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.

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: The guard and the guardsmen

Posted: 2015-10-06 08:59:07
Forum post by Sledgehammer, 179 responses at time of this post.

The imperial Guard, is one of the most numerous and prolific fighting forces in the galaxy. Within its ranks are an innumerable amount of men, women, vehicles, weaponry and aircraft. Some say that its strength is derived from its numbers, its vehicles, and its structure but as we all know military strength is relative and many of the Imperium's enemies possess these traits as well. The strength of the guard is not in its numbers, its technology or its production, but rather in the hearts of man. It is the guardsman that volunteers, it is the guardsman that storms the breach, it is the guardsman that kills, it is the guardsman that holds the line, and it is the guardsman that dies. They have fought on the beaches, in the streets, and in the air. The indomitable will of the guardsman holds out against the terrors of deamons, the power of witches, and the wrath of gods. It is he in his weakness that has become strong.

The guard is organized in such a way as to take advantage of its numerical superiority. Within this structure the guardsmen are treated like mere numbers. Even when organized as such the guardsman does not lose his spirit, his will, or his humanity. It is in the human spirit that the guard derives its identity. Sadly the guard is lacking the spirit that it should have. The guardsman is useless, and his squad is worth little more.

I guess what I'm saying is that the guardsman needs to be put back into the guard.
