Edit: Uhh, by 'troop only' I meant 'no vehicles'. Sorry bout that.
I have several reasons why I'm only going troop only, but basically its because I love the range of tau models, but I think the vehicles look lame. The tau have plenty of infantry able to blow up vehicles and take down monstrous creatures, so I'm not worried about not having any heavies.
Burst Cannon+Missile Pod+M.T.
Ok, so I had a few questions: Is the 6+ save on the kroot worth it? Also, with the Kroot, should I go for 3x squads of 10 instead (Since they'll probably be a big target).
I think in the 1500 point army, I'm going to put in a couple of broadsides, and probably 3 more stealth suits, or just add in like 2 more squads of firewarriors and 1 kroot squad.

I DO LIKE A GOOD GRUMBLE!
I think you mean missile pod for your commander, not smart missile. I wound give all your battlesuits multi-trackers so they can shoot all their weapons in one turn. Take out the body guards and put in a 2 man battlesuit team or two one man teams. Also I dont think mixing weapons in a battlesuit team is the right way to go. I think that shapers and their 6+ saves are useless because most weapons have an AP, even if they didn't 6+ isn't very good.
The bodyguard have no Drone controllers so you cannot take the Marker Drone. This unit is also very mixed up, what are you intending them to do? You have a Shas'El that is only any good against infantry, a bodyguard with long range missile pod and a short ranged burst cannon (is it anti vehicle or anti infantry?) and another with a close range fusion blaster. The unit is a mess, you need to give this unit a purpose and outfit it to carry out that purpose. This unit is geared to handle to much, only problem is it is no good at handling anything consistently. You should be utilising the Shas'Els superior BS and the BG's ability to take HW equipment and give them TA's. If you give them all MP's, Plasma, TA's and HW Multi trackers you will have a unit that can handle pretty much anything at superior BS.
You have to much invested in pointless Markerlights (Drones are illegal anyway).
Sorry to be harsh but you need to really rethink your approach because this list will not last very long against most lists (if it was legal that is).
