You may find that only 2 Giant Rat Packs may be a bit light and easy to go down. I usually use 4 in a unit.

13 NightRunners is fairly hard to maneuver around and can run away easily, you may wish to split them into a 6 & 7 squads, one for each flank.

I am told that Rat Ogres are better with 3. But mine have always been killed so I can't really help you there ;)

Take more small Night Runners units (5-6 models, 3-4 units, no Nightleaders) to protect your troops from shooting and those nasty fanatics ;)

Rat Ogres unit should be bigger (3-4 models). Jazzails are more reliable when there are 8-10 models in unit.

Consider taking Warp-lightning Cannon (I love it).

I wouldn't take stormvermins and Gutter Runners. I don't like them because they are too expensive. Skaven army should be cheap and fast. But the choice is yours :)

IMO I think that you can never go wrong with massed clanrats and for 2000 pts I think you could use another squad of them. I'd suggest dropping the Rat Swarms and the Giant Rats and a few Stormvermin. I agree with all the other suggestions especially sqri's suggestion of beefing up your Rat Ogres. Other than that pretty good list.
