Me (bretonnia) and my empire friend are fighting an army of chaos, tomb kings and orcs. We believe we have some good tactics and that our artillery can flatten there men.
Does anybody have suggestions which may aid us?
it is a 3000 point battle.
I dunno, if they got cheesey with it the orc could bring only goblins to swarm you, the chaos only demons to out quality you, and the khemri enough magic to make a casket pretty nasty. I'd be careful if these are good players. In other words I'd bring a good amount of peasents and empires equivalents myself if I were you. It sounds like swordsmen will actually do well here.
Do not rely on your artillery, there will be to much coming at you to do much effective damage. Your enemies comprise of fear infantry, medium infantry, and heavy infantry so light weapons such as bows are not going to be very effective. (Your outdone in close combat as is, if the chaos player goes tzeentch then you've lost magic as well.)
Depending on what you have in your lists, it looks from words alone like shooting, decoys, and countercharges will be the only way you can win this fight...
Grail knights lead by a grail paladin may be a good idea, while a unit of handgunner per other unit in your friends army would be good as well. If he has the models to do that of course.

We are using a hellblaster and steam tank
i am using pegasus knights as well as kotr and grail knights
I am using a lord which will do well against chaos i think
The khemri are not using the casket of souls
Just make sure you have plenty of LQ cheap units to compliment anything expensive thats really going to be key.
btw i would like to say that me and my friend won the battle easily! Thanks for your help
