The issues you face against brettonians are:
1) Highly mobile knights
2) Said knights get an obscene number of high strength attacks due to the lance formation
3) Said knights (and the rest of the army) will have a ward save against shooting

To address thes issues try:
1) not worrying about him charging
2) taking larger units to maximize static CR
3) if you want to shoot them, do lots of it

I'd strongly consider dropping the organ gun in favor of 2 bolt throwers. The bolt throwers have great range and can potentially kill 3 knights (3x3 lance formation) in a single shot. With engineers they'll have BS4 and still be cheaper than the organ gun.

The other key issue I see is the oathstone. While it looks cool and has some effectiveness, if you lock your one character in place for the remainder of the game, the highly mobile enemy can avoid him and pick the remainder of your army apart.
