How to make this army more effective? Skaven are easy to make effective and there is plenty of lists on this site to point you in the right direction.

For starter ditch the warpfire throwers...they have a tendency of hurting you more then your enemy. Ratling Guns will actually do more damage to your enemy.

If you really want to be effective I have two words for you "Warp Lightning".

Cool I think I'll ditch the warpire throwers and get another ratling gun and a warplightning cannon to keep the shooting power going. Thanks!

Ditch the stormvermin and plaguemonks for another unit of clanrats and 3 units of slaves (25+). Also, drop your rediculously over-priced unit of gutter runners and the rat ogres in favor of 3 units of giant rat packs. For heroes, ditch what you've got, get a warlord and a chieftain battle standard (with the war banner or something similar) and get 2 warlock engineers. If you want to be magic heavy (very popular) get a grey seer and 3 engineers. Only do that if you don't want your friends to speak to you again. Split your jezzails into 2 units of 5-as is they're sitting ducks.
That's a pretty classic skaven horde/shooty build. I'd be tempted to just get a massive amount of rats on the table and crush the opposition with weight of numbers. Either way, it might be nice to get a couple of small night runner/gutterrunner units to have about to eal with warmachines (although, you've got so many men it doesn't really matter).

I think I'm going to go with the idea of dropping the Stormvermin and adding more Clanrats with 3 Ratling Guns, 10 Jezzails, and 2 Warplightning Cannons I'm sure to do some shooting damage. Up close I'll now have 3 Clanrat units 30 strong and 1 unit of Slaves. I'm dropping the gutter runners, the stormvermin, and the plague monks along with my heros to take another unit of Rat Ogres and bulk both up to 4 strong. Finally I'm going magic heavy with 1 Grey Seer and 3 Engineers. I'll probably do like ether dude said and split my unit of Jezzails into 2 units of 5. The Doombringers are coming, beware!!!
