use bigger blocks of clanrats, 25 minimum trust me you wont have to deal with nearly as many break and panic tests, plus you'd have Ld 9, 10 if near a character. Get yourself 2-3 units and use the leftover points for 2 units of 20 slaves to soak up ranged attacks.

you need more plague monks to take the toughness test and with only twenty models as soon as you loose 10 of them your gonna start slowing down. and your going to have take a lot of toughness test due to the plague censer plague furnace combo.

IMO:

No block, other than slaves, should be less than 25.

Slaves should be 20 naked or 21 + mus . . . 25 max . . . no gear other than mus, ever.

WAW on engineer is a waste, as he doesn't get enough attacks to justify the points cost of the item.

Also, drop the spears on the clan rats . . . clan rats win combat by not dieing, not be trying (and failing) to kill stuff.

As above, for a horde army your units are too small, a few casulties and the Ld of your blocks will suffer, not too mention losing the "outnumber" factor, which Skaven should always have...

I've actually never played with Skaven but some opinions I got on your list:

1) The Golden Rule...no less than 25 rat strong blocks!

2) Spears could be ok for the low pts cost but still, if you drop the spears you could add more Clanrats.

3) Drop atleast the spears from the slaves & the champion.

4) Give your Grey Seer Skalm.

5) Drop 1 Scroll & the weapon on your Warlock Engineer & give him Warp-Energy Condenser & maybe a pistol/musket instead (maybe even a Death Globe instead of the 2nd scroll, but I'm not a big fan of scrolls:P)

6) Give one of the Stormvermin the Storm Banner instead & give your BSB another magical banner or magic items.

7)

Especially agree w/ #6 above . . . either the dripping death or the 2D6 hits banner would be good choices, IMO.

Those warpfire throwers are going to be the death of your army when they misfire and exploded in your army. I take a maximum of 2.

I would also say that you should lose the storm vermin and get clan rats instead. Get 1 or 2 Hellpit A-bombs or Doom wheels. You also need way more slaves i run 4 unites in 2000 points in 3000 i would run at least 5.

A lot of people speak very highly about giant rats now a day, either as a min max unit of 5 rats and a pack master for 23 points. Or the massive Skweel horde 30 rats 5 masters and Skeewl. Deployed right it can give you massive amounts of attacks and then you cast death frenzy on them.

Here is a quick example list that i did up. I kept Queek and some storm vermin for him, cause it looks like you like the unit.

Queek 215
Warplock Engineer, lvl 2, Dscroll 125
Warplock Engineer, lvl 2, Dscroll 125
Warplock Engineer, lvl 2, Dscroll 125

24 Clan rats, Banner, Shields, Doom flayer 171
24 Clan rats, Banner, Shields, Doom flayer 171
