Wizards can't wear armor. Also you can only buy one piece of magic armor on a character, and you bought two.

Give him talisman of preservation. That's the best defence he can get.

Other than that your list is okay for small points

Give the goblins bows, make your BSB a goblin and give him the spider banner, otherwise you should Gove him protection. For a goblin army you need to have heroes, or double Lord's to help with leadership.

Sorry for all the questions.
A horde can attack with an extra rank, but can it also shoot with an extra rank?

horde only gets to attack extra rank

however Volley fire lets you shoot bows in 2 ranks plus 1/2 of the rest of the guys. so if you are in horde (10 wide) then youd fire 20 shots + 10

Shields grant +1 to your armor save- if you have no armor- you would still get a 6+ armor save due to the shield, being mounted would add +1 to the save from the shield therefore spider riders have a 5+ armor save. The spears in this case will grant you +1 strength when you charge.

This is why most players prefer wolf riders as you can give them shields and spears, they end up costing less, are faster and have a better armor save, of course the spiders have poison attacks and wall crawler so they end up about even, except that most players conserve points wherever possible, and so you see wolf riders a lot more often than spider riders.

Thanks for the horde-shooting rule and spider riders rule. I still more like the spider riders because we play with a lot of buildings.

Welcome to the game and to Da Greenskins. :)
A few suggestions:
- Watch/read battles by experienced players - I would suggest Malorian's Youtube channel. This will give you an idea of how to play well and from that writing lists becomes easier
- The list you choose predetermines the tactics available and vice versa.

Your list:
1) The advice from previous posts is sound
a) Talisman of Preservation is mandatory for level 4 wizards
b) Netters is mandatory for NG. Short bows is a waste. Drop them - NG should have HW&Shields and increase the size of the unit to 50 or more.
c) Spider units should be split into 2 units of 5
d) BSB and general must be survivable - General has ToP and BSB must not join the Spiders as they are Sacrificials i.e BSB on foot with armour and a Ward Save - keeping the Trolls as close as possible to both.
e) Fanatics are very fickle - could die doing nothing. For 1000 pts, there will be wide spaces and your opponent could elude them easily, if he chooses to and is fast enough, or 'detonate' them at your detriment, possibly.

Good luck:)
