So I just came into a big pile of orks from a buddy who is leaving 40k for WFB and I just don't know where to start with the army.

The models include

Thraka
3 Warbosses (Black Reach)
Big Mekk w/ Shokk Attack Gun
Weirdboy
Pain boy
25 Nobz (15 from BR)
80 boyz (40 slugga 40 shoota)
10 Lootaz
10 Stormboyz
9 deffkopta (BR)
5 Tankbustas
1 Trukk

I'm pretty sure thats everything. What kind of lists are optimal with these guys? I'm leaning towards just a green tide I think. What do you guys think? Thanks all!!

Hmmm. Not enough bodies for Green Tide - you'd need a minimum of 150 at anything over 1500. You could do a fairly balanced army of a pair of Warbosses with Nob squads, 4x 20 Boyz, 9 Deffkoptas and 10 Lootas. You really need some vehicular support - the Battlewagon is a steal, as are Junkas and Grot Bomb Launchas if you can get Forge World.

I would get you a pair more boys to start, and one more trukk. Then you could have 2x 30 squads and 2x trukk squads. A battlewagon for those nobs or two. You got enought nobs to spam battlewagons if you like. Have the big mek with the lootas. The weirdboy is great with a large unit of shootaboys. Nothing realy freaks an opponent as when 30 boys suddenly teleport right behind something that was in cover!

Personally would look at as directed possibly aiming towards a vehicle based army with trukks or wagons. Or to go green tide buying some more boys and just use your sporadic assortment of other units to assist your army. Really nothing more is needed apart from boys or transports unless you want to really specialise.
