My favorite combination is:

Infantry/Spearman: Stark Spearman, Veteran Unsulied, Stark House Guards, Giants, Veteran Gold Cloaks, Hedge Knights

Archers: Faceless Man, Elite Night's Watch Archers, Elite Tiger Cloak Archers

Horse Archers: Fireborns, Sand Cavalry

Skirmishers: Kraken Guards, Spies

Cavalry: Red Cloaks, Knights of the Gate, Stark Cavalry, most of my companions after some time...

As for Fireborns I allways get them from bandits or from Dothraki/Volantine castles/towns allways as prisoners... I hold them in some feft until I got a reasonable amount of them, only then I bring them to the battles.

Fireborn being the last tier of Red Priest unit are found in Essos, usually you can't recruit them so you'll have to either: chase bandits in Essos who might have some as prisoners, or attack their parties in mainland Essos and sometimes also sailing the coastline. Attacking them will cause your relationship with R'hllor followers bad, and if you plan on becoming monarch it's unwise to provoke the faiths.

Red Cloaks are strong, as are the Vale Knights, but they're not necessarily the best options unless you can employ large numbers of cavalry permanently. The reason for that line of thinking is that they're wages are really high, and also because against other cavalry having cavalry units that employ polearms is a deciding factor since a well put couched lance is an insta death strike.

Indo95, to me they're great, the Tiger Cloaks, their defense is indeed a bit low, but they're cheap on the wages and are very good at killing. You should employ a good shieldwall formation of infantry or spearmen (better if it's heavy) so they're not vulnerable to pincer attacks.
Can you explain the consequences of provoking faiths as a monarch???

My favorite combo is an a 200 man army of mostly Vale cavalry mixed in with some red cloak knights and Reach sworn swords :D

But of course northern infantry, Unsullied, and Vale units make good infantry

And for archers of course I try to train up Riverlands rangers mixed in with some Westerlands arbalesters, of course.

Reach longbowmen are cheap and good enough. Dragonstone archers aren't bad when compared to price.

For Faceless Man u have to own Bravos,but they are expencive as hell
For Kraken Guards u have to own Pyke

As for the Fireborns... No, I don't besiege towns just to get them, but I besiege those towns only when there are some Red Priests, and of course U have to have large army to do this ;) rebelling with Blackfire can help with that.
