Default All Cavalry Army?

After a break from 40k, I decided I want to get back into it by forming a IG army but I couldn't decide what sort of theme I wanted to give it. Doing some reading on WW2 I decided I wanted to make an army based on Polish Cavalry units during that time period.

My question is: Is there a way to field an IG army replacing standard infantry platoons with Rough Riders, or would my cavalry be limited to Fast Attack options? And if I can't field Rough Riders as troop choices, how would you reccomend I go about fielding such an army?

There's always the Gland Warriors extra Doctrine, which gives your units the ability to Fleet.

Also, run a forum search and you'll find Wargamer's nicely balanced concept for mounted companies.

As far as simply taking Rough Riders as Troops... no.

You think you can help me out in finding this Mounted Company thread. I've gone so far as to search all posts containing the word Horse and havent come up with anything.

Then try "mounted company" perhaps?

I've always thought that using an all horse army would make a kick-ass doctrine. House rules, maybe?

That's Wargamer's take on it - search function found it with "Mounted Companies". The whole thread is worth a look for some insight.

Thank you for the help, I guess I missed it during my search.
