Shas'vre battle suit-122
plasma rifle
missle pod
shield generator
Hardwired drone controler+2 gun drones
Drop the Shiled Generator and the HW DC and Drones, as he has one wound anyway, its not worth it...also drop him down to a regular shas'ui, freeing up even more points. Be sure to give him a multi-tracker as well with his Plasma Rifle and Rocket Pod...

1 Fire warrior squad-192
7 Fire warriors- 70
1 Shas'ui with hardwired drone controler+2 gun drones-42
Devilfish-80
Now with the free points saved from the crisis suits, beef up your firewarriors to 12 models, including shas'ui...also drone the HW DC and Drones.

10 kroot+2 hounds-82
Also beef them up a bit...16 maybe? ??? But try and get 18 Kroot out of the points (since you have hounds)...

Other than that, it looks ok!

No, it's a Shas'vre. He left out the hardwired multi-tracker. Suits can get really expensive when they start taking shields and hardwired systems:

Shas'ui -> Shas'vre upgrade
Plasma Rifle / Missile Pod
Shield Generator
Hardwired Multi-tracker
Hardiwred Drone Controler / 2x Gun Drones

122 points.

This should be toned down, to two battle suits for 130 points. Twice the power for the same price.

Either get more Kroot, or drop them. In this small of a game, all units are fair shooting game. So the Kroot will see bolters or anything else, and die from them. Those few Kroot are not enough to do much if they take even 3 or 4 wounds.

The firewarriors in a fish are a good thing though--but again, lose the gundrones here. Move those points into the Kroot to beef up.

I'd go with :

FoF
-12 FW
-shas'ui
Devilfish
-DL
215pts

Crisis
-TLFB
-Flamer
54pts

16 Kroot
-112pts

3 hounds
18pts

399pts

lots of units and instakill power for any charcters and AT aswell as a big unit of kroot and a FoF for staying power and pinpoint damage .

lost of dakkal and enough models to soak up some firepower.

If it's 40k in 40 min, that list works. Otherwise, if he has to use a stnd army list (real pain in the @$$ for that many points) it doesn't. Warbird, if your buddies complain about a lack of HQ, argue that a small tau patrol would NOT have an extremely important commander on some little bush run; he'd be commanding major battles.

Otherwise, awesome list! Use it.

soemthing at 400pts (which is what combat patrol is) and called combat patrol (which is what 40/40 is now called) is most likely the one that does not require an HQ
