A couple of things i would change.

I would make the ardboys into 1 unit of 10 instead of 2 units of 5

I would remove the savage orruks

i would give the MegaBoss Brutish Cunning as a command trait and Metalrippa's Klaw as his artefact

The remaining 160 points i would use on 5 ardboys and perhaps an endless spell

Automatically Appended Next Post:
So the army could look something like this

Allegiance: Big Waaagh!

Orruk Megaboss (140)
- General
- Command Trait: Brutish Cunning
- Artefact: Metalrippa's Klaw
Orruk Warchanter (110)
- Warbeat: Get 'Em Beat
Orruk Weirdnob Shaman (120)
- Lore of the Weird: Da Great Big Green Hand of Gork

15 x Orruk Ardboys (300)
- 2x Gorkamorka Banner Bearers
- 1x Gorkamorka Glyph Bearers
5 x Orruk Brutes (130)
- Pair of Brute Choppas
3 x Orruk Gore-gruntas (160)
- Pig-iron Choppas

Total: 960 / 2000
Extra Command Points: 0
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 79

With the 40pts leftover you could buy a balewind vortex for more magical output or a prismatic palisade for character protection.

alternatively you could just not spend the points and almost guarantee that you will get a triumph

Well mrteige pretty much covered everything, so I'd just say listen to his advice as he clearly knows what he is talking about.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.
