What is the point value that your are looking for?

With that said, the only thing I would add would be a team of Stealth Suits.
I love these guys, they are great at harassing the enemy. Often in the games
that I have played they killed twice the points that they were worth.

Hope that this helps.

to generally expand and give you a nice core force of fire warriors and battlesuits, a battleforce set would be a wise investment for the money it saves.

you already have enough FW IMO, so the BB isnt a good ivestment as it makes more fishes neccecary

you have

Shas'El
fireknife
85pts

FoF
-12 man
-DL
-'Ui
225pts

FoF
-12 man
-DL
-'Ui
225pts

so 535pts

to go up to 1000 I'd get :

HH
-Rail
-BC
-MT
-DL
165pts

HH
-Rail
-BC
-MT
-DL
165pts

20 Kroot
140pts.

for a total of 1005pts.

this gives you an anchor of kroot to work off and a hard hitting force of 2 teams of a HH and FoF.

If your interested in more mecha tactics I recommend this guide

yup, thats a solid 1000point list, if a smidgin too much heavy support with both those HH's but hey thats just me! The BB will be used and is worth the money is you plan on going up to 1500points and beyond, its one of the rare occasions that gw are offering you a good deal! take it!

will be used?, I would never use more than 2 or 3 Fishes in 1500pts, hell I think 2 in 1k is too many :P.

and 2 HH is standard IMO, it adds too much punch to leave out.

2 Fishes in 1500 and 2 squads of kroot is fine IMO, I'd go for 3 kroot squads after reading the krrot are the real troops article (if you want it I'll dig it up for you)

I think 3 kroot is to much
the rest however is fine a unit of gun drones would help and stealth suits are all ways good investment.
