The Black Orc Big Boss goes with he big block of Boys while the Goblin boss goes witht eh Gobbo spearmen to buff them up a bit with his combat stats and magical items. The Shaman goes where his spell selection will best be brought to bear and the Warboss probably will go with the boar boyz, unless i'd rather have him with the boyz or big uns as needed.

Ok so first things first, you can only have a single arcane choice on your Level 4, so its either the scroll or the staff.

Next typically you only want to spend the bare minimum or close to it on core so you really should be looking at halving what you have listed. Typically this is 2x5 wolf riders, 1x34/38 Big Uns, 1x 39 Night Goblins

This free's up space for harder hitting units from special and rare such as trolls, squig herds, boar boyz, chariots, a'rok spiders, doom divers, rock lobba's and pump wagons. Core heavy can work but that tends to be using a Gorbad build (all units as Big Uns)

I say "just my opnion"

Drop the Warboss and get grimgor ironhide you already have the black orcs which is his problem.

Goblin boss and grab another shaman. Also drop the channeling staff

Drop the big un's and pump wagon and get hopefully 2 doom drivers. In my opnion one of the best siege in the game.

Make it 2 units of 5 wolf riders altho I think boar boys do the job of wolf riders just better.
