Okay, I am sorry I have to tell you this but after several failed attempts at using large units of spider riders (more than 10). I deem them a very poor choice for killing things. Keep them small and cheap. Like 5-7 guys with a musican and short bows and call it a day.

Now if you really want to use the spiders as killers your going to need to combine the units ditch the magic equipment on your heroes and give them great weapons (keep goblin BB as cheap as possible all the time, unless they are your BSB) Str 6 always is better than str 5 then str 4.

You need to get bigger core units by either combining or getting rid of one of the units of boar boyz (or spider riders for that matter) You need steadfast and more bodies at this points level. use fanatics if you have them.

Big ol' spider is tons of fun keep him for sure!
