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: AOS multiple weapons & number of attacks

Posted: 2015-07-28 07:59:07
Forum post by Vetril, 118 responses at time of this post.

To me this is crystal clear, but some of my friends are unconvinced.

If a model can take the same weapon 2 times, does it get a number of attacks equal to the sum of the attacks of each weapon (or in this case, twice the number of attacks, since the model is equipped with two identical weapons)?

Say you have chaos warriors: they have the option to take 2 "chaos close combat weapon"; its profile grants 2 attacks. Since by the rules a model must attack with all the weapons it is equipped with, and each weapon grants 2 attacks, I'd say a chaos warrior so equipped attacks 4 times. Which is the same mechanism that allows dragons to attack with bite and claws, and a glade lord to attack with sword and spear.

The rebuttal is based on 2 objections:

1. a dark elf dreadlord equipped with 2 exile blades would get 12 attacks. Obviously much better than other loadouts.
2. a dark elf dreadlord has a rule called "exile blades" which says he gets to reroll results of 1 when he rolls to hit.

I fail to see how these 2 points imply that you get less attacks, but I wrote them here to give you a complete picture.

Your opinion?

Dakka Forum: Abolish Allies Campaign (Solo 2016!)

Hello all,

My name is Kro Darklorr. I would like your attention for one moment.

Are you tired of seeing Skitarii hijacking Blood Angel drop pods? How do they even get those, anyway? What about Ulramarine Centurions having a hang sesh with Draigo? Don't they know he's busy in the Warp?

What about seeing the Webway open up and having Raider gunboats surge out and drop off....Wraithguard? My word!

I'm here to tell you that, if elected, I will fight for the Solo rights of each army out there! No longer will we have to sit idly by and watch these travesties occur, with nothing we can do about it! I will go out of my way to ensure each army is fielded the way it was meant to be fielded. To make sure they use the abilities and resources they were meant to use. No longer will I sit and watch as 5 Flying Hive Tyrants (Why the Hive Mind would dedicate so many resources to having that many semi-sentient commanders on the battlefield is beyond me) fly across the battlefield as their....Imperial Knight??....ally stomps through the enemies faces! No longer will the Dark Eldar race be misused into forced taxi slavery! No longer will Dante let countless Drop pods disappear from under his noses as the Adeptus Mechanicus does what they will with them!

I will fight for equal treatment for all armies! And with your vote, we can make it happen!

Vote for Kro Darklorr, and together, we'll abolish the Ally Matrix!

Solo 2016! :thumbsup:

Dakka Forum: Big News for the die hard BattleTech fans...

Posted: 2015-07-28 00:59:07
Forum post by Ghaz, 65 responses at time of this post.


The re-designing of the unseen BattleMechs that was accomplished as part of Project Phoenix was the right option at that time. It ensured those BattleMechs were usable by the community in both Technical Readouts and miniatures form as we thoroughly explored the unfolding plot lines of the Jihad Era.

However, as FanPro?and then Catalyst?continued to exploring the full breadth of the BattleTech history in Historical, Era and Field Manual sourcebooks, it became more apparent that the solution that worked so well for post-3067 left the ?Mech berths empty for previous time periods, especially the Succession Wars. After years of weighing the pros and cons, we?ve made the decision to not just dip our toes in the pool, but to leap into the deep end: straight out of the DropShips into a hot LZ!

We?ve spent the last half-year re-imagining the unseen BattleMechs that will always be one of the hallmarks of BattleTech. Our goal during all of this remains to merge 21st Century sensibilities with the classic lines that make those ?Mechs so near and dear to all of us.

As part of this announcement you?ll see two covers that feature the results of this extensive work, as well as a render to start proof-of-concept miniatures production. In the coming weeks and months we?ll be rolling out more covers and sketches to show all the work that?s been merged into this amazing project.
