Default 1500 point tournament army-opinions & suggestions wanted

I am currently in the midst of painting an entire Tau army to play in a tourney in June. This particular tournament has 25 different scenarios, most of which include reserves of some sort, so mobility is important.

I have composed the following list:

Shas'el fireknife w/MT 85
12 Fw's in DF w/shas'u,MT , DL 225
12 Fw's in DF w/shas'ui,MT,DL, 1seeker missle, 235
6 gue'vesa'la w/sarge w/markerlight emp grenades 74 ( these guys can be dual purpose depending on the scenario and I expect they will cause some Imperial players to go to extraordinary measures to get them )
18 kroot 126
6 stealth 180
3 crisis fireknife 195
HH w/railgun, 2 BC, MT,DL 165
2 Tetras w/targetting array 130 ( I'm only adding these for the look - I have no idea how they will do and I'm sure points could be better spent but I'm keeping these in )
1 Broadside w/MT & Tl plasma ( I want him to be able to move and shoot and be 85 points of scary to some armies and my important 2nd railgun vs others )

*** the 1 seeker was a 10 point filler to make the list 1500 exactly- I'm not sure where to tweak to fill out the kroot squad

total points 1500 exactly.
Opinions??

The list looks good, but for some reason it seems like the model count is low. I dont know why, maybe its just me ???.

I'd lose the tetra's and the 1 seeker missile giving you 140 points to play with, mabay an other HH with Rail and no upgardes, but on the whole a good force

I'm trying to get a perfect composition score, and as it stands it scores 20 out of 20, any duplicate HS,Elite or FA, or HQ will ding me for minus points.I've always found that at the end of the tourney a very small number separates the top 10, and compo points loss is not necessary

nice, very comp oriented, but are you sure the tournament allows FW stuff?

and I'd drop the Mt's and get the other 2 tanks a seeker or drop the seeker and give the FishesTA

or drop the MT's and get the HH a TL and SMS.

I'd go for one of the first 2 as it puts you back at exactly 1500

Exellent suggestions Dizzy, I hadn't thought of TA on a fish, or MT and SMS on the HH would be quite usefull at times

thanks!!

Terras? VV_oV I'd use them, but I don't have the $ to order them. Can't say how good they'll be. Otherwise looks good. Any idea what races you'll be up against?

If previous years are any measure ( this will be the 5th year- I've fielded my Ulthwe in the 1st 4 ) the armies I will be facing will be the standard mix ( majority space marines ) but with a lot of guard and chaos in the mix ( last year out of 50 there were 2 tau and 4 eldar, 4 necrons, with the rest space marines, IG and chaos-pretty much in that order )
