I dont know what impression you two or under but you by no means have to play the race to post in its specific forums. And yes,skaven is an amazingly good army
Put lots of gutter runners on your flanks as he will probably employ a lot of dark riders to out maneuver you. Remember that skaven's LD is as bad as goblins if they get flanked. Also I suggest you use lots of rat ogres, stormvermin, and warpstone throwers, you have got strength on your side as you will not be facing anything with more than toughness three (excluding war hydras, etc).

Skaven is what myself and my friends would call a "bent" army. The actual troops are rubbish but you can have great things like ratling guns, against toughness 3 troops you will mow them down horribly. Also Skaven magic does shed loads of damage, warp lightning for example doing 1 or 2 d6 str 5 hits. Wrong wrong wrong. Not to mention Jezzails and warp lightning cannons.

What I love about skaven is the havoc that they can cause in an instant.(keeping in mind that the havoc often affects themselves.) Still, I think that this is awsome. With that in mind, I would take the screaming bell. Dark elves can't really afford to take heavy damage, because their models cost so much. So the bell can be potentialy devestating. And if you roll lucky with it, you can take out those bolt throwers which would probably be hating on the rat ogres u need.
As for the ratling fun, I mean gun, I have the same seniment. All though it can go whack, it can truly wreck on dems T3 elves. One took out my entire unit of shades in a single round as I recall...
