Going to battle a friend of mine this evening and he's probably running some kind of tournament list. I'll admit that he's a better player than I am so I need to have an army up for the task.

I try to keep my characters at a minimum and I'm thinking of doing the run-of-the mill bunker defence and hopefully get a hill to place some of my units/artillery on as 6th only allows one rank of shooting normally.
Str 7 Bolt Thrower is there to focus on possible chariots and any cold one knights that might appear.
Str 4 Grudge Thrower is for any bigger blocks of warriors/witch elves.
Quarellers are there to shoot of dark riders/harpies/shades as a priority and are probably going to win any hth combat with said troops. Thought I'd run a Ranger unit in case I get to place scouts first and push the inevitable shades back and off my warmachines as long as possible.
