Goatboy's 40k Thoughts - What Makes a Codex Good?

View Comments


Goatboy here again - asking the eternal question that all "reviewers" must ask themselves whenever they review a new set of rules. Is this set of numbers and fluff any good? Is it worth my time to build and create a list? Do I need to even care about it?

WFB: Orcs and Goblins Review - Magic Items

View Comments
Hello again BoLS readers Wiley One here again, and this time I brought a fire extinguisher. A quick note on my previous article. I am a competitive gamer and that’s what works for me. To each his own and please take my reviews and opinions for what they are: one mans ramblings about little plastic men. That being said, on with the article.

40k - Warhammer 40,000 Isn't balanced?

View Comments

I read on several forums that 40k isn't a balanced game and that GW doesn't test their rules or codexes. People counter that a company investing millions of pounds into printing of books and models would make sure their game play is tested. So what's going on?

40k Conversion Potential- Hell Dorado Miniatures

View Comments
MBG here with the kicksoff  of a new series of articles Conversion Potential. The aim of these random musings is to show off something I saw that is awesome and how it can be used in the hobby (and hopefully see someone do it cause I don't have the time to- sad panda).

This week I feature a model from the Hell Dorado miniature game that is just brimming with possibilities.

Wargaming ASKEW: Remembering the Old Imperial Guard Player

A long time ago (at least in Internet time) I posted an article over on Blood of Kittens. It was the first article ever for the blog (has it really been that long). This particular post focused some dime store psychology on the typical Imperial Guard players I encountered over the years.

40K Distance And Timing

Goatboy - Go Go Team Storm Raven!

View Comments

So I got two Storm Raven kits to convert over to the Goat Angels. Yes I know that all I am doing is making the internet mad and having legions of people kick me in the jimmie - but come on Spike covered Storm Ravens sound pretty freakin cool! So while I get my plastic models of doom ready here is the initial play list I will throw down probably in the next week or so.

40k Tactics - Besieging Castles DoA Style

View Comments

Recently I posted a tactical article how to play against other assault armies using the Counter Punch method. You hold your army in reserve and watch how your opponent deploys to find a weakness you can exploit. Focus big chunks of your army on separate enemy units to quickly destroy them using your mobility. DoA has a lot of advantages versus other assault armies and the Counter Punch method can be very effective...

My friend and I got an Early War game in tonight. I still don't quite have enough stuff to make a legal 1750 Infantry list for my French, so ran with tanks tonight.

40K Editorial: Grey Knights vs. the World

View Comments

My first army in Warhammer 40K was Grey Knights.  I spent the better part of 4th Ed. 40K footslogging my pure GK army into Nidzilla, Tau Suit spam and Dual Lash.  Sure, things could of been better if I ran 2-3 Land Raiders, but I didn't see a point in bringing expensive transports in an army that's already so expensive.  Now that the Grey Knight codex is right around the corner, I have to admit that I'm pretty excited.  What am I excited about?  I'm excited about ice-cold revenge.  Let's take a look at how this newest flavor of Space Marines should fare against everyone else.

40k: The Expansions, Why Did They Fail?

View Comments


More or less every summer G.W brings out a new expansion to play 40k in another exciting new way. Last year we got Spearhead which seemed to flop like a dead sardine. Looking at the other expansions all seemed to have more or less gone down the pan with the exception of one; Apocalypse.

Goatboy: Revenge of the Grey!

Goatboy here again - talking about the new kid on the block - Grey Knights. So before I begin let me just say this - there will be no Grey Goats. None. Nothing. Nada. I like the way the Grey Knights look and would have had an army if I had still stuck with the game before my first marriage withdrawal. So with that out of the way - lets talk - Coffee Talk!
