O&G give a healthy dose of fun, wouldn't want to miss it besides my dwarfs. The list looks fine to me, both Goblin units could be a bit bigger at this point level, but who cares. It is more important, that you chose some variation, and O&G is just the army for that. Be warned, it can/will get out of hand and 2500k are not that much with O&G.
It also looks like a list that can teach a dwarf player a few tricks, so that is just fine as well. Go with your guts and whatever you like.
Also keep an eye out on Mantic and Avatars of War if your local store is none GW. Mantic has some nice Goblins coming for your list and Avatars of War has some nice heroes and will do their warcast models in time.

Fine list, here are my suggestions: 1. you´ve got too much magic. With 10 levels of magic in total, you will run out of power dice every turn. I would suggest you downgrade your night goblin shaman to a normal hero level one, and give him a dispel scroll. (This, unless you want to put him onto the arachnorok). 2. Orc chariots are, in my opinion, superior to goblin ones. The higer toughness and the Str. 5 boar attacks absolutely justify its use point-wise. 3. A giant is very vulnerable in ranged combat and will often disappoint due to his random attacks. I would sugest you take two doom diver catapults instead and save 45 points - the doom diver ist insanely accurate and deadly. 4. You do not have any really fast units to harass the enemy - I strongly suggest you add some wolf riders. Spider riders are fine, too, but slower and more costly. Cant think of more - have fun with the army, hope this helps. Micha. PS: If you want to use this on tournaments, you should ask if you are allowed to use special characters - this is not always the case.

I agree on the dropping of the giant for the doomdivers, they are a very big threat to characters, cos they can plop on them, and ignores armour..... They mush up heavy cav too.
Manglers are a fun choice.
Also agreed on the lv4 gobbo, lv1 hero gobbo w scroll is fine, savage orks are a doozy, 5+ ward with warpaint and lucky shaman of doom......
