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: Codex: Space Marines ? Errata Now Available

Posted: 2017-08-17 11:59:07
Forum post by reds8n, 49 responses at time of this post.

Codex: Space Marines has been out for more than a week now, and many of you have already been getting stuck in with building armies, planning your Chapter Tactics and finding the best combinations in the book.

We want to make sure that the codex works as well for you as it possibly can, and today, we?re releasing an errata with some minor changes to the book. For the most part, this is about making sure you get access to all of your wargear; Sergeants can now take melta bombs again, while various weapons now have points costs for use in your matched play games.

So... I pre-ordered the new Dark Imperium boxed game after seeing the rules leaks and pictures of the awesome new Primaris Marines. As such, this happened:

And you know what? I ain't even sorry. Wouldn't mind a bit of input as to how the armour is looking though: I've gone for a high contrast look so the edges finish in pure white. Not terribly sure about the green sword or if I should stick with my tried and tested turquoise power weapons...

I mean he isn't the most powerful character, the primarchs, the emperor, malcador are more powerful than him

The Custodes i would wager are more powerful than him, but many call him a big MS all the time

Dakka Forum: 2nd Konor campaign mission is hideously imbalanced

Posted: 2017-08-17 01:59:07
Forum post by the_scotsman, 67 responses at time of this post.

So, in short, the mission this week is:

Imperium goes first unless chaos seizes
1VP per unit destroyed, +1VP if the unit that did the destroying had an unmodified save of 3+ or 2+
Chaos gets +1VP if not tabled at the end of the game.

So basically, if you're playing Power Armor of any kind, you score double points on top of the natural advantage that elite armies get in the "too stupid to math" version of kill points.

How is this mission supposed to be enjoyable for anyone? GW has now given blatant advantages to their favorites (space marines) for two weeks now, are we really OK with this? And before you start with "no they didn't!" remember that last week any specifically Space Marine unit scored double points for painting, everyone else had to paint up a whole start collecting set.

GW doesn't actually want to have a campaign where the players can affect the fluff. Again, they just want to provide their eternally favored sons with an official way to roleplay out the bolterporn they put out.
