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: Is the size of a 40k model an accurate representation of their actual size?

If so, then a Tau fire warrior is slightly taller than an imperial guard and a space marine is only slightly taller than a fire warrior.

Hello and welcome to my hobby blog here on Dakka,

I finally found the time, courage and muse to present my creations to this community but first maybe start with some words to my person.

About me
I started with wargaming and painting only a little more than a year ago. Since this time I tested a lot of things and - in my eyes - leanred a lot as well.
My initial start with the hobby was WH40K since two friends asked me if I'd liked to join them in their games. In fact I was forced to lead the orc army of one of the against the tyranids of the other one.

Well my time is precious so I did not have that many games since this first one, but at least a few. If you'd ask my to classify maself, I would call me more of a painter and a tinker than a gamer actually. ;) ...and my work progress is quite chaotic. ;P

After getting addicted to those small plastic figures and the the smell of the glue ;) I looked around at other products and soon fell in love with Infinity by Corvus Belli as well.
But better switch to my list of current projects.

My projects

As said I started with WH40K (Tau) which "ate" about the half of my hobby time last year with the other half shared by my Ariadna, terrain building and different side projects.

Main projects in 2013
My Tau army (gallery links: Tau - Kroot)
Ariadna faction from Infinity (gallery link)

Side projects
Space Marines (mainly Dark Vengeance) (gallery link)
some terrain building (gallery link)
start of ALEPH faction (Infinity) (gallery link)
Godslayer Nordgaard (gallery link)
misc fantasy miniatures (e.g. old Armalion minis) (gallery link)

With a big 2vs2 Apocalypse match a few days back I now did push WH40K to the side and will try to focus on smaller systems.
WH40K is nice but since I travel a lot and my storage space is limited I recognized that I like skirmishers even more. As well there are some ...

Dakka Forum: Perry WotR Men-at-Arms: pre-orders up!

I don't see it being posted here, so just move this or delete it in case it has been posted.

Ex-GW sculptors Perry Brothers are releasing their War of the Roses Men-at-Arms plastic box set by the end of August. They're taking pre-orders now and they also have a special offer shown below:

Some other photos of the foot Knights/Men-at-Arms below: https://www.perry-miniatures.com/images/Box%20figs%201.jpg https://www.perry-miniatures.com/images/Box%20figures%202.jpg https://www.perry-miniatures.com/images/Steves.jpg

I'm personally excited for this since they'll be swelling the ranks of my fantasy human army. That's a lot of armored infantry: 38 in a box for 20GBP is always a steal.

Dakka Forum: [Necron] New Deathstar rising: Sentry-Star. How does it fare against other competitive D.Stars?

7th may have taken our Spyder-Star from us, but it looks like Obyron has found some new friends to play with...

Overlord (Phaeron, SW, PS)
3x Sentry Pylons (Focused Deathray, IWND*)
855 points (810 without IWND)

"Cripes, that's expensive for only 5 models!" I can hear you say.

But here's the thing, The Focused Deathray is a S10 AP1 beam weapon that deals double hits to anything underneath it's 3D6" line (so if you have a unit of 5 marines and the line touches 3 of them, the unit will take 6 S10 AP1 auto hits) .
To make matters worse, because the Focused Deathray gets around targeting, it can be used against invisible units without penalty. . Because the Deathray is not targeted Jink/cover saves are useless against it. It can also technically split fire 3 ways, giving you a 48+3d6" death bubble.
When you attach Obyron, he can, instead of moving normally, teleport-deepstrike them anywhere on the table in the movement phase (he can even deepstrike them out of combat and into range of new targets every turn).
The Pylons follow the Artillery rules and are fearless but with zero CC capability. Normally, because the weapon is heavy, they wouldn't be able to fire the same turn they deepstrike/move with Obyron. But with a Phaeron attached they gain relentless (plus he's there to tank for Obyron).

? 5 models with 3 wounds each, majority toughness 7, and a 2+/3++ to tank
? 3x S10 AP1 3d6" splitfire beams (fired up to 24") that double all hits, which ignore invisibility and jink
? can teleport/deepstrike anywhere on the table, even when locked in combat

Now here's the killer:
As long as this unit is deployed on the table, come movement phase turn 1, Obyron can deepstrike them from your side of the table directly into your opponent's deployment zone. The Pylons can then start drawing lines over anything within their death bubble. If...
