That actually also leaves you more than enough money to buy a barge or some other really large vehicle to mount your nice giant siege cannon on, carry your minions and party members around and... Well, you catch my drift. For the cost you gave that thing you can get a better weapon, flunkies and a boat.

Heck the siege weapon also saves you a feat since it doesn't need EWP.
Keep in mind that Heroes of Battle also provided rules for enchanting siege weaponry. You can make auto-reloading engines that have enhancement bonuses. Very handy things to have around.
