I only use units who a see value in and are aesthetically pleasing.
i.e. I will not be using Virion because he does not catch my eye and he is an Archer. I did not use Moulder in FE8 because he doesn't look good and he is a Cleric (a class I'm not TOO fond of). --- - Taro Tanaka signing out Black 2 FC: 4170-2789-5384
I generally use most of the same units most of the time, but I do tend to change it up every playthrough. I'll also use theme playthroughs now and again, like my current FE12 game is almost exclusively Paladins. --- 8 more days
I use everyone evenly, but only in games where you can do so (Sacred Stones, Awakening). Otherwise I just don't play because I dislike being forced to choose my favorites and deal with limited experience. --- "The person who says that the only way to please them is to restrict options for others is, if you ask me, the one who deserves it least." - D.

"I use everyone and they must all be max level by the end of the game, no exception."
I generally do this :P- Although I usually normal level my main guys, and then I'd use a quick leveling cheat with Action Replay or something to get everyone else up to speed, that way at the end, I have a gallery of KILLING MACHINES(with the exceptions of a few prepromotes, but whatevsies).
Although, I did it legitimately in SS, and I have the feeling I will in this one too. --- --- Its all Greek to me dude. Yiassou
So far, I've liked to use everyone and max them all out, barring a few characters here and there that I will NEVER use due to my personal hatred of them. This game will be no exception, I'll use everyone BUT Ricken, Riviera, and Yen'fay. --- I am on the quest for teh mighty Cheese Puff! Join me!

I typically have a core group of units I like to always use, and then a few outliers I can switch when I feel like doing something different. Like bringing in Ilyana to replace a laguz royal in RD when I already have quite a few magic units just so I can use every SS tome
1st playthrough - Use who I like, unless they require heavy grinding, 2nd playthrough onwards (for games with support conversations) - Switch around to unlock as much "A" support conversations as I can in a playthrough. 2nd playthrough (for games without support conversations) - Use whoever is most efficient at clearing the hardest mode... and I usually stop there. --- "Cold water sinks and cold water rise" - A classmate, when asked about convention currents.

Where's the "I use the units I like"? I mainly just use a few of a certain class. For example, I don't use too many archers or cavaliers and if I get a new unit I like, I might replace one of my older units. --- Camelot asked for your support of Golden Sun 4! http://ipetitions.com/petition/operation-sunrise/ | http://facebook.com/pages/Operation-Sunrise/371417546251291
