Another devil fish and a hammerhead.

Now all your firewarriors can get around in style and capture objectives late in the game (give one of these devil fish to your pathfinders then pick up your firewarriors.)
You no longer have to proxy your devilfish as a hammerhead
You'll have a great capture\control force.

Capture force: firewariors in devilfish, hammerhead, all suits.
The suits deepstrike (guided on target via the pathfinders devil fish marker beacon) and secure a zone near your enemys deployment zone. Then your fire warriors supported by your hammerhead zoom forward on a flank and rapid fire anyone that's left, then capture the objective(s)

Control force:Kroot, broadside, pathfinders
These guys essencially hold onto the objective(s) (in cover if possible) and blast, light up or counter charge key enemy units.
"They shall be my finest Cannon Fodder, these men who give themselves to me. Like clay I will mold them and in the furnace of war they will become cracked and broken. They will be of tissue paper and whimpy muscle. In tissue paper armor I clad them and with the mightiest flashlights they will be armed. They will be touched by every sort of plauge or disease to help further make them unhappy, all sickness will blight them. They will have almost no tactics, strategies, but lots of machines so that they can atleast stand up to a foe in battle. They are my tar pit against the Terror. They are the bulk of Humanity. They are my Imperial Guard and they will know much fear!"

A fortress circumvented ceases to be an obstacle. A fortress destroyed ceases to be a threat. Do not forget the difference.

I'd be tempted to bolster your kroot with another box and some more hounds so you have 2 nasty infiltrating flanking units to give you some more flexibility.

And your new firewarriors I would convert into 2 pathfinder squads and add another devilfish.

So your final army would look something like this;

Commander - AFP, Plasma, Tgt Array, Multi Tracker
Commander - CIB, Plasma, Tgt Array, Multi Tracker

3 x Stealth
3 x Stealth
Crisis Monat TL Missile Pods, Positional Relay

12 Firewarriors
12 Firewarriors
16 Kroot + 8 Hounds
16 Kroot + 8 Hounds

6 Pathfinders + Devilfish
6 Pathfinders + Devilfish

Broadside Suit with ASS

And after writing this I thinking Railhead (get the skyray box for the 3 in 1 tank box)
