i think a slann and two EOTG's is a bit much magic for 2500. id drop an engine and maybe keep the priest with the skirmishers. in place of it id add a few salamanders/razordons or a cold one cavalry unit. also i dont think the stupid roll on enemy wizards is really worth while. drop the plaque and the stupid, and pick up the one that allows him to know all spells.

He has 5 spells already (4 + tepok) so I thought I'd try something different

thats fine, but the plaque is better served on a skink priest, specially when the slann can easily have all spells.

I have a few concerns with your list. Hope it helps.

- Movement
Besides the terradons and EOTG's you have slow movement. More time for the opponent to shoot, outmanuever and eventually flank you or even avoid you.

- Magic
Very powerful but you have way too much magic defense. DD 2 for pool, 2 for Slann, 2 from each priest, 2 dispell scrolls, becalming cogitation, Plague of Dominion partriarch in a pair tree. It's overkill even against Tzeentch or Vampires. I would drop dominion and give the scrolls to your Slann..much safer with him.

- Shooting
Where's the beef? You need more Skinks to weaken the enemy. You have only one skink unit to screen your big blocks. Get atleast 2 more skink units
either choice is fine. You also need atleast one other warmachine hunter. Don't count on one unit to do it all or you'll be sorry.
- Combat
Powerful on paper but with nothing to screen , redirect etc. you will be shot, redirected, outmanuevered and slowly taken apart bit by bit. Again get some more skink units. You won't regret it and it will help to set up your charges.

Also Harrowing Scrutiny really isn't necessary..ever ( maybe if the Slann was alone) . Terror US3 is not that big a deal and your TG are ITP and Stubborn ( as long as the Slann is alive ).
