Its all in the name, ain't it? My fri end plays orks and we are both broke I play IG and so we decided to take pts. expensive allies to ease the pain. I took DH, what can he take?
Depends on the fluff in the army list, really...
I could see a blood axe-esque codex list having imperial guard allies (they're mercs working for the Imperium; there's stories of this happening, after all). Tanks, a platoon, etc. Be pretty dang interesting, and would give the boyz some heavy support that they usually lack.
Another popular choice that I see is kroot, which to me is nine ways to weedy but in reality works well both fluff wise and game wise.
Eldar mercs might be another choice (can't recall the rules for them at the moment, are they no longer viable?). A group of eldar aiding a small WAAAGH because their farseer had a vision suggesting that if the orks win, then less eldar will get killed off, etc etc.

The only legal allies that Orks can take are Kroot Mercenaries. However, if both people are OK with it, you could really do whatever you wanted.
Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me.

Mech Tau Cadre: 2000 points, needs paint and magnets.
Paladins of Avalon (SW):-1500 points, needs paint.
Not from imperial lists, but you could take kroot mercs...
Well, if it's a money issue, there are other possibilities:
- taking-points-heavy orks (looted vehicles, big meks,skarboyz...)
- taking "cheap" orks, i.e. plastik boyz. I probably does not cost much more than expensive metal models.
