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: Deep striking a building with the webway portal

Posted: 2014-10-25 23:59:07
Forum post by Sunhero, 206 responses at time of this post.

I believes its permissible to deeptrike a building using the wwp

wwp "If a model with a webway portal is in Reserves or Ongoing Reserves, then the model and any unit it has joined or is embarked upon has the Deep Strike special rule. This model, and his unit, will not scatter if arriving from Deep Strike Reserve."

Building is a model quotes just a few
1."it will be clearly stated on the models data sheet."p112
2."the building that make up a multi-part building are treated as separate models...." p.112
3. "if the model has armour values"p.183

I could go on but theirs no point.

A building is a model so can go in reserve
(p.132 "Which ever method you use models must ether deploy within the deployment zone or be held in reserve.")
A claimed building is a unit in the controlling players army. p.112
"if a unit enter a building they immediately capture and claim that building"p.112

"moving into a building works the same as embarking and disembarking a vehicle" ..."all of the normal rules apply" p.110 bottom left hand pargraph
your combined unit and ic mounted in building makes it a unit because its then claimed.( this happens in reserve)
the 'combined reserve units' section brb p.135 right hand column allows the wwp carrying character to be embarked in reserve.

It then gains the deep strike rule from the wwp and the rest is history.

this may not have been an intended consequence but i think it is undeniably allowed under the rules.

Dakka Forum: Plasma Gun 'Gets Hot'

I was wondering what actually happens when someone fails a gets hot roll in the fluff; does it burn their hands off, does a large dose of radiation emit and fries the guy?
Has there ever been a guy who has killed themselves by using a plasma gun/pistol/cannon in any book? If not, how do you picture it happening?

Tis now live gents. ;)

These are the new pieces that I have almost ready for production that will be going up for funding on kickstarter either over the weekend or the beginning of the week next week. These are intended to be the first offering and I will probably try to get a few more pieces done over the course fo the campaign as funding warrants. I intend to deliver these by Christmas.

I am not sure about the club on Tradkarl though. that was originally a weapon for a charatcer from the " other " project that I had though i could repurpose here but I am not quite sure it " works ".

Ullr will be weilding a battle axe, and the Shieldmaiden will have a sword and shield. Hoep you guys like them!

Dakka Forum: Is 40k Dying?

Posted: 2014-10-25 10:59:07
Forum post by acidlemon, 156 responses at time of this post.

That should bring you up to speed about my opinion on 40k right now. Having not even reached a year into the hobby I think I am done with 40k. I started right at the end of 6th and getting 7th didnt seem like much to me at the time. I even remeber reading the amazing fluff and stories for each race and battle. I can still see myself as I found out what the Horus Heresy was and all the little stories of each primarch was (yes I was a big noob). But now GW has seemed to wreck 40k beyond repair. I mean really, unbound? Formations? I have no problems with these army list guidelines/configurations at all but when its abused, say having only riptides etc is whats going to happen and whos to stop people? Id like to think GW was thinking of having narratives with one player bringing everything he has in his pure AM army vs another players collection of SM in a fun, laid back enviorment to blow a couple hours and have someones collection pitted against another. Now yes you could not play with said people who abuse this system but when you and your friend are the only ones who dont play by the proper rules (not doing unbound) frankly investing a couple hundred dollars into the hobby just to play my friend over and over again is not my idea of warhammer. My Idea of warhammer is when 2 STRUCTURED (Force Org.) armies face eachother and see who comes out on top. Not throw the best and broken units together to win no matter what. Sure you can spam 3 riptides, have at it but when its 9, 10 and Ive even seen 11 riptides being fielded its just too ridiculous. Yes I want to win, but at the cost of 12 grav centurions all with tiggy? No. Sure you dont get Obj. secured but who cares when youve killed every unit your opponent has? But I dont know, what are your guy's thoughts or opinions?
