One take on Warhammer Tactics is MSU or Multiple small units. The idea being that having multiple small units is better in many ways than having a few large units. For example having two units of 5 knights is better than having 1 of 10. You increase your fighting frontage to 10[unless you had your 10 knights wide instead of ranked] giving more attacks. You can flank units easier. you have 2 targets for your opp to deal with. You create less "meaty" targets for opp's magic or warmachines. You can engage more than one enemy at a time[if you really need to].

The key to making it work is to support your units, and get yourself into a dominant position before you engage. you shouldn't charge a large ranked unit of infantry until you can get in those flank and front charges at once.

funny you should say that mate, I was just about to try that one out facing vampy counts in a week or so, oh sure i know they're scary in large numbers but the knights are buff.

Armies with lots of knights or chariots do well with MSU tactics, the key is support. Anytime your opp can charge he should be threatened by a rather nasty counter charge.
