Sounds good to me. I really like the orcs. I always believe that an aggressive defense is best. It takes a certain unit layout to really use it well. Also keep in mind that you may be able to destroy siege equipment with your own counter siege equipment thereby keeping your units safe.

I was a really big fan of the stronghold series and I had some really offence defence strategies based around drawing the enemy close, springing traps and then rushing my melee shock troops out to mop the enemy's 1st wave (or whole army LOL) up.

I also think as an orc having two layers of walls would allow you to use your orc swarminess to your advantage... once they breach the first wall you can let your melee units flood out into the space between the outer and inner walls to carve them up!

From what I have seen in most game Orcs mainly focus on power over management. They would seem to be the very best at the early game since their tech is not as advanced but they don't need much to fight so they early tech is better than the early tech of man but as Man advances to better tech they outpace those of the orcs until the point that Orcs have to focus on power and numbers to win.

What's interesting is that I think orcs need more micro then any other race. From their epicly good formations to using the unit combos properly. Not for the faint of heart but quite possibly the strongest army correctly used. IE You're either good or really bad with orcs.

I think orcs shouldn't really have strong defences - they seem more berserk (or berzerg)

Orcs sound like a class that has a greater army population that fights in larger groups. While the individual troops may be bad compared to others, the cost of getting them isn't as bad.

Essentially they are quantity over quality with the majority of their units.
that's not such a bad thing.
