I was thinking about that... but not only did I glue my hh's with railguns, but I thought that having only one railgun would be insufficient to take out heavy armor... especially if that railgun were destroyed or disabled.* Instead the fireknifes will do the same work. Might be a good idea if my enemy doesn't have many tanks, or a land raider for instance though.

I like it.
You've got everything you need. If you added anything, I'd hope for a fat squad of Kroot (they couple very well with Mech-Tau). Keep all your railguns because one is certainly not enough in 1500 points. Too many big tanks are found in 1500 and those hammers are your only source of mobile and reliable AT that can bust those big numbers.

looks adequate, obviously been following the mechtau bible .

however myself I'd put the seekers on the pathfinders fish, makes the HH's less of a juic target and if it draws fire they arent targeting the HH.

the TL on the BC HH is not really worth it IMO, and keep the 2 rails.

and personally I'd drop a fish team and scavenge 15 pts (perhaps a stealth? it brings them down to 5 where its 3 casualties for below 50 and 50% check aswell) for a nice fat unit of kroot and another 'El for more untargetable goodness.
