I find one big block better than two little ones. 10 Orcs + enemy shooting = panic tests! Your general is only LD8 to begin with, and with so many units, you'll be spread out with some of them out of range and testing at LD7. You're even at risk of having an entire regiment wiped out by shooting if the enemy focuses fire. Now everyone in 6" tests, and when they flee, they flee from the spot the unit died, which means outward across the rest of your line, which means more LD7 panic tests. You can see where this is going =).
I know conventional wisdom in some armies is not to waste points on champions, but Orc Bosses are really good & cheap! That extra S can come in handy. People are often surprised by 3x S5 hits coming in off a unit champ. You at least need one to take challenges for the shaman.
