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: So the Warlord Titan is toughness 16 now...

Forum post by Eldar Vampire Hunter, 99 responses at time of this post.

Various units from the Forge World Chaos and SM indexes have started to make there way onto 4chan and I've been having fun reading up on some of them, but the unit I was most excited for was the Warlord just to see how they would do a vehicle that gigantic. Only the chaos version is available so far since the loyalist warlord is in the AM book which isn't out until the 23rd.

The Warlord is roughly 4000 points, with S and T 16 and 70 wounds and a 2+ save. It has pretty granular damage weakening starting when it hits 60 wounds, but while at full strength it gets a 3++ from void shields and is BS2+. I won't copypaste all the special rules, but suffice to say you're not tying this thing up in close combat, and even if you do it's still going to shoot you.

The titan power fist is S32 and deals an automatic 12 damage at -5 AP, but it's probably better to use the Saturnyne Lascutter which is only a modest S20 (and so still wounds everything short of a Reaver on a 2+) but is otherwise identical and also has a shooting profile with strength 12, 6 damage and as many shots as you can roll consecutive hits (at BS2+, if you're healthy) to a maximum of 12.

Its Quake Cannon is also S20 with 3d6 shots, -5 AP, 6 damage and the ability to halve movement and deny advancing for anything it hits. Its Volcano cannons get S30, -6 AP and 12 damage instead, but only d6 shots - though it does a bonus mortal wound on a to-wound roll of a six. Of the other arm options, the Plasma Annihilator can splash to multiple units and is kind of in between with the profile (but with only S10) but doesn't seem that strong unless it's quite a bit cheaper. The Gatling Blaster is 12 shots, 3 damage and otherwise a battlecannon profile - but hits vs infantry are tripled. Still doesn't seem like it measures up to the other options since you can get double vulcan mega bolters on the shoulders if you re...

Dakka Forum: Owoo!! Space Wolf Tactica: 8th Edition.

Posted: 2017-06-22 11:59:07
Forum post by ArmchairArbiter, 128 responses at time of this post.

So I see a thread about first impressions of our units and some other threads about how we, the wolfy viking people are, feel about our new data sheets. However I do not see a tactics thread! So I thought I would get it started. Let's hear your ideas my wolf kin!

Currently I'm trying to figure out how to fit the stuff I like into my list and how to play them. I have Bjorn and 2 more CC venerable dreads that seem too much fun to pass up.

I am also thinking of making multiple units of Skyclaws that will come in with podded grey hunters, with TWC and others bringing up the rear. I like the idea of a rushing, in your face space wolf list.

Dakka Forum: Necrons in 8th Unplayable?

Posted: 2017-06-22 10:59:07
Forum post by asauve19, 76 responses at time of this post.

First off, sorry for a wierd format, was replying to a guy on Youtube, don't feel like typing it all again.

Played 4 games with my Necrons so far... Thinking about selling them.

1 - Reanimation protocols are trash now... yeah yeah they were just broken in 7th, but they are garbage now. You used to be able to reliably get up and close because you could sustain an attack or two with a squad or warriors. That's no longer the case... I tried running 5 squads of 10 then I put 3 squads of 20 to test.. Both got annihilated before I could even get close to using my rapid fire (since everyone basically has gauss, rapid fire is the only thing that seperates them from everything else)... Bringing the point equivalent in Immortals is only slightly better. Still terrible.

2- Living Metal isn't very good either. I was able to pull that trick for one turn, the first game. After that my opponents targeted my Doom Scythe until it died from turn 2 g1 threw the rest of the games. (different opponents).

3- They are slow with really bad range. Any Halfway competent opponent can and does just sit back and shoot you, wipe hole units rather than piece some out slowly and you lose.

4- Only way I was able to be semi competitive in 4 games was with giving my guys invulns, and even that didn't do it, also I shouldn't have to force 1 model from the entire army to make any of my guys relevant.?

1-4 are points/opinions, not games. Anyway.. In all 4 games, I was not even remotely competitive (in non competitive games) and was nearly tabled in all games by turn 4... I literally can't think of anything to do, to not only keep them competitive.. But just keep them worthy of fun pickup games..

Any suggestions?

I never got a chance to play yet since I have packed everything into a box so bought a Get Started Tyranid box to start over again. So I am curious how are people on Dakka are liking the new edition. Are you enjoying the new edition? If so, why? If not how come? How about your army you play and collect with?
