Personally I think Ushabti are a little underrated. Yeah they're not as powerful as the new constructs but they can be quite useful if used correctly. On the other hand, the Stalkers are my favorite of the new models, both in terms of looks and use on the field.
Ultimately both could be useful to your army. The Stalkers are ideal warmachine-killers while the Ushabti are great for supporting units and blocking the enemy from directly attacking more vital units, ie the Heirophant. I watched one game recently were a TK player faced a Skaven player. The Skaven player tried to get his Doomwheel to attack the Heirophant's unit but instead found his Wheel getting stopped by six Ushabti for several turns until it was brought down by Ushabti and a couple other units. Sure the TK player lost half of his Ushabti but loss was worth it in the end as the Wheel would have crushed his skeletons and his Heirophant.
