Default What to buy next?

Hey,
I am brand new to this board and have recently acquired my brother's Tau army. It consists of
24 Fire Warriors
10 Kroot
2 Devilish
1 Hammerhead
1 Ethereal
1 Crisis Commander
2 Crisis Suits
2 Broadsides
3 Stealth Suits

I have 100 dollars and I was wondering what I should buy next to make it a mobile force.

Thanks

Looks pretty mobile to me. The Fire Warriors are mobile via the 2 Devilfish. The stealths and crisis are jump infantry. The only immobile pieces are the ethereal, kroot and broadsides.

You could get a couple hammerheads to replace the broadsides, but if you do a quick search you find a thread or two on the merits of broadsides vs hammerheads. Broadsides tend to be preferred for a number of reasons.

The kroot can infiltrate which largely ameliorates their immobility problem.

So buying another hammerhead would be good?
For a mech army would three squads of fire warriors in fishes be advisable?
How about sniper teams and path finders?

I'f you want mobile I'd recommend some piranhas or a thrid Fire warrior with a devilfish would be nice too.

The pathfinder are another god choise, the sniper drones are nice but cannot move and shoot though.
