Default Expanding an Ork army

Currently, I am in the process of obtaining Ork models for an Ork army. I have some models so far, but I want opinions on what more to take.

Here is what I have so far:

Black Reach Kit
(Warboss, 20 Slugga Boys, 5 Nobs w/ Choppa and Slugga, 3 Death Koptas)

20 Gretchin (w/ 2 herders)

20 Shoota Boys

5 Nobs (kitted currently with 2 Big Choppas, 2 Klaws, 1 Kombi Skorcha)

1 Trukk

5 Lootas

3 Killa Kans

So that is what I own in terms of Orks so far. I do have some ideas on what more to get:

20 Stormboys w/ named boss: I like the idea of being able to assault immediately after Deep Striking, especially since it is a re-rollable (jump packs) 12 inch assault in 6th.

Big Mek with SAG

10~ Lootas: I'm aware of that Lootas work better in higher numbers.

Battlewagon(s) w/ Death Rolla

More Boys

More Trukks

Deff Dred: I like the look of these and even if they aren't great in 6th, they can be a great bullet magnet.

So is there anything else I should/shouldn't get for Orks?

If i were you i would go for A LOT more Boys . Im not sure the exact number of boys i have but i can usually run 6 squads of 30 if i have to. Its nice to have that many because it opens up the flexibility of your lists.

Also Nobz (5 more is good)

I also suggest War Bikes. (very fun unit)

Trukks as you said.

I also like Looted Wagons for space marine armies.

I also for some reason love the Big Mek with shokk attack gun
