Default Ordo Hereticus as allies?

If I was to use the Ordo Hereticus, aka Witch Hunters, as allies, what should I use? Or is it a bad idea? I just want some good close up support units that aren't a one-hit wonder like Veterans are. I was thinking of using Sisters of Battle, but what else?

Inquisitorial Storm Troopers are always a good bet, as are Dominion squads (4 flamers storm bolters or meltaguns and up to ten battle sisters, all in a rhino) as are normal battle sisters squads.

take some Seraphim as the one Fast Attack ally you're allowed.
jump packs in a guard army, yes please! with a TL hand flamer, TL inferno pistol, and maybe an eviscerator too.

can be used to tank hunt, or to pop out and shoot as a rapid-response unit. Hit and Run is useful too.

Hit and Run is gorgeous if used correctly.

What WH units are good anti-power armor? I know there are Missile Launchers and Battle Cannons, but it feels more rewarding watching marines go down by the dozen without their precious armor saves.

well, you can take a SoB squad with 4 meltas in a rhino/ immolator.

but to be honest, a mass of sisters with bolters and a couple of flamers or storm bolters will kill a lot of marines.

ech. if you really want to bother with the allies forget the sisters and get some GK. maybe get a hereticus witch hunter lord so you can tack on an assassin, but GK always seemed to make more sense to me.
