    Well, most people play a puritan army because you can take grey knights. Radical armies are few and far between, but if used correctly are devastating. The hardest part about them is the nature of the daemonhosts (random). Check out the DH TACTICA HERE

    Like Deus Mechanicus mentioned, it comes down to Grey Knights and Daemonhosts. If you prefer one, or only OWN one, then that settles it.

    If you have GK, I'd really use them - but that's only because I prefer them as well.

    If you have Daemonhosts and want to use them, you'll still have a weak(ish) army, unless you induct IG or SM.

    Letting us know what you have would be helpful.

    I personally use a puritan army as an attachment to my sms or ig. They are so much fun to play as this way because they add fluff and kill gapping weakness that both armies possess.

    Well, I would say proxy the radicals then. Try them out without having to purchase them. And if you already have Grey Knights, that kind of settles which army to play. You obviously were attracted to them in the first place so why not play them?

    If you play an imperial army attach those units to it and your set

    Well, your choice is Grey Knights or Daemonhosts, like everyone says.

    But Grey Knights are an entire army unto themselves (granted a lopsided one).

    Daemonhost are just daemonhosts. Ya, they're cool and all. But that's all their is, and you can have only three. The rest of your army is gonna have to be Inquisitors, storm troopers, and allies of one sort or another. All of which you can still use with GK (except reg space marines).

    The choice seems clear.

    well Gks can also be used as just one unit.

    for IG i'd reconmend only a 10 man GK normal squad as termies are expensive (and as guard players know 47 points spent on a termi is 47 points not spend on 9 guardsmen :p )

    But you're right the choice is pretty clear

    well lately ive got my hands on a witch hunter codex and its very tempting to switch to them and use my gk as inducted support troops.
