Ok. So my opponent runs a heavy dwarf gun line most of the time, I know he will have at least a cannon, organ gun and grudge thrower all kitted out with a variety of runes. Beside them he will also have a unit of 20 cross bow men.

CC wise I know he loves hammerrers and longbeards so will most likely be running a unit of them each also.

He will also be running, Grimm burlocksson.

My initial idea was to use the death rockets to try and snipe the warmachines, although in order to effectively get a chance of this happening I need to keep my sorcerer prophet close to them to get re-rolls. This presents the problem although of him himself been sniped, hence the addition of the charmed shield. Any thoughts on whether I’m running a major risk here?.

The large unit of warriors with BSB will be used to tie up units in combat, with my centaurs and hobgoblins providing flank support (centaurs potentially heading for warmachines also)

The hero on wolf will also be their for war machine/ limiting march ranges of his troops if need be.

Any thoughts on what would be better?
