I would not go that far. The asymmetric power of ranged warfare will still carry battles, and there are other single models than Cowboys.
I more meant that the current core rules don't reward piling a bunch of buffs onto a Halberd HI blob (fragility, immobility, etc.) in the same way that they reward effective use of quick, durable, hard-hitting solo models. As demonstrated by Jeff Keeling's solid results at TSC, you can take giant blobs of guys with buffs and, shockingly, just play well to win games.

@Optimistic C regarding the comment units being “trained peasants vs professional soldiers, per the background, the difference between off/def 3 and 4 is trained versus elite. And for humans, 4 is as high as a human can get without magical enhancements, therefore 4s represent the best of the best humans. So training peasants, basically makes them professionals or the equivalent skill, and no longer just peasants
