wait... I thought Frenzy means that you have to make them go towards the enemy... better check the book...

Nope, just have to declare a charge if someone is in charge range and I have the handgunners picking off people coming up to them anyways.

ok well here's my two cents:

there's too many Religious people... swtich one of them with a Wizard with the Lore of shadow since you're planning to go all out with infantry (it'd be funny to see a wizard suddenly turn into a Warrior Priest in close combat wouldn't you agree?)
I'd also switch one of the Cannons with a Mortar...

Kiras is right on both accounts. A mortar is invaluable and the wizard would be better than a priest. only 2 combat units don't seem enough to me either, you seem to have spent too many points on toys and not enough on bodies.

Took out a cannon for a mortar, made the DW WP a level 2, but went with life to keep my stank healed, just for a test, but if it's not needed in my test run on thursday, ill go shadow like you said.

As for 2 combat units, keep in mind they are both horde formation. The STank + WAltar chew up a lot of points by themselves, but in my experience, they chew a lot of face too and are worth it.

well in my (I'll admit limited) Knowledge of the General Lores, each one is tailored to a play-style... look around the lores and see which one's you're more likely to use in your army...

for me I preffer the Lores of Shadow, Light, Beasts or Fire... basically because they're very helpful in most situations. Though Light is more useful against Daemons and Beasts on... well beast men....

the Other Lores are good too... I'm gonna try the Heavens sometime but I hate all the guess work involved in some of the spells (the comet of Cassandora is more or less based on luck really... but boy does it hurt when you get lucky...) I tend to avoid life because it's too popular and that ticks me off...

on Hordes... be careful on what you do with them... remember that they have a big footpad and can basically run amok and cause large scale panic... the spells from the War Altar will do you some good... good luck with that list
