Well heres my attempt for making some lists out of youe models.

Thinking for the idea for the 500 point list to have:

● two squads of 19 boys plus nob with powerklaw.
●two solo deffkoptas with rokkits
●basic warboss with nothing
●5 man squad of lootas

Thats exactly 500, boss would go with one of the boys squads. The deathkopters are harassing units, or last minute objective grabbers.

The thousand point list is basical the same:

● basic warboss power klaw and eavy armour
● warboss with bike and power klaw (too go with the deathkopters)
●two meks with kombi skorchas (one each to go with boys)
● two squads of boys with nobs and power klaws (squad size of 23 and 24 plus nob)
●small squad of 10 gretchin and runtherd
● 3 deathkoptas with rokkits
● 3 kans; thinking 2 zookas and a big shoota
●deffdread with 2 klaws, and 2 big shootas

Everything would be on foot, bike boss would be with the koptas until a target might be found. Other would go with one of the boys squads. Meks to help with 'naughts to keep them alive and do damage.

The 1500 is a little difficult don't think theres quite enough for an effective list.
This all just comes to 1173 points. Would prefer to have more boys and some transports.

●basic warboss power klaw and eavy armour
● warboss with bike and power klaw (too go with the deathkopters)
●two meks with kombi skorchas and killsaws (one each to go with boys)
● two squads of boys with nobs and power klaws (squad size of 23 and 24 plus nob)
●two squads of 15 gretchin with a Runtherd
● 3 deathkoptas with rokkits
● 3 kans; thinking 2 zookas and a big shoota
●deffdread with 2 klaws, and 2 big shootas
●5 lootas

What do you think? Basically thinking that you need more boys and less toys. Thinking along either enough boys for a horde army 90+ or transports based ones.

It really depends on the meta in your area that you are playing. In my old meta I was stomping everyone with tons of boyz and dakka. I moved to a new area and they are all fast armies that zip around blasting my boyz to bits while I deal little damage in return. So my suggestion would be find what your area is like and tailor your list for it.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Well what i wrote up was what i could do with what models you said you had, thinking for an effective list more models may be required thats why it was only 1173 points not the 1500 you requested. Personally id go with some more boys and some transports to carry some of them. Either a few wagons or a couple of trukks.

With that base you could play 1000 pts easily, but shoulds till need some buy. Orks are not a cheap army...

at 1500 pts i'd suggest the green tide formation + a single ork detachment

Warboss, evy armour, claw, lucky stikk, boss pole (119)
Pain Boy (50)

100 Boyz
5 nobz w/claw
(775)

Big Mek
Kustom force field
(85)

10 Gretchin + 1 runtherd (35)
10 Gretchin + 1 runtherd (35)

4 Meganobz
trukk
(190)

5 Tankbustas
2 squig bombs
Trukk
(105)

5 Tankbustas
2 squig bombs
Trukk
(105)

3 trukks with a force field to protect them, transporting hard hitters, followed by an horde of FnP dudes with 6 claws in the midst. Gretchins to secure a couple of objectives, maybe. Mostly they act as cheerleaders. Instead of one unit of tankbusta you could take 3 units of 1 Deffkopta with twin rokkit, fro some degree of speed and objective grabbing. spared points could beef up the horde.
