My birthday's coming up in a month or three, and I've decided to host a 'Birthday Bash', with myself against three of my friends. Less than half of this list is painted at the moment, but I suppose I'll be able to paint a bit more by that time (playing with unpainted miniatures is ok, ok!?). It's most likely that I'll be playing against 1500 points of skaven, 1500 points of beastmen, and 2000 points of orcs.

Nice list, you have limited magic to what you would see in a magic heavy 2K army, which means it will play a part but not dominate, good. 2 Steam tanks, i guess in a game this big its ok as the enemy will have plenty of things to take them on. your 5K army has 18 archers, 10 Handgunners and 1 cannon more than my 2K empire list, so your shooting is not over board and should give your enemies a deacent chance considering 2 of them are combat armies. You have some solid troop units although your lack of battle stadard bearer really weakens your combat units. I would maybe put one in at the loss of the captain with the silver horn, stopping a unit running away from combat is better than auto rallying it. Other than that i think you will have a close game on your hands depending on what the enemy takes.
