If its true that the new knock down changes doesn't only apply to lords and heroes but all units like spearmen then that means it will be extremely difficult to engage and disengage with units like Chariots and Cav. It will be much harder to push through the front line with monstrous infantry. As a result it will be easier to defend gun lines from those things. I think this will shift the meta in favor of gun factions like Dwarfs, Skaven, Empire, and Coast and to a lesser extent the Elves.
And it will adversely effect rush down factions. Beastmen, Norsca, Vampire Counts, Warriors of Chaos, Bretonnia
