OK, I love cavalry with Strakhov. Uhlans are turning into a "must" for me. The POW 16 charge (and they will get the charge), is just great. The Uhlans LOVE, just love, Occultation.
I want to try a min unit of Outriders as infantry clearing and magic attacks. Again, you will assuredly get the alpha with them.
I also want to try Fenris. I don't take him because he dies so easily, but the Feat gives him an 8" + 3" + 4" + 2" = 17" threat. OK, so you can finally get the alpha with Fenris...and then they HAVE to prioritize killing him. Maybe with the Spriggan + Outriders (who can repo away) clearing charge lanes with bulldoze, it will make it worthwhile to spend the 9 points on him.
