This Wednesday I am fighting a siege battle versus dwarves. We'll be using the sixth edition siege rules and the seventh edition Warhammer rules.
I will be fielding somewhere around 2500 points and he will have just slightly less than that.
I'm trying to get an idea of what to take for the battle. I think spider riders would be good because they can climb the walls. Also I think a unit of squig hoppers would be good and I will give them grappling hooks for one point each.
I am also thinking about taking snotling bases and giving them ladders per the siege rules. This will allow me across the field quickly and engage all of his gunners on the wall.
Other units I think I'll take will be two giants and aunit of orc big'uns with two hand weapons each, a banner of butchery and a battering ram. I would also like to bring some artillery. (Preferably two stonethrowers and bolt throwers but I would have to sacrifice the squig hoppers to do so.)
This battle is for a campaign so I don't have many characters and I don't have any lords as of yet. The two characters I do have are a level 2 Shaman and a black orc battle standardbearer. Both of which are on boars.
I have more than enough models to make almost any list, but I would just like some opinions from people who have played siege battles in sixth edition.
