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: Sucky units are Fun?!?

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read June 28

Every game has pieces that just aren’t that good. Whether they are cards, minis, or just units in some kind of pixilated battlefield, each game has something that just seems to scream, “SUCK”. First of all, what makes a unit terrible? The way I define a “crap” unit is something that costs too much and […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Ard Boyz Breakdown

Thomas / Goatboy 8 Minute Read June 21

‘Ard boyz is now upon us and we all have to think about ways to make our armies stronger to face the sheer amount of idiocy that 2500 points can bring to the table. Each codex has their own ways to get to 2500 points and what I want to discuss today is how to […]

HOBBY: Goatboy Loves To Draw

Thomas / Goatboy 3 Minute Read June 12

Hi Goatboy here. I’ve gotten few requests for “drawing how-tos” regarding my 40k pictures that I throw up on BoLS. So here you all go! As much as I enjoy throwing dice and painting armies I also like to draw. Here is a peek into my process for creating some of the artwork you see […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: The Sky isn’t Falling

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read June 7

Every time a new codex comes out, we all fall into the “how can GW release such a broken thing into the game? “ I know this since I fell into the trap too, especially when dealing with the new IG codex. Why am I talking about this today? Well I just wanted to say […]

Slaanesh Tactica – By Darkwynn

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read June 6

Here is the final part of the Daemon Tactica that was requested that focuses on the Dark Prince and Lord of Pleasure. I took a different route than everyone else picking Slaanesh because in my mind, it focus on speed and efficiency to win games. Let’s break the units down. HQ: Keeper of Secrets: At […]

Daemon Tactica – Nurgle

Thomas / Goatboy 6 Minute Read June 2

I am not the biggest fan of Daemons currently. I feel they can just get too screwed by not rolling that 3+ when you need too. But they can be very fun to play and allow you to ignore certain aspects of the game that other armies have to live by. Since I am the […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Paint Theme

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read May 25

Goatboy here again. Instead of delving into some kind of tournament nonsense I thought I would go into how I like to work a visual theme into my armies. Nothing is worse to me, then a completely non painted army that you see week in and week out. I know we all can’t be painters, […]

40K ARMY LIST: Space Marine Hammertime

Thomas / Goatboy 2 Minute Read May 20

Now I didn’t think of this army list, it was a local player named Josiah who came up with this. I think this list might be too much of a one trick pony, but it could make for some fun times on the board if you are seeing lots of newly minted Imperial Guard players. […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: Orky Road Warriors!

Thomas / Goatboy 5 Minute Read May 17

Hi Goatboy again, I wanted to have a quick talk about a new ork build I feel might do alright in the new landscape of tanks, templates, and massed flashlight fire. The new IG book really throws a nice grenade into the normal metagame we are used too. Nob Bikerz are no longer a groan-inducing […]

Goatboy’s Thoughts: How do you pick your army?

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read May 10

Everyone who reads this site has a favorite army. The question I pose today is WHY did you pick your army? What bits of fluff, minis, or just sheer power level makes you want to play a specific set of plastic toy soldiers from the future? I know why I pick an army and I […]

Goatboy’s 40k Thoughts: I Would Rather go Second

Thomas / Goatboy 4 Minute Read April 19

This last tournament I played at locally, I noticed that I never went first in any of my games. Now this didn’t bother me, as the advantage of going first, has been lessened in the new world of 5th edition. The new guaranteed knowledge of who goes first lets you use a whole new set […]
