Unfortunately, taking an ally does not give you anything from that list except the troops, so you don’t get access to either the extra initiative nor the strategist. 

The LI have several roles:
  • Their most important role is to act as a screen, protecting the Impetuous HI from shooting, while possibly inflicting hits on their opponents. The HI are your main weapon and need to fight at full strength, preferably against weakened enemy. 
  • LI javelin fight well in difficult terrain. Their secondary role is protecting the flanks of the HI. (You should go for as much difficult terrain as possible!)
  • LI javelin also help against elephants. 
  • Finally they are a cheap boost to the break point of the army. 
As for the Medium Cavalry, it is tempting to use them as a corps, but MC have no protection, which makes them very vulnerable to shooting. As a result they don’t make good frontline units and usually die quickly when used aggressively.

But much depends on your own style of play, and the armies that you expect to face. Taking the Gauls for their MI instead of a small MC corps can work. However, they fight in ways that are different from the HI (or MC), which changes your strategy and therefore the terrain (type, size and amount) that you want to use.

Ugh, thank you! Downgraded the allied strategist to brilliant; bought a sixth LI.

Still an improved initiative of 3. Should help me get the woods on the table, and have some MI to take advantage of them.

Still unsure why you are prevented from taking the Strategist - seems an 'unusual' restriction. However, taking a Brilliant general (or two competent ones) along with at least two LC will give your army an initiative of +2 (it becomes +3 with the Strategist). Check the army initiative rules p22

Since the Germans only have forests, this gives your opponent a problem if he wins the roll-off; he may attack you in forests (which you want), or let you attack him in his own territory (which limits his options slightly).

However, you should anticipate being forced to attack in plains or steppes (which provide open terrain), where you should choose three pieces of terrain including a coast / river against which you anchor one flank of the army (four if you have the strategist), which gives you a single option to move the piece that is most in your way.

Question regarding the 'All Heavy or all Medium'
The German list is made up of of many Tribes yet none can be Allies ?
Surely a Batavian tribe (Medium Swordsmen ) could be an Ally with Teutons ( Heavy Swordsmen ) ?
A Command of rough going Warriors would be a good mix me thinks.
