Default Help on making my 1500 army list

Hi Guys. It's been a while since I posted on here.

I have a slight problem. Some friends and I have made a campaign which will be played over a few weeks. I'm required to have multiple lists ready that should be very flexible as no-one knows who will be fighting who and what kind of special missions will be done. So I have been making my lists are well rounded as possible, plenty of boys sure, but some other things to help balance it out. And I'm stuck on finishing my 1500 list. Here it is so far

HQ - Warboss (PK, shoota/skorcha kombi weapon, attack squig, CB, BP and EA) 125pts

HQ - Big Mek (KFF, CB, EA) 100pts

Troops - 20 Ork Boyz (1 big shoota, Nob, PK) 160 pts

Troops - 20 Ork Boyz (1 big shoota, Nob, PK, BP) 165 pts

Troops - 20 Ork Boyz (1 big shoota, Nob, PK, BP) 165 pts

Troops - 19 Gretchin (1 runtherd, grot-prod) 72pts

Elite - 10 Lootas 150 pts

Heavy Support - 3 Killa Kanz (3 rokkit launchas) 150 pts

This totals 1087 points so far. I was thinking of adding 2 more Kans with Grotzookas and maybe a deff dread as an extra troops choice. But then I thought, I've never used a squad of Nobs before, and I would really like to try out the burna/battlewagon combo... I'm mostly in this campaign for fun as none of us that plays is overly competative. But I could do with some thoughts on how to expand the list so far.

Any help is great.

Unless you're going to use nobz, I wouldn't use a warboss. You're better off with another unit of boyz, or even some more grots to either stand in front to improve your boyz's cover, or hold back to sit on objectives.

More killa kans is always good, and a dread never hurts.

I'd also consider adding something fast, or that can outflank, to either claim or contest distant objectives. Your opponent's deployment zone is a long way to slog on foot, especially in 'dawn of war' games.

Good luck!

The first casualty of war is neither innocence nor truth.

The first casualty of war is always subtlety.

Killa Kans with grotzookas are nice, too. I run a squad with rokkits and a squad with the zookas in an 1850 list.
