Default New Units YAY!!!

alright guys, I have some money and i intend to widen the ranks. I already have
1 commander crisis suit + his bodyguard
24 fire warriors
3 stealth suits
2 pathfinders with rail rifles
a broadside, hammerhead and a devilfish that equals 1284 points

I'm trying to go for a well rounded army that has an answer for what ever the enemy can throw at me.
I'd like to get 3 regular pathfinders, 6 vespid and 4 kroot hounds giving me a total of 1470 points. what do you guys think? All suggestions will be appreciated. thanks in advance.

Well you need a kroot carnivore squad first before you buy hounds. I would say either buy some more heavy support (broadsides or sniper drones) or more crisis suits. But this all depends on what style you plan on playing (seems hybrid to me) but if you really want some kroot hounds as I said above mabye a kroot squad is your best bet.

Shield Drones come with Shadowsun, the Ethereal models (some of them, anyway), and the original Pathfinder and XV-15 Stealthsuit Shas'ui models (I think). Sort of a mixed bag. You are probably better off just converting them. There are a lot of examples of that dotted around the forums here.

The easy way to convert a shield drone is to simply leave the guns off a gun drone. For you're army I would suggest getting more crisis suits. Personnally, to diversify I use (and would suggest to you) a few "anti mob" crisis (burst cannon, missile pod, and multi-tracker), and a few "anti armour" crisis (plasma rifle, fusion blaster and multi-tracker). The anti mobs are to take out large units, like I.G and tyranids, while the anti armour is great for 3+ armoured enemies, as well as tanks. I would suggest upgrading one crisis per squad with team leader, targeting array, and a drone controller with 2 gun drones. I would definatly suggest at least one shield drone for you're broadside, to block at least a couple of instant death shots going his way.

I would say your next group of units would depend on your foe. Space Marines, Chaos, Necrons I would go with Sniper Drones and TL Plasma rifle Crisis suits. Tyranids, Orks, Imperial Guard I would go with Flamer and Burst cannon Crisis suits and Hammerheads for the railgun submunition.

Careful of the vespids

They are actually cool model wise, but the one I got was difficult base wise.

Some tools will be necessary.

I'd get more Crisis suits honestly, they do good against any army, and you'll usually have 6+ in your army.

(Deathrain, Fireknife, Plasma-Gunners setups)

Watch out for the antennae, too. They are only attached to the head by a very small piece of pewter, and it is very difficult to glue them back on should they break.
