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: Point system has tipped me back into AoS - Anyone else?

Posted: 2016-06-30 05:59:07
Forum post by kburn, 36 responses at time of this post.

I've always loved the AoS-style of rules and simplicity, but absolutely hated the lack of points. I've been drifting, not really playing any system other than x-wing, but this has finally tipped me into AoS.

Anyone else here feel the same way?

I'll pick up some of the bloodbound units later on. Definitely will be picking up lots of sylvaneth stuff when its out.

Dakka Forum: AoS points have been leaked, time to talk lists

Posted: 2016-06-30 02:59:07
Forum post by Grimgold, 36 responses at time of this post.

The day is upon us, we now have Points for AoS models (a little google fu will get you the images). We also know how the force org chart works (mostly), with points determining how many battle line units are required and how many other units (like leaders, monstrous creatures, etc) are allowed. Two interesting things, points are per units (not model), and formations cost points (they really need to get that into 40k sooner rather than latter). Based on spikey bits and bell of lost souls we know tournaments will be run at 2k points, which is about two and a half times the AoS storm-cast eternals starter force. You can have allies, but their is a tiered approach to benefits for having a fluffy army, if your army is all alliance you get the alliance benefit, and if your army is all one faction you get a action specific ability.

So I suppose now we can start talking about lists, I only have the stormcast from the starter so 2k seems far away, but I was thinking of adding two units of judicators, another unit of prosecutors, a celestiant prime (cause the model is awesome), beefing up my liberators to ten man squads, and adding a knight heraldor. What are you guys planning?

springing out of the main AoS thread :

So this turned up on 4chan. Not sure what to make of it, but it is half the price of buying the models individually.

If we can post about this release in here as opposed to the main AoS thread.

Thanks :thumbsup:
