A nice start. Good, fast poke with the Drones and Prince while Typhus and his zombies walk up the field, and good support from the Helbrute.

 

Only issue I see is that Blades of Putrefaction is more or less useless in your army. The ONLY weapons in your list it gives those juicy, bonus mortal wounds to is Typhus'  and the Drones' probes. This power really shines when cast on melee Plague Marine squads, or Blightlord Terminators who are all dishing out lots of Plague Weapon attacks. I don't think Typhus has enough attacks to really make it worthwhile if he were casting it on himself. And it's completely wasted on the Prince (no Plague Weapons). Only getting the +1 to wounds is meh when there are much better options in our psychic powers.

 

I'd suggest Putrescent Vitality on your Prince to turn him into an even scarier beast, and Plague Wind on Typhus to make him more of a mortal wound generator.
