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: Chapter Focus: Raven Guard!

That's a rather strong looking tactic. -1 To Hit on shooting attacks vs Raven Guard when you're 12" or more away.

Unique stratagems should be rather interesting too. Strike from the Shadows sounds real dirty. Spend some points to give units Deep Strike at the start of the game.
Edit: Deep Strike where they can move right after most likely, depending on how the wording on the actual Strategem is. Since it's "before the game begins" that'd lead me to believe you get your first movement phase. :ninja:

Dakka Forum: Counters to the Stormraven

Forum post by iddy00711, 80 responses at time of this post.

Hey, currently designing a TAC list focused on countering the soon-to-be-everywhere Storm Raven spam. So far my initial ideas are 6-10 Primaris psykers in a guard blob and Celestine. As I see it the speed and short range of rapid fire hurricane bolters leaves the ravens open to mass smite, although allying in screening scions would stop me dead in the water.

My question is, are there any other viable units that are effective at taking out Ravens or are they virtually untouchable?

Had a more than concerning talk today with one of my favorite gaming stores.

He said that alone this week GW made many items for him unavaible, because they will be Webstore Exclusive.
Examples are: Excorine set, Baneblade, Stompa
He said they "lost" around 15 products from their list.
