As a theme army I love it. Its got lots of mobility as well. Im not a big fan of Big'uns, I find them unbelievably expensive for what you get.

Nice theme but my tactic against this army would be - shoot and/or magic the spider and wolf riders - 2 wounds would force a Panic test and if that unit flees through another unit, it causes another Panic test.

I would suggest reducing the Savage infantry units to 20-24 and having more of them in place of the wolf/spider riders.

I would think you'd need not only more shooty defence (can savage orks get some kind of flyers, ambushers or scouts at all? - but your impressive mobility may solve this), but also more magic defence than just 2 dispel scrolls and 3 dispel dice at 2,000 points. As pointed out, panic is your greatest enemy, even more so than animosity. I'd be tempted to drop the BSB and get a second shaman, or alternatively to drop the warboss and get a lord-level shaman (and upgrade the lvl 1 to 2 in that case).
