At the moment I'm trying to brew a very competitive list in order to be able to grab the title for Best Orcs & Goblins General from the current holder. I want to be the boss I've seen a lot of lists, threads and discussions but still I couldn't find the right mix for me. Lately I have come up with the following list and would really appreciate if I could get some tips and pointers and ofc critics.
The list is as follows;
Orc Warboss General: Charmed Shield + DragonBane Gem + Additional Choppa. 128pts
LVL 4 Savage Orc Shaman: Lucky Shrunken Head + Fencer Blades. 290pts
Black Orc Battle Standard Bearer: Talisman of Endurance + DragonHelm. 155pts
LVL 1 Night Goblin Shaman: Dispel Scroll. 75pts
LVL 1 Night Goblin Shaman: Ironcurse Icon 55pts.
32 Savage Big'Uns: Full Command and Big Stabba + Additional Choppa. 407pts
40 Night Goblins: Netters, 3 Fanatics, Spear + Shield. 270pts
5 Wolf Riders **pts
5 Wolf Riders **pts
30 Black Orcs: Full Command carrying the Banner of Eternal Flame 405pts
8 Trolls ***
2 Goblin Wolf Chariots ***
3 Spear Chukkas ***
2 Mangler Squigs ***
I would have loved having the warboss as a savage one instead of a normal orc but there is no way i can get the point difference without crippling the rest. Both the general and bsb together with the LVL 4 go into the savage mob. This way I will have the 3 main blocks immune to animosity and the savages numbers goes up to 35 for a full 7 by 5 offensive formation . The trolls have to stay within the ld bubble but they can serve both as a hammer or anvil for the savages.
My main problem is: should I get rid of the chukkas in favor of a single Diver/lobba? should i downgrade the savages to normal orcs together with getting rid of the chukkas for 2 divers / lobbas? or should i keep it this way?!
I am really looking forward to your comments! Positive and negative are all welcome, I seriously wish to improve this
thanks in advance

Wolf Riders are super awesome, but without any extra gear, what are your intentions for them? With Spears they could do some flank damage. Are they just cheap and cheerful war machine hunters/'bait and flee' units?
Black Orcs, eeeeeeh. That's a massive points hole. A reliable unit for acting outside of the Leadership bubble perhaps but if you replaced them with more Savages or even normal boyz you'd have a significant number of points to spare. That's more a preference thing probably, but definitely something worth considering.
I'm currently not too keen on the Battle-mage Great Shaman build that everyone seems to be doing, but it must be good if so many people are using it so no fault there
Looks like a pretty schweet list overall!
The spear chuckas won't help you out in the long run. Go for a doom diver instead.
