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: Why So Much Bladestorm Hate?

Posted: 2015-03-03 19:59:07
Forum post by Wyldhunt, 175 responses at time of this post.

One of the complaints that I hear pop up wit a surprising amount of regularity is that the eldar codex contains too much rending/pseudo-rending. Now, I'll be the first eldar player to admit that our codex could use some adjustments, but I always find it bizarre that people complain about this specifically. Sure, I've had good to-wound rolls where I get a surprising number of pseudo-rends, but there's a reason dire avengers are taken in minimum squad sizes. I tend to go on lengthy rants when in forums, so I'll try to address specific points and remain concise.

"Bladestorm makes eldar so much better at killing everything!"
Not really. on average, 10 shuriken catapults fired by avengers or guardians will get 1 or 2 pseudo-rends. So on average, they're killing rough 1.5 more meq than 10 bolters will. Against anything with a 5+ armor save or worse, they're equally good as bolters.

"Mathhammer is silly! I remember this time where bladestorm caused sooooo many rends!"
I remember the time three wyches took on a double flamer dreadnaught after passing 5 out of 6 6+ feel no pain rolls. That doesn't mean I expect three wyches to perform that well most of the time. Mathematical averages aren't everything, and it's easy to forget that just because X is the average result , it doesn't mean there isn't still a Y% chance you'll get a different result. But it's still the average. Sometimes I'll roll nothing but 6s to wound. Sometimes I'll roll nothing but 1s. Just because I've seen wyches take on a dreadnaught doesn't mean I complain about them being unstoppable walker killer.

"But it's on ALL your weapons!"
Well, sort of. We have pseudo-rending or rending on a lot of our weapons, but certainly not all of them. Let's look at a few.
Shuriken Pistols: Any unit that has shuriken pistols is not scary because they have shuriken pistols. On average, you'll g...

Dakka Forum: Dark Eldar Allied Matrix...exuse me?

Posted: 2015-03-03 18:59:07
Forum post by Niiai, 78 responses at time of this post.

How on earth does the dark eldar allied matrix work? They cannot team up with blood angels and dark angels or nids...but eveyrone else is up for grabs?! What is up with that? Space marines? Space wolves? Grey Knights? Slanesh Daemons? Slanesh Spacemarines? Necrons? Sissters of battle?

I do not understand this...

Edit: Not necrons. But stil...that is very odd...
