Ok, so im not exactly an OnG player, but i do have experience with the, so ill give my input
Id say avoid a Black Orc boss for now, just a normal boss would be fine, and iirc there is a rather nice 15pt magic weapon that gives 3 attribute boni. Maybe that alongside an Enchanted shield, its good to keep characters cheap, especially in a horde army.
On the above note, maybe have 2 Lv1 NG shamen instead of 1 Lv2?
The Orc Boys, id say avoid the magic banner for now possibly (although tbh i cant remember exactly what it does off the top of my head). Drop the shields, go with dual choppers. Orcs have little armour, may aswell do what theyre best at and be offensive!
Drop the Bows from the NGs, poor range and extra pts cost. Nets are a nice addition if you can afford them.
Turn the Wolves into Spiders, move through terrain is awesome. Bows are the only upgrade spiders need (no command etc, well, maybe music..) Then your speed comes from changing the Orc Chariot to a Wolf one! Its impact hits (the main point of a chariot) are just as good.
I know you say youd like to keep the list as it is, and thats fine My comments are just to generate some thoughts/ideas, and accepting them totally would involve a rather large overhaul, so take what you like and leave what you dont
Yeah at 1000 points just take a regual boss light armor, shield, on a boar, take the +1 ws,S and I weapon and give him the 5+ ward save
The NG shaman is good for the points vale of the army
Get rid of the magice banners for teh orc boys useless this low point game and they shouldnt have them unless they are big uns anyway
The Night Gobbos are good but up the fanatics to 3
Change the Wolves to spiders
Drop the chariot wont do much for u this small of a game and its too many points right now
I like squig hoppers but make them 5 strong
2 Chuckas is good for this point game
