You have 2 formed units of clanrats at the minimum number needed for your rank (and therefore LD) bonus. As soon as you take a single casualty your rank bonus will drop by 1. Furthermore, you'll have opponents with smaller and/or faster units working around your flanks, charging your LD5 skrimishers, etc.

What sort of a game do you want to play with this army? Looks like it's sort of shooty, but I don't think you can do enough against many opponents to stop them from smashing through you by turn 2 or 3, IMHO. I think a unit of 10 jezzails is a bit risky in this army.

Two things I think I'd drop would be the Black Skaven from the tunnel team and the WFT.

I agree - drop the spears and bump the clanrats up to 25, get rid of the black skaven and lower the jezzails to 6 or 7.
