First off, your list is illegal, as you can only have 4 total characters, and unfortunately Black orc bosses count as two choices.
Also a wyvern can be a bit of a point sink in an army of 2000 pts, recommend changing to boar mounted or on foot, having your general fly around causing terror and wrecking havoc is a lot of fun, but not nice when he gets routed or killed early on in the game (speaking from personal experience here!
I would include more n.gobbos (if you have the minitures) and some spear chuckas. Fanatics are great to hold up the enemy and cause lots of damage!
I take it you are going to use the snotlings as a holding unit? good tactic to employ on the enemies best units!
Overall, recommend dumping the wyvern, adding some more goobo units and possibly some more boyz.
Hope this helps
That 30 orc unit could be better off with add handweapons or spears. The choppa-charge isnt that good, if you are lucky enough to get it at all. Orcs has not the shield and handweapon-bonus ( your boyz now has 5+ arm.save) like the other troops just because GW thinks that + 1 str on the charge is so huge. The boarchariot will be fine if supported by one of the larger units. Do not charge with it on its own, I have made that mistake. Or, you could use two wolfchariots since they use up only one spc.choice. But its boring to paint two of the same, Im actually painting the second wolfchariot right now and I cant say its fun.
Azargh is perfectly right about the black orc characthers. But.... I wouldnt be so fast on dumping the wyvern. Its a nice model and great fun to use, but if you know that you will face dwarfs or the umies then the wyvern is perfect. For them. Remember that a flyer can fly and then turn on the spot ( very useful if you wanna charge units in the rear).
Im impressd that you are taking that amount of snotlings. Painting all thoose little green guys is a little piece of hell, but its all worth it when the opponent curses the little snotlings for totally paralyzing his 400-points unit of knights for the entire game. Have fun!
