Default mono-unit-army?

Maybe this ain't allowed following the Unbound rules, havn't red them. But, if you where to build an army out of one unit with all options available. Which unit would you take and why? For fun, to table the opponent or to win by objectives. Lets say at 1500p.

Myself would think it would be great fun to field 14 big meks all with SAG, cybork, and Eavy armour and ammo runt. To see that many random pieplates turn could spell disaster to either side.

This would lead to some really fun matches.

Example

1500pts of Hormagaunts against a gunline of Imperial guard. See what the outcome is.

IG would have an advantage with all those options available to their standard unit of Infantry platoon.

i'd totally go for three 20 man strong plague marines with 2 meltaguns. madness. but i guess that even a spam of 12 units of 5 noisemarines+blastmaster could be fun.

Dreadnoughts.

get ten of them,

seven with twin linked auto cannons, one with twin linked las, one ironclad with twin heavy flamers, and one venerable dread armed with what ever.

I shall call it: Dread squad!

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

I would take fragisos and some with blender fists. Maybe even a furioso Libby.

Chapter masters on Bikes! just imagine all the orbital strikes on turn 1 and at T5 no way to insta kill. lets not forget their movement range. Oh wait Bikes are relentless? yeah. just... yeah.

Oh i know its not really practical but my god would it be fun to watch for at least 1 turn.
