Depending on who you go against, 2 small units isn't going to last long at all. I wouldn't bother with the globe warlock, combine the clanrat (maybe drop some) and take some slaves, giant rats or rogres. I haven't played at this level much though but small units tend to run off or die too quickly.

Yeah, Skaven are THE BEST army at 100 points - but you sank way too many points into things not needed.

1) At 500pts your cannon is either useless OR will make the game horrible for the opponent - so I'd drop it.
2) You don't need the 2nd warlock - you need a BSB! Just simple BSB, no upgrades.
3) Make one clan rat unit big - at least 30 or 40, and back it up with units of slaves - 25 to 30 strong - this will allow you to field THREE large blocks, one is combat effective, in 500 pts!
4) Support stuff is fine, but do consider dropping that cannon
