Default Army list: What next?

OK, so i have a pretty decent army so far, here is the listings:

Infantry
12 FWs with gun drones
16 Kroot Carivores

HQ
1 XV8 Shas'el Commander (CIB,Plasma,TA)

Elites
3 XV15 Stealth suits (including 1 Shas'ui with Sheild Drone)

Fast Attack
1 Piranha (sorry if i spelled it wrong)

All painted execpt for the Shas'ui and Sheild Drone.

My question is, What next?

Not much else to do, than keep buying and makeing your army bigger, and start playing- it's always good if you can find a nearby club/store and join them!

Ok If I were to make a suggestion, I'd say suits. Both some XV-8 (any config of your choice) and some XV-88 (some heavy support might be useful).

Aside from that, I would add 6-12 kroot hounds.

Depending on your playing style. Things you could look at.

1. 1 Squad FW, to increase your firebase fire power, this also will allow you more flexability when using your Kroot (infiltration)

2. 2 XV8 in a Fireknife or Deathrain Configuration, to supplement your FW firebase

3. 1 Piranha, Will allow you increase your fire power on his flanks or his or her rear line

4. 1 Hammerhead or Sniper Drone Team, The Hammerhead will give you the options to have a very Mobile Anti Tank platform or Anti Infantry GEQ with the Railgun and Submunition, then you can use the Ion Cannon if playing against Marines. The Sniper drones altough a small unit can cause quite a few MEQ deaths if playing lower points games and then your combined firebase of FW can finish them off.

I would recommend ether a Sky ray box or more crisis suits. It comes with the stuff to make a hammer head and you will have plenty of seeker missiles and the crisis suits, well because crisis suits are pure good. For my army my suits and hammer heads form the core of my army.
You also can't go wrong with more fire warriors, devilish or broadsides. They are all useful for practically every Tau army.

As with everyone that asks these questions, you left out a critical detail that most Tau players need to know before they give you advice on what to buy next:

What kind of army are you going for?
Mech?
Static?
Hybrid?
Mobile Infantry?
Something else?

Without this critical information, everything we say will just be shots in the dark, because if you take our advice, you may get something (or have a higher chance of doing so) that you don't actually want to play with after a game or two.

I myself simply can't give you any more advice without knowing what you're going for.
