    That is not a lot of Heavy Support at 1500 points. Even if you are going for a gun-line, a Hammerhead can still be useful to provide that one little bit of mobilized hard hitting.

    Also, that seems like more of a Hybrid list to me. Yes, you have 300 points of Fire Warriors and 160 points of Broadsides, but the rest seems very mechanized to me with over a dozen XVs on the table.

    But, on to the list:

    The Stealth suits need some sort of a refined purpose. Since they all have to fire at the same unit you are stuck lobbing 12 S5 AP5 shots at something with armor, or two melta shots at basic rank and file infantry. Either drop the Fusion Blasters (which it looks like you can't since you have a severe lack of tank-busting) or put target locks on them. Unfortunately this means you need a battlesuit support system for the rest of your crew also, but there are ways to do that effectively.

    Your gun-line will be much more effective if you include some markerlight support. Since you already have a Devilfish in your list it will not be too difficult to bring in a squad of 4 pathfinders to give one of your gunlines a little boost. Or you could also light up some enemy tanks so your BS3 Melta shots can be a little more accurate.

    Other than that it seems like you have a clear purpose for the rest of your list, so I'll let others comment.
