I know you may find the Tyranids physically repellent to look at but believe me, you don't want to let them out of your sight.
If you change the Bodyguard for a standard Shas'ui Elite XV8 you can save sufficient points (20 of them) to give your non-mounted Fire Warriors a Shas'ui Team Leader with a Bonding Knife, thus raising the Leadership value of the unit and the benefits of the BK as well. Of course you could change the load-out of the model to gain even more points - a Deathrain+ = 53pts, for example - but the AP of the Plasma Rifle is nice to have around!
Having said that: the TLFB suit is going to be up close and personal with the enemy, so using the points to give him a Team Leader upgrade and a HWDC with a single Shield Drone would be useful for his survival. However, I would still opt for the Shas'ui Team Leader with Bonding Knife option because, well, you want your Troops units to be able to hang around as long as possible, and that Bonding knife will help you do that (if the unit isn't blown to kingdom come entirely, of course!)
