I am relatively new to playing 40k, and my starting army has been Orks. I am currently in a league and for the first time am going against vanilla marines, and the match is going to be 1500 points purge the alien with night fighting established for the first 2 possibly 3 turns. I was wondering if anyone could give me tactical advice and see if my current idea is worthwhile.

HQs will be a big mek with Kustom force field and a Warboss with mega-armor and cybork body.

Elites will be a squad of about 10 Lootas and a half dozen Burnas

Troops 2 12 boy squads each with a transport and big shoota. 18 'eavy boy squad with a big shoota and Nob with boss pole and klaw

Fast attack 3 1 man deffkopta squads to bring in from reserve for outflank with twin linked with rokkits

Heavy support is Battle Wagon with Rolla and 4 big shoota, 3 kans with Grotzookas and third not sure

this is around 1250 points with about 250 needed, I mainly have access to a lot of grots and a rhino that could run as a trukk for a squad of boyz, possibly could be used as a third spot for a looted wagon with shootas, skorcha and red paint with ram or a big gunz set for kannons.

Any strategies recommended? my current plan is mostly use trukks and such to guard the side and rear of the wagon after I put megaboss and eavy boys in it. Then maybe Burnas in a looted wagon, any recommendations

Also if applicable, I have about 500 or so points in deffkoptas, but I have been told by many players where I play that a lot of koptas isnt always good since they can easily fail leadership

The Lootas I plan on moving up using the night fighting for cover, if possible I was going to try and use terrain to help hide the vehicles.

The small groups of boys in trukks along with the wagon worked rather well for me against someone using a Dark Angels infantry army in the last round. All of the are going to be run as Shootas if that makes any difference in the implied strategy since enough shots can usually do a good job for me.

The Burnas are more just because I don't know what to do with the other points, and the Deff Koptas I dont know if I should work with
