Okay skaven is a very old book, so theres some things that you need to know

Warlords suck, only take one if you want to give him the fellblade (hes a suice character with a sword that slowly kills him but its rediculously powerful)

globardiers will almost never kills stuff worth killing unless your opponent has tons of knights.

your cheiftain and grey seer should go in the clanrats and hide their all game, never get that unit in combat. Stormbanner is a good choice but you dont necessarily have to take it.
jezzails will almost never kill anything either, and they panic off the board from literally anything.

Rat ogres suck in general because they will die SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO fast to literally anybody and their LD sucks, a unit of 8 is probably a minimum for them to actually get to do anything.

clanrats are seldom taken except for use as bunkers or a way to bring more weapon teams (so if you are using it as a bunker, then thats good)

slaves are optimal at 50 models each, and no one EVER takes the slings, you will never hit anything even with 200 shots. So take nothing on these guys, just hw no armor.

stormvermin are awesome, take a magic banner (razor banner or stormbanner) and 40 guys is a little small, probably the minimum people use.

never take warlock engineers for their spells, you dont need those spells, what you take them for is giving you magic items: death globe, DOOMROCKET (every skaven army has to take this), etc. You could get away with a single guy with lvl 2 upgrade and doomrocket, but most people take:

warlock with doomrocket = 45 pts
warlock lvl 1 with dispel scroll = 90 pts
