I Play mechtau, and IMO you have way to many FW's, but its obviously the style you play. If you want something fuen to play with, stealth suits are your best option(they also rid the table of light infantry with ease. If not, either Choose, some more kroot(and a shaper if you dont already have one) or a squad of pathfinders. (Maybe if you posted an army list it would help us determine what your army lacks.)

Looks good so far. You have a very capable force. I would personally shoot for a squad of stealth suits. I would only suggest using squads of 6, or maybe 5. 5 Allow you to take one casualty without forcing morale, but really they shouldn't be fired at too much anyways.

They are probably the best thing Tau has going for them, so make that a top priority!

I personally would also buy one broadside suit or so to give you more anti tank fire, but from what I remember they are similar in price ( $$$) to hammerheads so that could be an option too.

Id go for more HS, maning Broadsides or Hammerheads. You should make them modular so that you can switch the weapons, it shouldent be that hard. I pinned my crisis suits, and used a screw for the weapons on my HH.

Personally, Stealth, then broadsides and/or Hammerheads.

Regarding the above post:
Magnets on Crisis Suits (I don't do this, i just press fit the weapons into place after painting, they fit nicely)
Hammerhead to Devilfish - Modular Tanks

In order:

5-6 man stealth team (my next buy)
2 more crisis so that you will have 3 teams of 2 each
Another DF
Another HH
some BS (optional)
