Run gutter runners with poison and slings. They are expensive but autowound war machines and can be deployed as scouts.
Run large blocks of slaves and clan rats rats. Normally, you would like to run hellpit abom, warp lightning cannons, and doomwheel but the cannons, if he knows how to play dwarves, with rune of forging and possibly flaming rune will chew up your rare units. It miight still be worth warp lighnting cannons to take out his larger warrior blocks.
Consider running small units of giant rats to attack war machines and act as screens and chaff units and flankers.
Run a large unit of plague monks with the plague banner. Popping the plague banner will give you re-roll to hit and wound.
Always run grey seer and a BSB chieftan.
A lot depends on the sizeof the battle. If you are at 2500 points, adding a lord on a palanquin carried by stormvermin with other tricker's shard, a decent armour and ward save and good weapon can take on enemy characters and act as a character killer as well as protect the grey seer.
