Ummm... well, first you need hitting power. Try some war machines.
Next, you need an eliteist killer. Try grimgor and some black orcs, just some black orcs, or a few chariots.
At this range of points you need a shaman and at least one dispel scroll. If not, you die from elves, skaven, empire, ect..
After that, try some shields. They will keep you alive in combat and offer some more range protection.
I do like the thirty man units, are you going to go 6x5 or 5x6 (across by deep)?
I agree orc shooting is crud, but a few diposable, 60 pt. 10 man shoota boyz will make some light squads that can respond fairly fast.
Then, you need a sink/superhard. Try 3 or more trolls, a GIGANTIC snotling mob (or two) or at best - a giant.

What my sugegstions would do is give you a smaller list that can hit hard units like grail knights, chosen and blood knights; survive magic; hurt monsters cast some spells (gorks warpath is great) and, you could have some orcs that have a much better combat save, plus a good general.

As an after thought, savage orc boarboyz with shields (i think they can have them?) are much hard and hit harder.

All of this is my view, but if you want to drown them in greenskinz, be my guest. But expect high casualties.

Also, peruse the magic itmes. Most of it is crud, but there are some gems.

I think that you really have to get some form of magic defence in this list because without it and only 2 dispel dice it will be horribly mauled in magic
