A question about balance Feb 17, 2021 19:33:50 GMT

I've been trying GF against my father. We've done 4 or 5 battles so far, and we really enjoy the game. We used to play Warhammer 40k when I was younger, and neither of us is a really good strategist, but we were matched.
The problem is that now, playing GF, I've won every single match. And some of them by a lot. I play Havoc Brothers and he plays Battle Brothers. To the first battles, he brought few units but expensive, and I brought more units but cheaper,
but he has been trying different armies, each one more similar to mine, until the last game, where we brought equivalent units:
Mine on the left, his on the right:
A Lord / Captain
A shooting unit of 5 havoc brothers / battle brothers
A melee unit of 5 havoc brothers / assault brothers
A unit of 5 havoc supports / support brothers
A shooting infernal brute / A balanced attack walker.
All the units that can have Chosen Veteran / Veteran Infantry, from both armies, have it.
As there's a bit of point difference, because of the weapon choices or something, I guess, all my units are Disciples of Plague and have Regeneration.
As I said, I've won every game. Most of them just were like 9-7 VP or so, but on the last one, which should have been the most balanced, I won with 7 VP and 17 (out of 18) minis alive, while he got 0 VP and only 2 minis alive.
I don't think he's a worse player than I am, and I don't think he lets me win, first because I'm an adult, and second because he was very frustrated by the end of the last game.
Maybe those armies are not well balanced? Does he have a bad army list, or maybe I have an overpowered one? Any advice?
Here's a picture of that last game at the end of round 1:
