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 Maelstrom's Edge, 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: Is 40k having it's setting twisted in the name of competitive game balance?

Posted: 2020-11-27 21:59:07
Forum post by Dudeface, 41 responses at time of this post.

Just writing this as follow on from the discussions in news and rumours.

Over the last week we've seen daemon engines having increases in BS/WS after 5 editions of being static following the possessed vehicle fluff of 3rd/4th.

We've seen core given to death company but not wulfen or necron destroyers who are arguably no less "core" to a force.

When 9th was previewed, someone coined it "40k: competitive edition". Personally it's starting to feel that fluff considerations are being put aside in favour of making the maths of the game smoother, more competitively focused.

Just wanted a place to see others opinions.

Dakka Forum: Anyone still use land raiders?

Posted: 2020-11-27 14:59:07
Forum post by Matt Swain, 40 responses at time of this post.

I remember when the land raider came out it was like the most awesome tank on the field. You just put the model on the table and cue mike jackson singing "You know I'm bad, i'm bad, i'm really really bad!"

Now I don't remember the last time i saw a LR in a betrep video. :question:

It's all gone to repulsors, impulsors, this pulsor, that pulsor.

Does anyone still use land raiders in their SM armies? Just curious. It;'s been so long since i saw on in a video.

Dakka Forum: Codex:Death Guard December 2020

Posted: 2020-11-27 12:59:07
Forum post by Jidmah, 40 responses at time of this post.

Since the news are getting lost in the thread about those foolish followers of the corpse emperor, I asked for permission to create a separate one for the sons of Mortarion.

What is known so far?

GW has confirmed the codex for December, see here: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/10/15/warhammer-40000-the-codex-roadmap/

A new HQ model which (according to the stream) is supposed to be an expert for ordinance and supports daemon engines: https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/oS00mgXKQMqBqwNw.jpg

Misamic Malignifier, our faction terrain that provides cover and -1 to hit for those already in cover, and it has some sort of MW aura, like many DG things. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/11/11/new-death-guard-terrain-sighted/

Leaked datasheet for Myphitic Blighthauler
Changes: WS/BS improved from 4+ to 3+, one more wound, one more attack. Weapons unchanged. https://i.imgur.com/s4LiAB2.png

Leaked datasheet for Typhus
Changes: +1" movement, +2 attacks, Destroyer Hive missing, blight grenades missing(?) https://i.imgur.com/KXHKcrF.png

Leaked datasheet for Foetid-Bloat Drone
Changes: +1 WS & BS, +1 Attack, -1 Wound (no degrading stats)
Fleshmower -1S (no idea on bonus attacks due to simplified sheet)
Heavy Blight Launcher +1AP, 2D instead of D3
Plaguespitter gets 12" range and fixed S6
Probe (its default melee weapon) lowered from D3 damage to 1D https://i.imgur.com/g9valpN.png

About box datasheet leaks: We know that some of these do have errors, but are in general leaks for Space Marines and Necrons were spot on.
Note that these datasheets only show stats and no rules whatsoever and no rules have been factored into their stats. For example, attacks form hatred blows would be in addition to any stats these sheets show, and none of them would show DR or plague weapon rules.
Expect these stats to be exactly what will be printed into the codex.

This is not a thread about loyalist space marines.
