You should consider putting together some more forces prior to the battle. Guard and Nids are both predoninantly Horde armies, so to take out squad after squad you should DEFINATELY consider getting a Hammerhead. Droping ordinance templeates all over the place and instant-killing the lot is supremely satisfying, and no matter how much armour or monsterous creatures they throw, a solid shot should punch alot of holes. New models aside, here goes:
- Mount the Fire Caste in a Devilfish, it gives them the mobility to keep away from the bugs.
- Use one lone Crisis and the other two as elites, give them all missile pods and either burst cannons or plasma rifles.
- The Kroot should be a bigger squad.
- The gun drones can pin units in place and penetrate most armour of Guard or Nids.

If you can go shopping before, get a Hammerhead for squad-wiping firepower and tankbusting or killing Hive Tyrants or Carnifexes. Get some Stealths, they can cause a MASSIVE amount of shooting damage. 18 shots that penetrate armour from six!

Get some heavy in there, HH or broad sides .

Hammerhead by far... this guy wants to play mech tau, and having slow, lumbering Broadsides against 18" moving Nids is darn near suicidal.

How many points are you intending on playing?

And keep in mind not to glue in the crisis suit weapons :P

We will probably be playing anywhere from a 500-1500 point battle if that helps.

Re: My army
 
You need more models if you want to reach the high end of that points range, so far an over-kitted force would only hit the 700 point area.

For 500 points, you will probably play smallish boards and trying to stay under-points so I would recommend not taking any Kroot or the Etherial.

Bring the Fire Warriors, possibly in a Devilfish
Use all 3 Crisis in the loadouts I mentioned above
And Gun Drones

That gives you a very mobile force and lets you stay in the pts range.

Re: My army
 
For a Mech Tau army, you should easily build a 1000pts list...advice? Ok! ^-^

Crisis Suits: Make one a Shas'el with TL Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle, HW Multi-Tracker.
Make the other two 2 Monat Shas'ui's with TL Missile Pod, Flamer

Firewarriors: All with Pulse Rifles, a Shas'ui upgrade, mounted on a Devilfish

Drones: Only take a squad of 8...

And everything else is self explanitory! :) Enjoy!
