I play mechanised so I have a Valkyrie magnetised to be that or a vendetta.

Though at higher point I use a plasma cannon sentinal squad.

I've always loved the hellhound, it's been a staple of IG armies for decades.

the current hellhound and its varients are very effective even if the banewolf is slightly over the top. the vendetta will earn you much hatred.

I use a Vendetta/Valkyrie simply because i love the model.

However, a friend uses rough riders to great effect - using them as a suicide unit with hunting lances, just charge them into any expensive unit with good armour saves and/or toughness, and watch them inflict disproportionate casualties. (before being ripped to shreds)

Hellhounds are the Fast Attack of choice. Sentinels second.

Valkyries are only permitted if you are playing Air Cavalry (ie: you have no other vehicles).

Vendettas are never permitted.

Rough riders for sure. Cheap and Amazing for what they are. Never survive a game, but can nuke nearly any squad that makes it to your lines.

I take armored sentinels all the way! I frequently field a two-walker plas-sentinel squad with a single decked-out executioner. With a sentinel on either side I'm lobbing seven plasma pie plates a turn! It's way more fun than it should be... :P
