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 Daily Poll: What is your opinion on measuring distances in wargaming.

Posted: 2014-09-18 09:59:07
What is your opinion on measuring distances in wargaming.
Every measurement must be exactly perfect every time, if you move a space marine 6.01 inches in his movement phase you are cheating.
As exact as possible, the game will take a lot longer, but it will be worth it in the end.
Try to be exact, but don't sweat the little stuff, especially in the first turn or 2.
Measure exactly for the first guy in the unit, then just arrange the rest so they are in roughly the correct position around him.
Eyeball it.
Just put your guys where ever, we assume superhuman space marines can manipulate the space-time continuum.
To cut out all the boring tactical positioning stuff we just arrange our troops in melee at the start, no measurements needed.

Dakka Forum: Anpu42?s 7th Edition Space Wolf Synergy [Warning Walls of Text May Happen] {More Edits 9/12/14}

Well I finally got my book and have been going over it. So I though I would start this up once more.
I started with Logan?well because it is Logan. I will do it similar to the last one. One Page a day in the order they are in the book. I will try to make updates as things are pointed out to me.
I will also do all of the FOC and Formation stuff at the end. Information from the other books will be added as I get copies.
Allies will be last

The Axe Morkai: This Axe can be used in two ways. One-Handed: 5 S6 I5 AP3 Melee Attacks and/or Two-Handed for5 S8 I1 AP 2 Attacks. You can mix or match your attacks.
Stormrider: This puts him on a Wolf Drawn Chariot giving him a 12? Move and +4 S5 I5 Rending Attacks. Also all Penetrating Hits become Glancing Hits, in an odd way giving him 2 extra Wounds.

What does all of this mean?
Logan on Foot: He can join most any unit though I think he would work best with Terminator Wolf Guard, either Teleporting in or a Transport like a Stormwolf. He is actually the best for a challenge unless Arjac is there. With his ability to attack on I5 and I1 you can pile in and take 2-3 Attacks on I5 and then Pile in a second time on I1 take 2-3 more Attacks. His Stubborn and Re-Roll even make losing a Close Combat not such a bad thing.
Logan Riding Stormrider: He becomes a Solo Killing Machine. With a 12? Move and 12? command Bubble he makes a good choice to hang with Thunderwolf Cavalry, Fenrisian Wolves, Bikers or even Jump Troops. When attacking...
