1) You've invested lots of points in your general. If he flies off, the other units will probably not benefit from his Ld especially your Trolls who will end up being stupid too often.
2) Mork's totem is probably one of the best dispel dice booster around. Good choice
3)5 units of infantry is excellent. I'm not a Night gobbo fan but it should work.
4) Arrer Boyz were unpopular in the last edition and I still think they should be avoided. You're better off if you increase the size of your Orc units or add more fast cavalry to march block and lure - Spiders or Wolves.
5) Your Night Goblin Big Boss in my opinion needs to ride a Great Cave Squig. He can't join units but he is very good in combat and can destroy skirmishers by himself with ease.

Good luck with DOE.

A fearful army which most Orc players will find agreeable.
I've just watched an Orc army losing to Wood Elves who surrounded them. It wasn't easy for the Orc player, whose Giant was shot and then charged by an Alter Noble and he did not use his Waagh at the right time, when he had the most number of possible charges.
Watch out for the sneaky Woodies and good luck.
