If you want a defensive magic/shooty army at 1000 points I would probably use a Warrior Priest and two level 2 Wizards. Pick out some magic items that have bound spells, this would probably flood your opponent with spells to try to dispel. Doomfire ring is always good!
Note: In games of 1000 points vs Dwarves you may struggle with magic as their extra dispel dice give lots of value in small points matches.
I generally play smaller matches and don't tend to focus on defensive gun line too much so any further advice would be me guessing
its a good gunline, My only questions would be about having 2 cannon, perhaps swap one for mortar, maybe. I would probably use fewer flagellants and boost my Greatsword unit to 20 instead. The wizard I would advise to ditch dispel scroll, purely on fact that you have 5 dispel dice, I would reinvest points from dispel and staff into Rod of Power, so you can either save dispel dice or power dice depending on if you are magic dominant or not, more flexible in a tourny list!
What are rough tactics, because the way i would use it, the knights + pistoliers go flanking and threaten the enemy rear (slowing their advance), whilst artillery find a nice cosy hill with greatswords + flaggies in front and handgunner on each flank,
