30k Imperial Fists vs Alpha Legion/Questoris Knights

I managed to have a 2500pt game against my friends Alpha Legion, bolstered with a few of my Knights to make the points. Normally I write a fair bit about these games, but I always forget to take notes, especially on the mission that we play (considering I just go for crushing victory and walk over my dead enemies, not surprising I don't remember). This time, however, I am getting lazy, and dead tired to boot, so I might just post some pics with a little commentary long the way. Hope that will be okay.

Here we go!

 Alpha Legion Deployment (I was amazed that they deployed for once!) The yellow units were lent/stolen by the AL for this game.
 My meagre force. Of course, in that spartan is Dorn and my Huscarls, plus a Primaris Medicae in Terminator armour. Veterans and breachers in the land raiders.
 I steal the initiative!

 The AL Siege Tyrants blow up the Veterans Land Raider with 20 Krak missiles.

 The Land Raider lines up on the lead Knight.

 The leviathan sees a target, but gets immobilised from the 20 Krak missiles from the Siege Tyrants!
 Breachers pop out in an effort to stall Dorn.
 Turn 3 sees all my units pop out. At this stage of the game, very little has died.
 Then down goes the first Knight Errant.

With Dorn and his Huscarls rippin into the breachers, who do a fair job of soaking damage, in that there is some left to run away!

 Lots of shots from the Siege Tyrants and another tactical squad Furying of the legion, take their toll on Dorn's Huscarls.
 My turn 4.

 Despite strapping 10 melta-bombs to the land raider, I do 2 hull points. Not quite what I was hoping for. Dorn and the Huscarls rip the squad apart and consolidate towards those thrice cursed Siege Tyrants.
 My other land raider pops the last Knight.

 The tyrants, Dynat and the AL tactical squad all charge Dorn and his unit.
 Dorn takes some damage, but deals enough back to send the tactical marines fleeing.

 The veterans charge around the land raider to help out Dorn and the Huscarls. Which proves enough of a tipping point that they flee off the table.
 This sneaky squad moves behind my lines for the objective, and all I can do is shoot 2 lascannons at them a turn, which proves to not be enough.

The game ends in a very slight win to the Imperial Fists, only through attrition. We both help objectives, and both either got slay the warlord or first blood. A very close match.

Thanks for looking.
