The Orks are trying to retake a looted munitorum factory that is halfway through making a Stompa, the have to get three parts and bring them to the factory to finish it off and get it running, if he can do this he gets the Stompa, right in the middle of the battlefield, but if a can hold the factory for three turns then he can't get the Stompa and I get 3 victory points.
To get a Stompa for free is an auto-win button in normal games. Even more, when the game is at 1500 points, as a Stompa is on it's own at roughly 1000 points. I think it would be more interesting to make this a two-step scenario:
The first game is basically what you are planning: You are intercepting an Orc convoy, which is carrying the weapons for a Stompa to the Mekyard. Every weapon you can intercept is not availlable to the Stompa in the second game. You could make this game like:
Six trukks carrying the weapons (1: three big shootas + skorcha + twin linked big shoota, 2: Deff kannon, 3: super-gatler, 4: Mega choppa, 5,6: (Bonus) Ammo for gatler, with each ammo truck reaching the Mekyard he may once negate the effect of "whirr click-click", being able to shoot (in the next round, the gun still has to get reloaded)).
All trukks (even those not carrying weapons) may be covered with a tarpaulin for free, counting as not-open, but you don't know, what the trukk is carrying. He has to write a paper, what the truck is carrying and put it folded on the trukk's platform.
He buys his army with normal rules and has to bring his trucks from one small edge of the board to the other, you are deloying with 24" distance to both short edges.
The game should be played at 1000 points, excluding the weapon carrying trukks.
Another option would be, that he has to buy the vehicles carrying the weapons, each weapons stack requiring passenger spaces, thus enabling him to load them on battlewaggons.
If he doesn't have enough vehicles, he could proxy some or arrive in waves.
The second game is your army (1500 points) vs the Stompa (which is only armed with the weapons your opponent managed to bring across the board) plus 800 points of Orcs.
I recommend to exchange the Rail rifles of your pathfinders for Ion rifles
