Congratulations dude! You'll save many tau lives with the drones! By the way, are the Crisis drones converted Remoras drones?

I do need some advice through; do you think I should put some sept markings on the weapons? (sides of those Missile Pods and Plasma Rifles)
I do have plans to put the blue electric glow in the engines at the rear of each of them, though do you think I should do the same in the 'nose' vents?

Blue glow is a good idea, but I'd pass on putting it on the front myself. If you do decide to do so, perhaps give the back ones a brighter effect, to imply forward movement. Maybe just paint the front a flat dark blue, like an inactive thruster plate.

I think I can speak for all of us here and wish you great success with this, and we're all looking forward to poictures of the entire force once you've finished.

The thing the bases need is a slight hint of static grass, bits and pieces.
And possibly a thin green wash on the rocks. Just to add a small amount of colour to them.
Normally on all my bases I add bits of armour, weapons, and paint them various greens, and greys and make them rusty just to make things stand out.

With the number of models you've got you probably want something quick and easy so...
Paint some PVA in patches on the bases where you want the grass to be, then sprinkle some grass-flock on. The PVA will dry clear and you can just shake the rest of the flock back into the container.
Obviously, have a practice on some test-bases first to try and weigh up how much grass you think you want per base etc.
Looking awesome so far though, with or without grass!
