More About Dakka

DakkaDakka - Warhammer, 40k, Warmachine and Flames of War Community.

DakkaDakka is a large, independent wargaming community that features discussion, tutorials and images for many games.

Warhammer 40,000

Our warhammer 40k forums are among our most popular. They have been operating the longest and contain discussion about every facet of warhammer 40k from tactics and army lists to background and upcoming releases.

Warhammer Fantasy

The Warhammer Fantasy Battle Forums are consistently increasing in popularity and are almost on a par with our 40k forums covering the same large range of content with advice from some of the best tacticians the world has to offer.

Warmachine and Hordes

Dakka now has one of the largest Warmachine and Hordes forums on the web, and has a huge range of Warmachine Pictures in our gallery.

Flames of War

Flames of War and other historical games are growing in popularity here on dakka and we invite anyone to join in and discuss them in detail. As flames of war grows more popular, Dakka's coverage will only increase. Be sure to check out the Flames of War gallery to see some inspiring stuff.

Dakka Features

Dakka is a big site with a lot to explore. Here we highlight some of our more interesting features:

Wargaming Gallery

The dakka gallery is one of the largest wargaming galleries in the world and has a huge range of tagged miniatures from many game systems. From flames of war to babylon 5, and of course 40k. You can vote on images (like using hot-or-not), and use our advanced gallery search engine to find exactly what you are looking for, be it space marines, orks, cryx or Dark Elves!


The dakka forums are growing faster and faster and are the bread and butter of the website. They still maintain quality and a fair level of freedom compared to many other forums. Our most popular forum is News and Rumours, but Dakka Discussions and 40k army lists are very popular too. There are some important rules to consider (no spam, no swearing, no piracy) but everybody gets on well enough thanks to our great moderation team.


The dakka wargaming articles are run on a wiki (like wikipedia). We have a huge range of wargaming articles covering everything from tactica to modeling and painting and even some great funny stuff. If you are bored and want to have the equivalent of dozens of magazines to read then head over to the main articles page and start clicking around. Because it is a wiki, anybody can hop in and click the 'edit' tab at the top of the page, so if you have anything to add or just see some typos or bad grammar then you can help make it better for everyone.

Army Profiles

Dakka's army profiles are a throwback to the very earliest version of dakka from the late 1990s, where various armies were highlighted in detail. Our army profiles section now contains many armies from different game systems with in depth photographs, army lists and explanations of their signifigance from their owners.

Dakka Forum: The Argo Cluster - 40K campaign reports - BFG and start of new chapter on Page 2.

After some consideration, I've decided to place this thread in battle reports. Being on hiatus from competitive play for various reasons but still wanting an excuse to set up nice tables and push figures around, I'm running a sort of a cross between necromunda, 40K, and a roleplaying game. The players start out with 200 points of stuff and get points every session to replace their losses and build up their forces. There is a survival table like Necromunda, and some scope for advances as well. My draft rules are here: http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/The_Argo_Cluster_-_40K_Roleplaying_Campaign I was also considerably inspired by Kid Kyoto's article on civilian life in the Imperium, which you can find here: http://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Civilian_Life_in_Warhammer_40%2C000_AD

The Argo Cluster.

Like a luminous mass of jewels in the darkness it hangs in the Eastern Fringe, a beacon in a desolate region of space, attracting star voyagers for millions of years. The light of the stars mirrors the light of the human souls on this far flung outpost of the Imperium, their courage a bulwark against the uncaring night. The Skaith cluster has seen many waves of human settlement over tens of thousands of years, but during the time of the Imperium it has been a fiefdom of the Adeptus Mechanicus, particularly the Magos Biologos, and its inhabitants reflect that allegiance. Humanity exhibits a wide range of forms, each created for a particular purpose, and abhumans are common. Variations range from the tiny strains known derisively as ?25mm? bred for rapid reproduction and limited use of resources to Ogryn and four armed, legless deep space workers called Quaddies. For many years the Adeptus Mechanicus ruled the cluster with an iron grip, distributing the blessings of technology only to the worthy, leading to even greater variations in tech inde...

Dakka Forum: Codex Militarum Tempestus indeed limited and sold out

Posted: 2014-04-20 11:59:07
Forum post by Kroothawk, 116 responses at time of this post.

when the Codex Militarum tempestus was removed from the North American website, most people thought, it was just temporarily out of stock. Now it is gone in Europe as well and we have an semi-official statement:
Just to let you know the Militarum Tempestus codex was indeed limited edition.

It is now no longer available in the UK on the GW site. Someone tried to order one in my local GW today and the manager ended up ringing up head office only to be told they are all gone and there are no plans to print any more any time soon.
So the company that gave us limited edition undercoat sprays, now gives us secret Limited Edition army Codices. So if you just started a Militium Tempestus army: Congratulations, it is no longer supported after only 12 days. Hope you bought the Codex first. Or you own an iPad.

Edit: Because some people don't care to read more than 1 post of this thread:
1.) Codex MT sold out in North America one day after release, then in the last few days got a small restock while selling out in Europe and the rest of the world. GW customer service confirmed to several people including Dakka members, that no reprint is planned, so that Codex MT in printed form is indeed an unannounced limited release.

2.) There is a digital version available but only as an iBook, not in mobi or epub format. For the latter formats no release is planned according to official statement.

Dakka Forum: Primaris Psykers are ridiculously good

Posted: 2014-04-20 05:59:07
Forum post by Sir Arun, 124 responses at time of this post.

And by that I mean game breakingly good. Primaris Psykers are the most broken unit now ever. Dirt cheap, got the best psychic discipline (divinitation), can be MASTERY LEVEL 2 and on top of all that, DO NOT occupy force org slots!

Every IG army will be toting 3 of these guys now - to the point where for the next 5 years Astra Militarum will be synonymous with Primaris Psykers, in the same way CSM is with the hellturkey now. Because thats upto 6 div powers buffing your army. Eldar WISH they could carry around as much disposable psychic powers as IG lol. They have to drop 200 points (admittedly, 25 points less) to get 6 psychic powers per turn and that also occupies both their HQ slots, although their psykers are admittedly tougher (same amount of wounds as the 3 primaris psykers, but ghosthelm and 4++ saves as opposed to the IG's 5++). But then they're out of HQs and cannot select anything else, while IG can still bring on 6 Russes where of course everyone and their mother will be bringing pask and his triple heavy bolter + heavy stubber LR punisher, and this is just the HQ section. Finally, while Eldar do not really need psyhic powers to buff their army (unless you are a master strategist and have some crazy genius combo planned) IG benefit from crazy force multipliers when the right divination powers are used. Leman Russ squadrons, 3 Heavy Weapon teams, CCS with MOO, PCS, 50 man conscript blobs, the increase in effectiveness is staggering.
