A few things.

Put your Deffkoptas into separate units instead of all of them in one slot. They are your only fast attack and you have 3, one per-fast attack slot. Having them in a group of 3 means you start making morale checks when you lose one and leadership is the weakest aspect of Deffkoptas. All it takes it one failed morale check and they are done.

Your BW is way too loaded up on weapons if it's being used as a transport. Granted, the cost isn't bad but you still have weapons on there that won't get used until the Nobz are off it as you'll be moving too fast to fire. The general rule is outfit it for its role and your role is a transport, not a tank. Emlyn has a good writeup on it in the Ork Library.

Otherwise, not a bad list. I'm a bit concerned on your Troops though. I find that Orks generally need 4 troops if you're dealing with smaller units as you are. If focused on, the units of 20 Boyz can be torn apart and lose fearless pretty quickly, doubly so since they're on foot. I'm not saying you need to make those mobs bigger but I would add in another troop unit. I find 10 Grots work well just for sitting on your home objective, ideally in area terrain. That leaves you 3 troops to move forward while you hold one at home.

Thanks for the feedback, very helpful as always I was thinking, should I drop the Nobz? Cause they're a very small unit which takes a lot of points, I could at least include another mob of boyz or increase the two to thirty. Also, I would have enough to include the grots and I could also drop the BW since it would only serve as a transport... I don't know xD

All things considered, dropping the Nobz would probably be your best option. Really it's the only place you can shave enough points for the other troop choice. As the saying goes, Boyz before Toyz!
