Storm banner on storm vermin? You don't have any troops to counter war machines so I think it a must buy.

Hardly cheesy, you are fielding 3 expensive blocks. Its a very low wound count for 2500 skaven.

Doesn't look very cheesy to be honest. I think there's a lot of room for improvement in the list.

You're missing a storm banner, the doom rocket, one hellpit instead of two. You have a second unit of plague monks instead of the gutter runners, your slave units aren't 50 models each and seem to be lacking musicians. Its not that cheesy to me, but it depends on the power level that your friends and local gaming groups are running.

a 30 man unit of plague monks with the plague banner can do some heavvy damage to any t 3 armies...when high elf elites rip a chunk out of them they will rip the same size chunk back out....the storm banner does seem like a must even if it only lasts for one turn. scounts dont seem as affective in 8th edition. i get your point for taking out war machines and other shooting units...where do you suggest i drop the points.

My point with the plague monks isn't that they're bad, just that your list isn't what I would consider cheesy.

I would drop the second plague monk unit, some of the storm vermin, and doomwheel in order to free up the points for a second hellpit and some gutter runners. Also throw in a engineer with a doom rocket. But that's only if you're okay with running what some will probably consider a "cheesy list."

I'm not sure if you're asking if your list is cheesy or not or if your asking how to make it cheesier.

If its the first one then i think your list is fine.

If its the second blue mage has hit the nail on the head:
-add a second HPA
-add a WLC
-give your grey seer a power scroll so he can force the 13th spell through once per game.
-doom rocket
-storm banner
-brass orb
