You got some wasted points in there. Unless you max out your elite slots, don't pay an extra 10 for the bodyguards. Just join a two man unit. Also, I think you mixed up multi-trackers and target arrays. Multi-trackers allow you to fire two weapons, while target arrays give the model +1 BS.

Other than that, I'd get another Railhead. One will draw every anti tank gun in your opponent's army. Even with a 3+ jink save, it won't last long. Also, there is no reason to ever take kroot when you can just ally with Orks. The Orks are better in every way possible. But, before you do that, you need to get some more suits into the army. These and fire warriors are the meat and potatos of the army. Fire knives (plasma rifle/missile pod) and Helios (plasma rifle/fusion blaster) are the ways to go. Don't bother with the s5 shots on the suits. You got plenty of that from the fire warriors. These suits will kill MEQ and TEQ dead.
