if its for friendly play yes it can be a formidable list and isnt considered as cheese only problem is first few games will be lengthy there on hell get quicker at playing but still not as quick as say a full mech force or the more smaller armies (marines and such).
so if he dont mind moving lots of models and having an army that will exceed tournament play time yet can easily be competitive yes if he wants an army thats quick then i would recommend a full battlewagon list or killa kan deff dreads list to lesser the amount of orks.
pretty much what they said above a good thing to add is a grot screen to this i dont leave home without it and a large number of lootas i also tend to take a weirdboy with a shoota boys unit his powers come in very handy just be ready for the random oh and some grot kannons there practicaly I.G missile launchers and for me have worked wanders. also by taking a mainly shooting army you have a very formidable force i have outshot tau and guard gunline the looks on there faces still make me smile
perhaps but the ork boys are your anti infantry theres not many that can best a group of boys in a fight (there are some but we'll not mention those as its blasphemy lol)
i prefer the kannon a str 8 shot can take down armour 13 and under pretty easily and you can try to glance to death land raiders. if theres no vehicles then the str 4 blast can do the trick on small units i have managed to nibble many a marine squad down leaving it easier for the boyz when they get there eventually.
now if your friend does want big gunz there recommended in groups of 2 ok so if one dies and the gretchin run its only 40 pts worth of models (if kannon) where as if it where 3 then you do start wasting points also the big gunz detract from you main units the boyz i see them as the hidden wander unit
