5 koptas is about the minimum I would take. So if you drop any, drop them all. Personally I would keep them, but it's a matter of taste I think.

Think about a kustom force field generator. I've seen those used a lot lately. Not a game winner but definitely a boost.

Three comments for things you could change to give your army a slightly different flavour, that flavour being mostly dakka.

Then two comments for being more choppy.

Instead of Kommandos, replace them with Lootas for some long ranged heavy firepower.

Instead of Big Shootas, replace them with Rokkit Launchas (drop one Deffkopta to pay for the upgrades), and you now have even more anti-tank firepower to work with, anti-tank stuff being the main weakness of Orks. (Which is why everyone loves Deffkopas now. Scouting/Outflanking twin-linked rokkits with cheap (due to black reach) models). Losing one Twin-linked Rokkit to gain three squads of 2 rokkits is a fair trade-off.

Alternatively, get rid of the big shootas/rokkits on the boyz altogether, since Slugga Boyz are usually running to get into range (then WAAAGHing to run and assault), or replace one squad of Sluggas with Shootas.

If you can spare the extra 30 points, upgrade a Nob to a Painboy. Feel No Pain will make the Nobz even more annoying to kill. Also, a WAAAGH banner is awesome. With most things being WS4 or less, you'll be hitting on 3+ and wounding on 2+ for some ded killy action.

Last comment/suggestion: Since your Warboss can be singled out sometimes, you may want to drop the 10 points on the Cybork body for an invuln save.

Orks in 5th need numbers. The best thing that I have found that works for me is to work backwards from the HQ.

Big Mek (w/ Kustom Force Field or Shokk attack gun or get one of each.)

****~10(12-15 best) Kommandos w/ 2 Burnas MUST TAKE SNIKROT!!!!

THEN fill in the rest with 30 Boyz mobz with a Nob and Power Klaw. Alternate between Slugga/Choppa and Shootas. SHootas should get a mix of Big SHootas and Rokkit launchas.

After you have filled at least 3 mobz of 30 then get som looted wagons with Boom Gunz/ Nothing else.

If after you take 2 wagons then start putting more boyz mobz in and maybe a tankbusta squad or Lootas.

I really love trukks but they can only be useful if there are multiple trukks.
Leave the trukks and warbikes for speed freaks...

Play testing will uncover your style of play and you'll see what works really quick.
