Default What should I get next to expand my force?

I want to expand my ork force, and i have thought of some ideas, but would like it if some more experienced or knowledgable pals helped me out :P

I currently have these models
42 boys (27 slugga, 10 shoota, 3 big shoota and 2 rokkit boyz)
3 deffkoptas (TL rokkits, 1 with buzz saw)
10 nobz (including painboy, very strong spearhead of my attack)
warbuggy skorcha
2 deff dreads
Looted Wagon (Ex Rhino with skorcha)

its about 1500pts

My next choice is the hard one. Ideally i want to buy all of these things i am about to suggest, but i cant do that all at once :P The orks i want to purchase include.

Assault on black reach - 20 boyz, 5 nobz, 3 more deffkoptas which i am really liking


Kommando set and Loota and Burna set along with Boss Sigrot or whatever his name is.

Personally i think assault on black reach as the extra boyz will help boost numbers, and the extra deffkoptas wont be used in every game, just against mech heavy armies. But i really like the Burnas and love the Kommandos with Sigrot coz they can outflank anywhere.

I would say... 93 more boyz with sluggas and choppas :P Its 720 points for 120 models. Buy a big mek with a KFF and watch as your opponent tries to fend them all off. Then you can put your points into some Nobz in Trukks (and with a painboy of course).
They shoot your nobz, more boyz reach the hypothetical "finish line", they shoot your boyz, your nobz will kick face.

and then of course there's the most awesome unit ever... THE DEFFKOPTA!

How do you see yourself playing the army? You could, as HiveFleetGoliath is saying, get a bunch more boyz and just swamp the enemy. You could get more Trukks and take a Speedfreak approach also. You have 2 Dreads already, so you could get yourself some Kans and go more mekanized. Lots more possibilities but it comes down to your style.

As Thor{DoH} said, how you want to play is the number one factor for what you should get. If it were me, I would say get a couple of boxes of Lootas. They are great at popping light vehicles and very killy vs infantry and monstrous creatures. It's always nice to have a little 'reach out and touch someone' ablility in your army for things you don't want to charge or can't reach quickly.

I have found that snikrot generally only works when combined with a fast Trukky/bikey list coming from the other direction. If you're footslogging, snikrot could come in, isolated among your enemy forces, on turn two and be cut down by those units who don't have anything else to do.
