it looks good, but where is your hammer? you got a couple of big sized units of core, which you can use as your anvil, but then what? how do you kill him? maybe swap the reiksgaurd with a horde of great swords?

It looks pretty solid, though I would maybe look at bulking up both infantry units with extra numbers, if you can find the points and have the models. Might also want to think about putting the Knights and Steam Tank on one flank together, and using them in combination to grind through enemy units, turning the enemy flank much quicker and then coming back to aid your troops in the centre. The other flank could possibly be anchored by the Swordsmen, with the volley gun there to terrify any possible flankers from coming anywhere near it. You might even want to break that archer unit up into a unit of 10 and a detachment of 5, and send the 5 guys up field to play redirecting and delaying games.

Also, in my experience anything that hits an engineer is going to ignore an armour save, and once he's in combat no protection will save him. Maybe give the charmed shield to the warrior priest, who really needs the protection, and leave the engineer naked?
