Brave man to take one generic hero in that list. I would recommend two or three. The goblins look good, but they really need more leadership and Might.

I agree. You have a lot of models but they can still be torn up, and the drum doesn't really do that much to keep them around, as I discovered in the only game my Goblin horde was broken at SITE.

I like all of the Might you have, but you definitely have some challenges. The Wargs are delicate, particularly if they move separately from the mass. You'd need to keep them behind your line generally to pop out when you get into contact.

I also wonder about the Gundabads with spears - why? I'd put regular goblins with the spears to bulk out your numbers. One shaman replacing a captain could do wonders, as well.
