Scary against a lot of things... very low mobility though, and pretty fragile. You have no real way to screen your smashas.
Should do pretty well vs Knights, and Daemon engjnes...
The Pyro and smasha detachments are strong, I play the same mostly. Tank Bustas may be redundant. I'd consider you only really need 1 or 2 tank Busta squads (unless you know for a fact you're going to fight IG gun line or knights).
I'd be very wary of kraken sling, or other horde lists. You have no way to protect your backfield from deepstriking charges (blood angels, dark matter crystal, chaos daemons, GSC). Or just fast charges (evil sun, some chaos lists, tyranids) that can pull off a turn 1 charge. They'll eat through those Gretchen to get to your lovely tanks.
Benefit of a horde of boys is you deny them proximity.
I like the list however it lacks CP 6 after dreadwaaggh.
While boom boys are scary at str9 ap3 tank boys still can’t shoot anything well but vehicles which leads them to have similar targets to smashas from grot mobs. You lack objective secured units outside the grots. Which to be fair are 6++ but that won’t win you many objectives.
