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.

• Bloodthirsty Combat - Engage in 1v1 bouts that pit fighters in an all-or-nothing battle where only one will emerge victorious...and alive. But don’t worry, NEXUS is not all about winning and losing in the barge arena. As a Lanista, even a loss from one of your fighters can build fame which will help you on the next bout.

• Choose Your Champion - Known as Helots, arena fighters can come from all known (and unknown) species. They can be outfitted with sleek weapons, have ravenous maws and unending appetites, win by sheer cunning--no method of winning matters so long as your Helot is the last one standing. There are no classes in NEXUS. There are motivations. This means anything you can dream up can have its day in the barge fights!

• Adapt, Evolve, and Conquer - Switch up your strategy on the fly, taking advantage of turning points, triggered events, precision strikes, and other tactics that can turn a losing bout into a rousing victory.

Dakka Forum: Prodos-The end of Warzone Ressurection, and coming of Starcide

Posted: 2018-09-26 10:59:07
Forum post by Kid_Kyoto, 36 responses at time of this post.

Dear Warzone Fans,

We have some great and exciting news and some not so great news.

Let's start with the not so great.

Despite our best efforts, we were unable to reach an accord with Cabinet Entertainment (Warzone Licensor) over the design concepts for our planned Kickstarter for Warzone; therefore, Prodos and Cabinet have decided to part ways amicably. Furthermore, and sadly for our entire team and wargaming as a whole, Prodos Games will no longer be continuing the Warzone Ressurection product line. We are deeply saddened that the game that helped to build the foundations for Prodos Games as a company has been withdrawn.

We feel that we have invested considerable efforts into its resurgence over the last five years and had great plans for the future, some of which I have shared with you over the past few weeks.

Prodos Games will support Warzone Resurrection in a non-profit way, by releasing free to download PDF with new or updated rules or providing prizes for WZR tournaments. However, we will not be able to release any new miniatures or products from the Mutant Chronicles Universe going forward.

You still can purchase Warzone Resurrection models from our online store until the 9th of October with a 30% discount, after which, Warzone products will be no longer available for sale from Prodos Games for both retailers/distributors and end clients on our webshop. In the meantime, we are negotiating with Cabinet Entertainment?s potential buyback of all Warzone Resurrection assets, including digital sculpts and rules to secure the future of the unique wargaming system. While it might be hard to be upbeat about this at this time, every challenge presents a new opportunity; therefore we are going to put our experience and skills learned from this venture to good use.

To avoid similar situations with IP, ...

Dakka Forum: dark angels are a terrible army,change my mind

Posted: 2018-09-25 02:59:07
Forum post by ionusx, 36 responses at time of this post.

time to :soapbox: a little. as a dark angels player who hasnt yet played 8th edition with the new codex only the index. the dark angels are a really terrible codex. its as if someone at Games Workshop was actively out to make a terrible army. dare i say; the worst codex they possibly could.

for purposes of the discussion i will focus mainly on their unique HQ's and units as well as relics


asmodai is still a joke, Ezekiel has the rules he should of had since 6th bloody edition (and hes still under preforming so that should speak volumes), belial continues to be devalued to the point hes actively inferior to a generic captain ALWAYS now, Azreal is overcosted to shit, and sammael lost his 1 redeeming quality which was being the backbone of ravenwing only armies (as pure ravens are now defunct). the interrogator chaplain is still good, but the chaplain is only a good secondary. we have no good primary inside the dex outside of generic guys, and generic guys just means youd be better off in another codex (which i will rationale in a second). none of them outside of ezekiel and sam have any logistical synergies with anyone worth a damn but even those guys are on struggle street


the relics continue to flounder. the shroud of heroes keeps us from falling into 6th edition orky levels of uselessness here. but the heaven fall blade isnt that good, the eye of the unseen is bad, the storm bolter is mediocre, the foe smiter is okay but then you get to the lions roar and go "what are these kids thinking). the dark angels relics have 1 excellent relic, and the rest range from mediocre to terrible and you could get better from almost every other space marine army which actively slams using generic HQ's..

special units:

deathwing: i wont even entertain the idea of them being even niche useful, between the 7th edition unplayable-formations-wing and t...

Dakka Forum: Simple balance to plasmas

Posted: 2018-09-25 01:59:07
Forum post by skchsan, 36 responses at time of this post.

To bettet depict the 'dual-edged' nature of plasmas, I suggest the following:

1. 'On a hit roll of 1, the bearer is slain after all shots from this weapon has been resolved' to 'on a hit roll of 1, the bearer is slain.'

2. 'On a hit roll of 1, the bearer is suffers a motal wound after all shots from this weapon has been resolved' to 'on a hit roll of 1, the bearer suffers a mortal wound.'

With the implementation of this rule, it'll be paramount resolving each shot of plasmas individually per shot, per model.

As for the potentially higher penalties for plasmas with higher rates of fire (i.e. 1d3, 2d6)they may be reduced in points somewhat.

Dakka Forum: Favourite/Worst updated/new models?

Posted: 2018-09-24 17:59:07
Forum post by Delvarus Centurion, 36 responses at time of this post.

My favourite has to be Mortarion, its a beautifully sculpted model. A close second are the dawneagle jetbikes.

Worst update has to be Typhus, such a disappointment, how you could have him holding up that manreaper instead of swinging it in a cool arc, plus he's just far too cluttered and caricature like. Also the Wulfen models are also horrible.

Dakka Forum: Formations in 8E (no really, hear me out)

Posted: 2018-09-24 16:59:07
Forum post by Galef, 36 responses at time of this post.

I know these were horrible in 7E, but certain mechanics now exist that can make Formations work in 8E
Instead of granting "free" stuff or silly special rules, why not have Formations simple grant Obsec and additional CPs for certain themed detachments?

For example, Saim-Hann Windrider detachment could be:
1 Skyrunner Farseer or Skyrunner Autarch
1 Skyrunner Warlock or Warlock Skyrunner Conclave
3 units of Windriders
Optional 1 unit of Shining Spears and/or 1 unit of Vypers

Must be Saim-Hann. Windriders gain ObSec, 3-4CPs

Nothing too fancy, just Obsec and extra CPs (but still less than a Battalion). Similar can be applied to Deathwing, or really any themed list.
Chapter Approved could eventually release a massive list of such Formations

Dakka Forum: Is terrain lagging behind other areas of the hobby?

Posted: 2018-09-24 14:59:07
Forum post by spaceelf, 36 responses at time of this post.

In the past several years we have seen the rise of MDF terrain and the like. Game mats have also become very popular. Few people would argue that such terrain is superior to resin or plastic terrain. You need only look at Wyrds new plastic terrain to be reminded of how nice terrain can be. I am of course biased. In many instances I view MDF terrain to be the equivalent of playing with cardboard cutouts. Not that it is bad, but why spend the money on minis, when you are playing with cutout buildings? It just seems inconsistent.

Most of us cherish highly detailed resin casts, and beautiful sculpting in the miniatures we buy. However, these values seem to get lost in our purchases of terrain. Is terrain getting the short end of the stick in the hobby?

Dakka Forum: Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project (Kicktarter, Live)

Forum post by OrlandotheTechnicoloured, 36 responses at time of this post.


Not All Minis go to Heaven

Impact! believes that lost and forgotten or unmade miniatures shouldn't stay lost to the hard drive abyss they've been relegated to.

Whether they were from discontinued lines, failed or undelivered projects we think they deserve to be resurected, brought into the light, and that's why this project is dedicated that end.

Today we give you a chance to get minis that are either no longer available, or never made it the light of day.

Over the past year Impact! has reached out to different Kickstarter Creators whose lines of miniatures failed to fund, were never got delivered or finished, or simply were discontinued after an initial printing run.

We've licensed or outright purchased everything shown in this project and now all that is left raise the capital for molds and materials and bring these amazing miniatures to backers to you, your friends, and your families and for gamers on tables everywhere

?Miniatures from the discontinued board game Wizard's Academy
?Miniatures from the closed company ZN Games
?Miniatures from the discontinued line for Breachworld by Jason Richards
?Miniatures from the discontinued line by Hivetrygon Minis
?Miniatures from closed company Soul Jar
?Miniatures from the failed to fund KickStarter Dawn of the Archmage
?Miniatures from the failed KickStarter Torn Armor


One of the group of STL files I was able to purchase was the STLs from the Torn Armor KS project that funded but failed to deliver. While I have no connection to that project at all, I will work with you to get you some/all of the miniatures at cost + shipping. I set up a special $2 reward level to assist with handling this.

Forum post by HexHammer, 36 responses at time of this post.

Just seen some of the guns of the Flash Gitz, imo they looks too good and something one could expect from the empire, not some clunky impractical stuff that has been clad together by some half witz.

- barrels of a multi barreled "gatling'ish" gun should have different lengths
- have decorative non funct barrels pointing different directions
