    Personally I would go for an Orc Warboss as I really hate the Quell Animosity rule, with no Black Orcs your Warboss would chop through your best Orcs! You have already lost the Armed to da Teef rule in giving Gubbla Ulag's axe, so really you won't lose anything, except gaining a few points! This would save 28 points (An Orc Warboss can't have heavy armour, so give him light armour). Lose the enchanted shield as most things attacking your Warboss will require you to have a ward save. This would save 15 points. Go for Warboss Umm's Best Boss 'at for 30 points.

    Goblin Doom Diver Catapults cost 80 points. They cannot be given an Orc Bully. Save 5 points.

    Lose one of the Orcs as Gubbla will go in one of these units. This will save 6 points.

    Personally I would make this another unit of Night Goblins at most 30 strong. 40 is too large for 1000 points. 30 Night Goblins with hand weapon and shield, full command, Nets, and 1 Fanatic costs 170. This would save 10 points.

    Lose the extra wolf and crew. This will save 6 points.

    Total saving - 40 points
