Personally I'd drop the spears. Should leave enough points to add a wee unit of giant rats.

Definitely drop the spears. Also, the Engineer could just be level 2 with Death Globe. In such small battles, the chance of the Doom Rocket actually hitting a unit seems small - it is much better in bigger battles with many big units to hit. That, or no Death Globe and throw in some more Clanrats.

Drop poison wind mortar and doom rocket. Make both units size 30 and use leftovers for slaves. The smaller the game the bigger the number of skavens.

I would drop the spears and the doomrocket and make the warlock engineer a lvl2 and give him either a couple of warpstone tokens or some warpstone armour to keep him alive and maybe make some enemies kill themselves in cc with him.

I wouldn't even bring magic at such a low level. If he's willing to not play a clan skryre theme then this is the army list I took to an escalation game.

30 Clanrats with shields and spears
2 units of 20 slaves
1 unit of roughly 25 or so giant rats with 3 pack master's
engineer with doom rocket
chieftain bsb (potentially ward save)
