is there a reason your characters are all 'normal' gobbo's?
I can understand the Warboss (extra point of Ld), but all of the rest?
Making them NG, saves you 5-10 points PER character. That's 2-3 Gobbo's extra.
Furthermore, you don't seem to be packing a punch. Your units are only 30 guys. that's not something that will worry alot of people.
Either drop the Spear Chuka's or the Squig Hoppers, and add more Gobbo's.

Also, do you need the musician for the Wolf Riders? rather give them short bows. They can reform as much as they like already.

Thanks of advice. I'll change characters and Wolf Riders.
I don't like hordes. Besides, they are not neccessary to win in many battles.

Maybe you could add some information against what armies you play, how often, tactics... etc. Just saying it is undefeated is not useful information on which to base eventual suggestions.

Not going hordes and still winning with pure goblins seems a bit strange. Especially if you should be confronted with opposing hordes.

I can see that you can cause lots of impact hits, but how do you break units that are steadfast?

In addition, all your impact hitters can't enter buildings or the Watchtower, so I think that that's one scenario out of 6 that you more or less autolose. Likewise, you have 2 standards and a general, so Blood and Glory is equally iffy (a Death Mage can probably off your General easy enough with his Ld of 8).

Tokunator, your suggestion is put on the right place.
My often opponents are Dwarfs and Lizardmen. But my mates like to play every armies.
I don't like hordes. My two units of 30 Goblins always stay on the army's back. Opponents don't charge nor shoot them, because they have to look after Chariots and random move units.
If opponent have a horde, I avoid it and target other troops.
Maybe my list and tactic aren't ideal, but I simply put it here for feedback.

How do you fare against massive missile fire and magic? Lizardmen with poison skinks and slaan priests should eat that list for breakfast, as should dwarves with a decent amount of gunners or quarrellers.

Squig hoppers ate camaleons , because they have -1 to hit for be skirmishers and they cant react to charges
