I would cut your PCB's either to 2 5 man squads or down to 7 or 8 max. I generally don't go any higher. You also dont have much that is hitting hard. I would drop a unit of monks for clanrats with a weapon team. Poisoned Wind Mortar would fit best and hit hard. The catapult is really, really cool. BUT you are going with massed infantry incombat which means by turn 2 or 3 you won't be firing it. And if you do you'll be hitting yourself a lot, and it will hurt.

I love the Catapult, but find more often than not it ends up being a bit useless. It's not a bad 100 pts though.

The one thing you don't want to forget is Skaven are designed around clanrats. So taking a unit or two will not necessarily make your army un-themed. All clans are made primarily of them.

With all yolur frenzy and hatred too you are going to be baited and led around the table, losing your oh so necessary ranks when you are flanked. Then you lose combat, and if you don't run you lose the frenzy. I a unit of clanrats could help to control that.

Just my thoughts though. I love Pestilence and my army has always been themed around them. Just be careful - your army only does one thing right now and if you lose that you're toast.
