I've always been a fan of Weirdboyz, as long as they're upgraded to Warp 'eads, and the Shokk Attakk Gun is a lot of fun as well. Stormboyz work best in mobile/speed freaks armies, because they need something to hide behind that moves roughly the same speed. Also, they're a nice balance to a mostly armor/bike force, as if your opponent specializes in anti-armor, he might not have enough to deal with the stormboyz.
That said, every Ork army also needs a good number of troops. I'd make sure you have at least 4 troop choices, regardless of what type of army you play. Warp 'eads work best in large groups of boyz, and Shokk Attakk Gunz work best in units of grots or big gunz.

Ork Random Army Generator
The first percentage roll determines the HQ unit and the "Army List" column that will be used when determining what other units are in the army. From that point on, roll on the appropriate column and start adding up points. This list is setup for only the Orks that I own, and if I roll the same unit twice I just reroll it. This is done until the points limit is reached or exceeded, then I can go back and fuss with the number of figures to get the final list to the right points value.

The first time I used my shiny new SAG and shiny new Lootas - it distressed me to no end to discover that by setting them up close to each other they had to fire at the same target! Yikes!
The SAG mek would have to be alone, and that is unhealthy. Any unit he is with is required to fire at the same thing, and range/weapons capability might preclude that being useful. Also, he can't move and shoot, so once you set him up you want him to stay where he is.
A small unit of grots gives him lots of soak off wounds with the added benefit of claiming an objective in your own deployment area. That little unit of grots has been critical for me at times.
I run a Big Mek with SAG to claim objectives too. My opponents see 13+ wound Big Mek and figure its a waste of their time.
Oh yes! Thank you guys. That sounds like a fantastic plan
Advantages with Big gunz other than adding wounds:Shokk Attakk Gunz work best in units of grots or big gunz.
1. Artillery can shoot at other things than what the others models in an artillery y unit shoots at. (Rulebook p.55)
2. Use the big gunz's ammo grots (great for SAG = re-roll scatter)
I hate this f'n reply button.
