If artillery could be organised into batteries where they had to be a certain distance close to each other and formed up into a unit to defend the group of war machines and could share crewmen if too many died on one piece would you put them together like this or leave them seperate?

Absolutely not. In a sense you could use a Daemon Prince or unit of furies to tie up all of the war machines in a Dwarf army. That would be disasterous to most dwarf players. It would have advantages in certain situations, however overall it would be rough. Picture 2 cannons getting tied up by 1 prince, he attacks with 4-6 attacks depending what he has, is strength 5 at least so you don't get a save and he's probably wounding on 3's. Most people take abilities that give them re-rolls. You could kill 4 dwarves leaving 3-4 left. Dwarf players turn (we're assuming they aren't out numbered and don't auto break) Your cannons are tied up and get killed in the 2nd round of combat. Not good. This could happen against to many armies too.

Not worth it, because of the reasons stated above, and even 6 dwarves will get easily killed by ranked up infantry, and some cavalry. Another point about the Daemon Prince is that with seperate units, he will most likely spend his next turn getting into position to charge you again. Nice idea, but it would probably be underused, though I do like the idea of replacing/sharing crewmen in a "battery".
