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: What would you change in 7E?

Posted: 2016-08-25 00:59:07
Forum post by Selym, 76 responses at time of this post.

If you had to write a list of the things you would want changed in the 7E rulebook (without reverting to a previous edition), what would it be?
In addition to this, what aspects of any codexes would you wish to see changed?

For me:

-6+D6" charge move
-Non-random psychic powers and warlord traits
-Rebalanced psychic powers and warlord traits

Eldar Codex:
-Windriders lose the 3+ save bonus (all other bikes are just a +1T deal)
-Windriders can only take one heavy weapon per 3 riders
-Wraithknight gets a nerf

Dakka Forum: [Kickstarter] Blackwater Gulch 2nd Edition - August 29th

Forum post by Necros, 44 responses at time of this post.

Howdy folks!

We are happy to announce the Kickstarter campaign for the Blackwater Gulch Second Edition will be launched on August 15th! I will be using this post to share official news and updates pertaining to the campaign as we build up to the launch date and beyond.

Blackwater Gulch is a character-driven western horror skirmish game of infamous gangs, savage beasts, ravenous dead, malevolent demons and otherworldly entities.

The campaign will feature a new full sized, full color, 120 page rulebook with a great deal of new art, background and fiction. The core rules will be based upon our open ended Gangfight Skirmish Rules that you can find at SkirmishGames.com. Plus, we will have 3 all new gangs, and stretch goals in the campaign will be geared toward adding new members to their ranks. Some of these sculpts have been posted before. You can click the photos below to see larger versions in the Dakka gallery.

First, we have The Wicked. This gang is a part of the new Corrupted faction, made up of undead, demons and all sorts of things that go bump in the night.

Next comes the Wormwood Wardens. This Savage gang of Skinwalkers defends their forest home from strip-mining prospectors and fortune seekers.

The third gang is The Unsung, a mortal gang of monster hunters. They wander the land, thanklessly taking the fight to the Corrupt and Savage alike, keeping an unsuspecting populace safe from the horrors that they don?t even know exist.

That?s it for now! I will post new previews here as I get them, or for quicker updates you can also follow & like us on Facebook :)

Dakka Forum: Redemption's Blood Angels

Posted: 2016-08-24 20:59:07
Forum post by Redemption, 36 responses at time of this post.

Started my fourth army this year: Blood Angels! These plogs always work well to keep you motivated, and any tips or criticism are always appreciated. I got really inspired by armies that go for the more darker, weathered Blood Angels like those of LutherMax and Eggroll - instead of the bright red pristine ones that GW makes - so I fully intended to make mine in the same vein.

Here's my progress so far:

Cassor the Damned:

It appears somewhat brighter and more bluish than it does in person, but you get the idea.

Sicaran with lascannon sponsons:

This is probably my favourite tank of the ones I've made so far, both in looks and in rules.

Scout Squad; one sergeant with power sword and melta bomb and 4 guys with close combat weapons:

Also finished my Sanguinary Priest with Valour's Edge and a jump pack. Also settled on a snow theme for my Blood Angel bases, which I'll be adding to the already finished Scouts and Death Company Dreadnought later. Sadly the snow doesn't photograph very well because it whites out very easily, but you get the idea.
