It's my first try at Orks, and I just whipped up this list:
x 25 Slugga Boyz
x25 Shoota Boyz
2 grot prods
Total= 500 pts
Thanks, any advice welcome as it is my first (Ork) list!
Can you have a shoota and a big choppa at the same time? It might be possible, but I'd never give a warboss anything besides a powerklaw. Against marines and monstrous creatures, it's literally the difference between victory and defeat. Also, you should always give warbosses a cybork body. It's more important than 'eavy armor.
The units of boyz each need a powerklaw in them. I'd attach the warboss to one, and give the other a nob with a powerklaw and bosspole. I usually don't give special weapons to the units of slugga boyz, since they're usually running.
Here's how I'd play your list:
Warboss with powerklaw, cybork, bosspole 
24 slugga boyz 
24 shoota boyz w/2 big shootas, nob, powerklaw, bosspole 
16 Grotts w/runtherd 
In any case, good luck!
