Just a couple of remarks:

Why start off with a special character as your general? Though it's legal to bring a special character without your opponent's permission some people will strongly dislike you for it.
My advice would be to try with a regular Black Orc warboss first (you can still use Grimgor's model). Get some feel for the equipment options and capabilities of your general before you shell out the big points for special characters.

Speaking of equipment options, you should really select some better items for your shamans. Close combat magic items are wasted on them. Try the Staff of Sneaky Stealing, the Staff of Baduum or Waagh! paint.
It might also be a good idea to spread your dispell scrolls over more shamans. That way you won't lose all your scrolls when your scroll caddy accidentally dies.

Common Orcs can't carry a magic standard unless they're Big'Unz.

When it comes to Black Orcs, keep in mind they'll attract a lot of fire. A unit of 14 (or 15 if you stick your general in there) will barely make it across the battlefield if your opponent has more than one unit that can shoot.
