Thomas / Goatboy

Goatboy the every evil member of the Bell of Lost Souls. I do arts, play 40k, and even paint a lot of stuff. Oh I guess I write articles here for like - a long time (12 years... maybe... wow). Anyway - that's me! Look at my Instagram to see what I am working on - or working on for someone. I am always doing something Hobby related.

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: You Threatin Me?


Threat BubblesI think the biggest thing that separates players is how to judge the actual threat range or threat bubble of your enemy. What I mean by threat bubble is that in 40k all units have 360 degrees of vision, thus creating a bubble around it that constitutes its maximum threat range. This range can […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Are We Letting Mech Win?


Goatboy here bringing some Warhammer 40k thoughts for everyone to chew on. The question today is, is mech really breaking the game? We all know vehicles are pretty good right now. If you look at the Glancing/Penetration table you can see that it really takes a lot to kill a vehicle in 5th. So we […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Finding the Bluff


Goatboy here, rested and feeling good after my honeymoon in Hawaii. I stopped by the comic store Other Realms and chatted it up a bit with the owner there. If Katie wouldn’t have threatened me with destruction, I would have brought an army down to play one night haha. Oh well, maybe next time. So […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Fail is the Suck!

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read August 27

First of all, thanks to all the people I met and played against at BoLScon. It was a blast to be there, and for something that was only a thought 3 months ago, it was extremely well run. I might have had some issues with some of the missions but that meant next to nothing […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Quick and Dirty

Thomas / Goatboy 2 Minute Read August 22

As you know this weekend is Bolscon so my normal Monday post will have to wait a bit. Thus a quick, small post with some 40k thoughts. The question today is, has the drive of the internet created uninteresting army lists and games? I know we all have different opinions of what is good and […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Ard Boyz Round 2

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read August 9

I went by my local store to check out the second round of Ard Boyz this year. I saw a lot of IG and Valks running around, as well as a good amount of Chaos and other power armored armies. I didn’t stay till the end, but I know an Ork, Chaos and IG player […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Hammer units

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read August 2

By now we all should know a hammer unit. Usually this is some kind of massively damaging or extremely annoying unit to deal with. Either they have a ton of saves, high armor value, or some other way to cause your game to be spent rolling lots of dice and watching the majority of them […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Setup and Go!

Thomas / Goatboy 9 Minute Read July 26

Goatboy here with some setup thoughts for everyone to chew on. As I have said earlier, setup is one of the most important factors to winning in the new landscape of Warhammer 40k. It is interesting to see how the shift of going first to shoot that lucky lascannon has been replaced with going second […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: I Want a New Army!

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read July 19

Now we all know that we can’t play the same plastic miniatures day in and day out. Things get boring and the desire to learn something new and try a different play style out drives us to buy more plastic and fill up a room with empty sprues and cardboard boxes. What I want to […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: No Ard Boyz for me.

Thomas / Goatboy 5 Minute Read July 12

So I didn’t get to play Ard boyz this year. I had my own personal wedding stuff to do as well as another wedding to go to. So that meant no rolling lots of dice and making jokes about the name of the tournament for me. I showed everyone the list I was planning on […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Lets have Fun Dangit!

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read July 5

Lately we have been theorizing stupid lists for Ard Boyz and I have come to the conclusion that I just don’t care. I’m not bringing something insanely tough. I know some friends locally have been having some crap luck as of late, so they have built crazy tough, very expensive Forgeworld-enhanced IG builds that I […]
