Looks like a solid list! If I understand correctly you have the Longstrike paired with the Hammerhead, the Breachers and Darkstrider in the Devilfish, as well as deep-striking Vespids and Commanders? Longstrike isn't uncompetitive, but there are a few things we need to fix, I think.

First, Darkstrider only buffs one squad per turn, so using him with a 10x squad of Breachers is a bit more efficient. Second, with two Hammerheads and a bunch of Seeker Missiles, I think you will want to focus more on Markerlights- you probably don't need those two Ion Rifles. Finally, you can probably add another Fire Warrior squad to get the Battalion back again.

Here's the list with a few modifications:

-

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Darkstrider (45)
HQ - Longstrike w/ Railgun, 2x Seeker Missiles; 2x Gun Drones (201)
Troops - 10x Breachers (80)
Troops - 5x Fire Warriors w/ Markerlight (43)
Troops - 5x Fire Warriors w/ Markerlight (43)
Dedicated Transport - Devilfish w/ Burst Cannon; 2x Gun Drones (127)
Elites - 3x Stealthsuits w/ Fusion Blaster, 2x Burst Cannons (101)
Fast Attack - 6x Vespid Stingwings (90)
Fast Attack - 6x Vespid Stingwings (90)
Fast Attack - 5x Pathfinders w/ 5x Markerlights (40)
Fast Attack - 5x Pathfinders w/ 5x Markerlights (40)
Heavy Support - Hammerhead Gunship w/ Railgun, 2x Seeker Missiles; 2x Gun Drones (181)

Total: 1433 - Command Points: 7 (1 Battalion Detachment, 1 Outrider Detachment)

[List Incomplete]

There's still a bit of room to grow, so what other models do you have? Also, what will the function of the Stealthsuits be?

Anyway, what do you think?

I very much like the changes you have made.

You are correct saying longstrike with the hammerhead, darkstrider and breachers in fish and commanders with vespid.

I didnt think about darkstrider buffing only one unit, i was thinking for moral but i agree the bigger unit is better that way.

I have stealth suits because i think they can annoy the opponant and the minus 1 to hit is nice. But if you think theres something better im all ears. Can i ask did you remove the ats off them for any reason? Would you consider putting a homing becon on them purely as a distraction, if the opponant knows i have a homing becon in my army he will focus on them and possibly save other units? I know its dedicating 130 ish points to purely a distracted but could i work.

Heres a list of what i have that i havent included.
Farsight.
1 fireblade.
15 firewarriors.
10 gun drones.
5 shield drones.
2 Xv8 teams magnetized.
1 hammerhead
1 Devil fish.
4 piranhas.
3 broadsides. 2 rail 1 missile.
2 riptides 1 ion 1 burst.
3 sniper drones.
1 marksman.
30 kroot.
