Default Suit Heavy Army

Ok so im looking for some opinions on a army im building its not finished so im not going to post it yet but the basic lineup is:

2 Shas 'o

3 Units of 3 Battlesuits

2 units of 10 firewarriors

2 units of 3 broadsides

now i can see that this army is going to be smaller due to the expensive suits but i can see the strength in the number of potential shots with the ranged weapons, i would like to see if perhaps i should change some things up or if the idea is sound and perhaps competative. Thanks!

The only problem with it is thats it's short on scoring and those troops could be reasonably easy to trash and have a hard time getting round without transport but it should be very heavy on firepower depending on how you equip the suits so it'd make a great annihilation list

hmm perhaps i should set up the units in a way to allow for a devil fish or perhaps 2 for their speed, maybe take 4 units of small squad firewarriors for seize purposes so i can have 2 devil fish to drop them off as i need and place them in reserves

i would recommend pathfinders even if it was only four of them instead of just flat buying a devilfish then you would get the marker beacon allowing you to reroll deepstrikes for your suits and with this many suits that would be very useful i think

They are what i'm recomending is you take four pathfinders and the devilfish that comes with them and take 6 firewarriors to put into the devilfish to make it scoring this way you get some markers but more importantly you get the marker beacon on the devilfish which allows rerolls of deepstrikes which will be a big help to this type of army even if you did it only once and took a normal devilfish for your other firewarrior group.

as well as that perhaps consider taking a positonal relay as well to ensure you can deepstrike those suits on turn 2.

i really like the idea of a suit heavy army, I did try and make my own tau army suit heavy but stuff like rules and model prices got in the way.
