Default Army suggestions

Hey all!

Im gearing up for my first tabletop battle with Tau. Its not in a pro comp, just versing my girlfriends brother.

He collects IG and has a fair army

1 squad of Kaskrins
1 Chimera
1 Basilisk
1 Sniper Tea
1 Leman Russ
1 HQ Squad
Couple of Sentinels
And a lot of guardsmen

Now for my list(not much of it, but anyway)

1 Shas'o suit with bodyguards (2)
3 Stealthsuits
1 Ethereal
3 squads of Fire Warriors
12 Kroot
1 Devilfish
1 Pathfinder Team
1 Hammerhead
1 Piranha
And the asscoiated Gun Drones (18 or so)

He's a serious Gunslinger, so chances are he'll throw his heavy stuff at me. Now he hasn't versed a Tau army before, so if anyone has any tips to blow him away, I'd be happy to hear them.
Shas'O Fi'rios Kais Kauyon Suam Shas'ka Commander Sunfury
Supreme Commander of the Tigers of Fi'rios 1st Regiment
'He often dove deep into enemy trenches, unleashing pulse after pulse of fire upon the wretched Orks... it was believed it looked like the sun itself had become angered, and rained its fury upon all...' in turn this earned Kais Kauyon, his new name and role as Shas'O

I would try to proxy the devilfish as a second hammerhead. Also, use your pirhana team to kill his basilisks as they will most likely be out of LOS to your hammerheads. I wouldn't really recommend using pathfinders versus guard. Additionaly, I would recommend making your bodyguard into regular crisis suit 'ui Firestorms and your commander an 'El with a Fusion cannon, missile pod, targeting array, and HW-multi tracker (stims and shield drones could be useful as well. Lastly, taking a Stealth marker team (each stealth suit gets a drone controller and 1 marker drone and the team leader gets a markerlight, they can move and shoot due to relentless) might be a good idea if you put seeker missiles on your vehicles.
