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: 40k 7th Edition - FAQ/Requested Errata compilation

Posted: 2014-08-01 01:59:07
Forum post by Trasvi, 40 responses at time of this post.

I thought it might be good to start a thread compiling all the things that either GW will need to FAQ for the new edition, or potentially questionable rules in 7th edition that you think weren't intended/don't have the same kind of effect as before even if the RAW is clear.
This is not a thread to request errata for units/armies you see as overpowered.
If the RAW is clear, please post that along with your question.

Hopefully we can use this as a guide to GW or TO's in the coming weeks for issues which may crop up.

I only have a few questions myself, but please post more if you think of them for your specific armies.

Various Psychic Powers
Psychic Phase
Q: Many psychic powers in older codexes (eg, Codex : Grey Knights) don't have explicit types or Warp Charge costs. How do we resolve these powers?
Q: Many psychic powers in older codexes are specified to be cast in other phases. How do we resolve these powers in the new psychic phase?
Answer: See various codex FAQ's regarding old psychic powers. In general, powers from 5th edition books are GONE and those psykers now know or generate powers from the rulebook.

Q: Is Banishment 1 or 3 Warp Charges?
Answer: 1. The psychic cards are wrong.

Codex: Grey Knights
Q: How does the Grey Knight 'Aegis' interact with the new Psychic phase?
RAW: Re-roll failed DTW rolls of a 1.

Codex: Chaos Daemons
Q: Can Pink Horrors roll for spells on the Malefic Daemonology table? How many powers can they end up with?
RAW: Yes they can. How many powers depends on the interpretation of Psychic Focus + Chaos Psychic Focus.
rule previously made powers easier to cast for Daemons of Tzeentch, and the effect is now substantially diminished.

Q: How does Fiend of Slaanesh - Disruptive Song interact with the new Psychic phase?
RAW: This is now -1 Ld to enemy psykers for all purposes.

Q: When the Blue Scribes automatically man...
