Looks pretty solid, though, I would consider taking Grand Theogonist Volkmar. You get all the basic advantages of the combo but with 12" radius of hatred. Also Dawn armor + Enchanted Shield gives a nice 2+ re-rollable armor save, and metoric Iron gives a 1+ armor save, they're both pretty cheap magical items.

The helblaster is fantastic but I personally prefer the helstorm for two reasons, less chances to misfire, and when it works it really tears things apart! Its especially good when going up against large amounts of infantry because the dual scatter will often still hit troops. If you still intend on taking a helblaster I would suggest you take a Master Engineer so that you can use the BS4 instead of the base BS3 (Pigeon Bombs are a personal favorite for an upgrade)

One thing that I've found to be a fantastic help in the few battles that I've fought is to at least have two 10 man units of handgunners to get the cheap hochland rifles to snipe off wizard characters or at least deny them certain areas on the battle field. Also another great unit that the empire has are pistoleers. A group of 5 can really annoy you're opponent. Having multiple shot 2 and armor piercing, they can help to dwindle heavily armored troops. lastly, Flagellants are not very popular but I've used a 15 man group to take down the Arachnarok Spider without much trouble.

Just some things I've learned as a newer empire player.
