Epic Armageddon: Knight Households 2.0 vs. Imperial Guard Steel Legion 3000pts

I got a great game of Epic in this morning against a local compatriot.  The battle report is over on the Taccoms forums:

That said, here's one of the photos that didn't make it into the report, from just before the last charge of the Light Brigade:


It was a fun game, and I'm starting to get the hang of this list.  Larger formations definitely handle better than smaller formations, and can absorb a lot more punishment.  That said, that only means that when the hammer does finally fall on the formation, it's a lot more likely to die spectacularly under the weight of all of the previously-suffered fire and blast markers.  It's still very much a gambler's list given the relatively low activation count, and as hard as I try not to get my battle line turned (and get cross-fired by formations that slip past my line of advance), the inevitable mid-game pivot to handle a break in the middle of the battle line can result in horrible losses.
