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.

How do you feel about the new Skitarii models? These are pics of all of them. Do you feel the sculpt is good? The weaponry? The rules?

Dakka Forum: Is the Riptide still overpowered? And is it possible to make a tau army that's actually fun?

Posted: 2015-03-31 00:59:07
Forum post by office_waaagh, 199 responses at time of this post.

Tau suddenly became a power army in 6th ed thanks to a new codex, and many tears were shed and teeth were gnashed as missilesides and riptides covered the land in the flaming wreckage of previously invincible deathstars and flying circuses. Cries of "OP! OP!" were raised to the heavens, as blue cheese ran amok upon the war-ravaged fields of the far future.

Well, it's been a couple of years now, a new edition has come out, and a veritable tidal wave of codices has washed across the galaxy. Crucially, Tau and Eldar are no longer battle brothers, which didn't so much nerf the more exploitative lists as take them out behind the shed and put a bullet in them, Old Yeller style. And there was much rejoicing. It's a new age; Knights bestride the battlefield, stomping all beneath their feet. Strength D is creeping into codices. Gorka/Morkanauts have made their appearance.

So the first question is: has the meta finally caught up to the tau in general and the riptide in particular? A powerful unit it remains, but is it unreasonably so for its points cost compared to what's now out there? Do missilesides and crisis suits still give people apoplexy, or is there enough to counter these things floating around out there to make them more reasonable?

The second question is this: why do my opponents always hate playing against my Tau? I show up with a monster of an Ork list and everyone is happy even when they get ground into the dirt. I tabled a dude turn 3 and he had a blast. It seems that the orks are always popular when they show up, and despite the possibility for some absolutely killer lists and combos they don't get much hate. I bring Tau, and everyone rolls their eyes, and win or lose nobody seems to have fun fighting them. My Tau list is hardly cheese. Some FWs in devilfish, pathfinders, crisis suits, broadsides, and a lone riptide, led by an ethereal. I play a maneuv...

Dakka Forum: Eldar Rumors

Posted: 2015-03-30 21:59:07
Forum post by Verviedi, 109 responses at time of this post.

There are a lot of factions getting love this year. Here?s the latest on the Craftworld Eldar and what is under development:

via Birds in the Trees 3-19-2015

Eldar will receive new miniatures releases this year, but probably not a new codex.
Eldar will be part of one of the year?s two 40K campaign sets.
So Shield of Baal: 2: Electric Elf Boogaloo? I suppose we can see that model for every campaign release judging by how successful it was.

Miniatures listed are:

1 Small Vehicle box (chatter says a Jetbike based unit)
Possibly plastic Shining Spears or updated Windrider Jetbikes? The "1 vehicle" makes it likely to be some random thing, but it's always probable something is incorrect in the rumor.
2 5-model infantry boxes (2 more Aspects move to plastic)
2 MORE? When were any Aspects in plastic? Seems weird that only 2/8 (I think) aspects are moving to plastic.
2 Clampack models (chatter points to 2 updated plastic Phoenix Lords)
So I'm guessing it's a "Aspect themed" release? Maybe the Phoenix Lords will be the Lords of the aspects that move to plastic?

These rumors are rated: Probable, coming from trusted known sources.

Via Lords of Wargaming. Eldar apparently after AdMech

Yes. After Admech it will be codex Craftworld: Eldar. Plastic jetbikes and Artach.

Lots of new info from Lords of War Gaming

- Raven Guard vs Tau boxset
- new Space Marine codex this summer
- Eldar codex after Ad Mech
- Tau codex later this year

Raven guard vs Tau and should be out before Tau release.

Don't know about a Raven Guard supplement but Adeptus Astartes: Space Marines will release this summer.

Yes. After Admech it will be codex Craftworld: Eldar. Plastic jetbikes and Artach.
