i love using a hell fire Inq Lord build Psycannon and plasma cannon and heavy bolters and mystics&/ sages (yes please step out of you cover save mr. eldar)
(I some times use two of these builds: I lord & ret and elite Inq & ret but then i have to forgo having termies so....mmmm)
snipe (although 1 or 2 bad rolls make u feel cheated)
(previous version i would not leave home with out my callidus ...even in 40k in 40 min i miss those days)
i find the snipe really freaks people out (somewhat unness.ly) they tend to hold their special characters behind cover etc. wasting their potential even though he is not as deadly as they think...a little psycological warfare on my part.
2 x full GKPA squads - mastercraft and targeters for justicars
1 smaller GKPA squad (if no termies)
2 x Stormies (5 man with 2xplasma) with rhinos(+xtra Armour & smoke) for my GKPAs to steal for a round or two
(or march up behind while the rhinos draw fire/block LOS if i feel my stormbolters will )
Dreads x 2 : TLLC & ML combo(i see quite a lot of Necrons these days)
Regarding my favourites...
if i do want to work in termies i steal some points from the GKPAs and drop 1 stormie squad and their rhino and run a BC with a small squad
my lists basically run along these lines

I love the Inq.+retinue build too, but I think 2 squads is one too many... static Storm troopers are probably more profitable with plasmaguns so they can sit on the objective.
I have somewhat a love/hate feeling for the vindicare, he can make single kills that really hit the enemy player hard, on the other hand it can be embarassing when he fails the whole game.
Nice ideas for 1500pts but I think you should change the two dreadnoughts for a Land Raider because they are 2tllc and machine spirit inside a very hard nutshell with transport.
I might write like a ork but i fight like a poet.
Some one tell me they have ever seen a nightbringer die from a Nemesis Force Weapon.
I was under the impression that GK could no longer pinch ISTs rhinos now as theyve been re dedicated (5th ed faq).
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
For the vindicare, i've read elsewhere that rather than targeting the HQ choices and other 'high end' characters you want to try and hit squad leaders, sergant types etc, although they won't swing the game decidedly in your favor the loss will still be felt by the opposition much more than you emptying mags into a seemingly bulllet proof HQ.
I have to agree with 'image vertification sux' in the fact that 2 inqs could be overdoing it a little. The use of plasma in ISTs will hurt more.
I have to admit the psycological warfare bit with the vindicare sounds great and for holding the more ugly members of the opposition at bay.
hope this helps
Besides the fact that i dont have the model for the L raider (yet)
or crusader( best in my opinion,packed with some termies....real eggs in 1 basket)
i hate the point sink....
but that said i have run 1 or even 2 in a game here and there
as re: the 2x =][= squads
Two hellfire squads can clean house vs troops , prevent deepstiking pain (vs swooping hawks and necron loards and the occcsional termies) and take out some monsters along the way with a few 6 rolls here and there, allow me to defend my home objective with just 5 reg stormies.
also they tend to get a lot of focus....more room for the rest of my guys to get closer
36" range is also not a bad thing.
i dont do it often maybe once every 2 months but it can be fun.1/8 games
i often play eldar with thir dark lances....mmm hate those things (about1/every 3 games)
also coming face to face with walkers and harlies(only inv svs)
doing this has also taken the nightbringer out of consideration that my 1 opponent used to love playing...he uses it much less often now (much like i do the 2 x hellfire =][=)
[ i have begun to scratch building a Land raider anyway...3/4 done...but a bit oversized (it actually fits my termies inside) ...may have to run it as a superheavy, of some sort, for Appoc. games]
