Savages with AHW are really cool. Huge blocks in 8th are cool. It just looks like the same 2500 list times two though. I'd have to get crazy with 5k to spend. I'd get bored doing 300 of the same orc. Here's where I'd be daydreaming about with an ambitious 5k savage army...
Savage Snotlings, some warpaint, bones, spears.
Boss on terradon or carnosaur or something that counts as wyvern.
Razordon chariot, or mini howdah loaded with snotlings for a pump wagon.
Mix up the types of trolls a bit.

I would combine the trolls and boars boyz so that they are each one large horde.

I'd still suggest you consider some wolves or spiders....

As cool as this is, it lacks variety. Some spidery thinks would give it tonnes of variety.

Also, you could do with some kit on the shaman. Fencers blades is useful.

Re: Lowmans and thesherriff, i do like Spider riders and Wolf Riders, but i want to do a Gobbo free army. I'm of the opinion that if an OnG army has Gobbos, the should equal or outnumber the Orcs, so if i took a couple of units of riders, it would feel out of character.
That being said, i love the idea of 'savage' snotlings. Maybe not the pump wagon (though the conversion ideas appeal), but maybe a unit of swarms. And i am now on a mission to find a Pterodactyl model to use as a Wyvern for my Great Shaman. :D

At 5000 Just stick with your consept, mal said it best Hord the Trolls as getting everything into the leadership Bubble will be hard, also why 8 Magic Levels?

Other then this I would say Have a Savage good time Screaming Waaagh!

Sometimes in bigger games we play 4D6 power dice, opponent gets the two highest, so i wanted to have the option to go Magic heavy, especially as i have no shooting. Normally this is only on the very rare occasions we do 10,000pts+ games.
Also, it means i can experiment with do a wizard only army at 2-2,500pts, or combat only.
The Trolls i'm going to have to experiment with. I was thinking of using them as a shield for some of my SO units, so i'd have two units of 4x2 in front of my general's unit area, thus within the leadership bubble, or one on either side to spread out my line.
The hoard idea does sound good though.....
