Agianst Skaven Bubonic Court it should do very well.

But try get a Ward Save on your Lord to man points to just let die.

Good Luck

I hope I'm not too late...

Against bubonic court, you're bound to have some plague spells cast on your T3 units...Thus a dispel scroll or two is an excellent choice.

Plague censers will seriously hurt your elves as well, so a counter-plan is in order. The bolt throwers can kill a fair amount, but in bubonic court you might be seeing 50 of them!!!

Cauldron of blood is an excellent choice, as it's high toughness you'll be facing (armour saves are non-existent). Nurglitch himself is a pain in the **** to kill, mainly due to his special rules; plus, he's immune to killing blow!

Try to use frenzy to your advantage, don't let him lure you into traps and keep out of BtB of the censers!

Another suggestion would be to insvest in another unit of dark riders or two. (to bait chargers or flank charge robbing the rats from their rank bonus)
