It'll take awhile to build up the barracks and get everything you need, in the mean time you can build some scouts and see what your target has. They may acquire assistance from an alliance, but the risk is low, I mean, all they can really do is kill the troops, break the seige and reinforce the target, they're unlikely to raze your city since you've only got one, an alliance that would do that wouldn't be white knighting in the n00b ring.

Look for a decent sized city, at least 15k pop, scout it with as many scouts (t2 are best but t1 are fine for now) as you can muster, you'd be surprised how few players have enough troops to defend themselves from even mild aggression. Get a few million gold from GC, buy some equipment and build a couple thousand troops, your gold will go negative quick though so find a source of income, hides are a good choice or mooch off a big alliance.

A decent sized alliance can speed up this process for you and help you with the seige, most will encourage you not to go after live targets but not all of them... Almost all large alliances will have inactives that you can capture if you'd rather go that route.

If you are in Broken Lands, you might want to hurry up with your siege because Kaggen of Loki is going about squashing sieges that are taking what he regards as too long.
