My opponent always plays Empire.

He always fields his general riding a griffon.
Thats why I'm fielding a Wyvern.

He almost always fields 2-3 wizards.
Thats why I'm fielding 2 Goblin Shaman's.

This seems like a fairly sturdy orc list. the only suggestion that I have is that the spider riders should have bows IMO. The bows would give your army a little bit of range which you are currently missing.

And, considering how fragile many Empire units are (T-3, little/no armor), short bows would actually be a threat to his ranked units... Knocking off a single rank can win the melee for you in the following round...

just watch out for guns and magic because if he kills enough men to cause and panic test you will flee.

in my experience Big uns should be wield 2 chopps for 11 strength 5 atacks since youl be the one charging. the shields won't help T4 rules in melee and with S4 ap on the guns a shield still won't give u a save.
