Would I be correct in assuming that you are using the vast majority of your models and are stretching to reach your points?

oh no, i still have plenty of models. i own just about every model except for some special characters. I'm just trying to create a unique list

Well if you are building a list "for fun" I don't see why you need to post it on here. However if you are looking for tips on making a list to put the pain to warriors then I am sure people would be willing to help you.
I personally didn't like playing Empire for I found it boring, but I could share what I would have made to fight WOC.

First, add another two cannons, they are invaluable at taking down some of the monsters and monstrous cav you are bound to face. Next, drop 25 of the swordsmen, who are getting hit on 3s and giving up combat resolution each combat, along with the captain and the Lector, and throw in Karl Franz on a steed and a priest to go with the Knight bus.

Some one cut the brakes, because once that Ghal-Maraz rape train starts a goin' there's not much to stop it. Your opponent will think twice about smashing his chariots, Chimera or Skullcrushers into the Emperor's unit. Just hope he doesn't bring Archeon (which would make for a really neat and thematic battle, actually, albeit not in your favor).

Otherwise, you have a fairly good list.
