Welcome to Librarium Online!
In the new orc and goblin book on page 26 it lists squig hopper with giant cave squig it doesnt say that the hopper cannot attack so i'm assuming that he can attack, but on page 55 it does not list the cave squig at all, so i'm assuming that you take the stats from page 26 for the cave squig.
Also, when the squiq hoppers are being shot at do i go off of the squiqs toughness or the hoppers toughness, or maybe i randomize.
Finally, while in close combat as well as being shot at do i use the squigs amount of wounds or the riders amount of wounds?
For regular squig hoppers the actually night goblins on top never fight. They are considered to be hanging on and trying to drive the squig. For the Giant Squig which is taken for a boss, the boss can fight as he has his own profile where as regular squig hoppers only have 1 stat line which is used for any attacks/hits against them. You don't need to randomize hits.
