It looks pretty good mostly - not sure about some of the items though, especially the Ring on the sorceress? It'll render her fairly ineffective as a spellcaster - if you really want it in the list you could put it on the cold one champion, at least then you can keep it away from your own spellcasters.

If you drop the crystal midnight and swap caledor's bane for a lance you could get 5 harpies in there too, they're seriously useful - even if you only use them to distract anything heading towards your missile troops. A sea dragon cloak and regular shield might be better than the enchanted shield too? I also like putting shields on my rxb men but that's more of a preference thing - it means they can take a charge much better.

I think that's looking pretty good now I have to say, the only thing I'd worry about is high armour/toughness units - your cold ones and master are the only source of high strength attacks. That said you're not exactly short on quantity so that should be fine. Nice balance of shooting, magic, movement and hitting power I reckon - maybe when you move towards 2000 or 2250 or whatever you might think about a hydra, reapers, manticore, execs, etc to give you a dwarf/knight/chaos warrior/stank killer.
