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: Things that ignore Invisibility

Posted: 2014-10-25 00:59:07
Forum post by Super Newb, 66 responses at time of this post.

I don't know if a thread like this has been done before (it's hard to run searches for to check since Invisibility is mentioned a billion times in here).

Anyway, what exists in the game that 'ignores' invisibility?
I don't know much so here's my sad list :D

- Blast weapons which target something else which scatter onto Invisible unit
- Beam weapons

So what else is out there?

Dakka Forum: Best one to one fighter in 40k

Everyone loves dem "best threads".
Was reading the recent DE codex and about Lilieth and her hand to hand combat prowess. Lucius was also mentioned in the book, where he takes a trip to Commorragh with Fabius Bile and fights in the arenas.

Leaving aside the ruleset (since I think someone math-hammered it out a while ago and Abaddon was the beat stick king) who do think is the best one Vs one fighter in 40k?
Can go back to HH times too with Servetar/Corswain etc but no primarchs. Not necessarily talking about a duel either, I mean 1 to 1 to the death.

What happens in this case? I mean you target the unit? Or you can't? Since The Lord has LD and the chariot doesn't. I am concussed.

Dakka Forum: Getting Rid of Cigarette Smell from Ebay Models

Posted: 2014-10-24 07:59:07
Forum post by Dshrike, 23 responses at time of this post.


I purchased a small army from ebay and unfortunately when I opened the package I was instantly assaulted by S10 cigarette smell with no armor saves allowed.

I went ahead and put some baking soda in a plastic container and put the odorous models in there, but in case that doesn't work, what steps have you gentlemen/ladies taken to remove this smell off used models?

Thanks for your help!
