As a woodelf and former dwarf gunline player, that says a lot, both of whom do gunlines better than empire. It is an awesome theme, and just removing dozens of models for turn and turn isn't fun for him, or for you eventually.
I do intend on my cavalry (lancers) having a big part to play, having gained a little gaming experience alately i completely get your point about just deploying and rolling dice being very poor game play, for both sides.

Plus, bayonet charging infantry should provide hand to hand shananigans.
