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: [Poll] When IG are redone, what should GW do?

Posted: 2018-10-22 19:59:07
Forum post by Kid_Kyoto, 36 responses at time of this post.

Sooner or later the 20 year old Catachans and 15 year old Cadians will have to be redone or replaced. Hopefully the IG will finally get a plastic kit on par with the Empire Handgunners, GS cult, Skitarii and Necromunda kits.

When that happy day comes what should GW do? Replace the Cadians, put out a different regiment, put out a new one?

Assuming of course we don't get a dozen regiment kits of course... Let's just assume there can be only one.

Dakka Forum: Has there been a Xenos release in 8th where Imperials also didn't get something?

Forum post by fe40k, 36 responses at time of this post.

The new "Ork codex is coming" pre-order announcement ended with... Sly Marbo.

That reminds me of the time when GW announced three Xenos codecii in a row (for the first time since the start of 8th); only to end it with "Look at this cool Imperial Knight!".

I was curious as to why most of the terrain that I see is always urban?

Dakka Forum: How many people here play against orks on a regular basis?

Posted: 2018-10-22 15:59:07
Forum post by lolman1c, 36 responses at time of this post.

I'm wondering how many people here actually play against Orks. I went to a tournament this week and brought my Evil sunz orks to compare them before and after the codex. Long story short... they got demolished (turn 2 every unit was off the board I rolled so badly). However, while i was there I faced about 5 people. 3 of the five people had never even played against an ork player despite being in the hobby for a number of years. In fact, one player demanded to see my index as he didn't believe me when I was firing nowhere near the number of shots he was led to believe Ork had. The other two said this was the first vechile Ork army they had ever gone against and was surprised to know we even had army builds outside of mass boyz.

I didn't think there were so few Ork players... so I'm wondering if this was just a fluke or have many people here never faced orks?

Dakka Forum: Plastic alternatives to Games-Workshop sculpts

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

This isn't the first time I've seen an alternative to a GW sculpt that I immediately fell in love with. The problem is that it's resin, and I have no interest in anything that isn't hard plastic. Are any of you aware of any companies that produce beautiful alternatives to GW sculpts in hard plastic?

Dakka Daily Poll: What is your opinion on measuring distances in wargaming.

Posted: 2018-10-22 09:59:07
What is your opinion on measuring distances in wargaming.
Every measurement must be exactly perfect every time, if you move a space marine 6.01 inches in his movement phase you are cheating.
As exact as possible, the game will take a lot longer, but it will be worth it in the end.
Try to be exact, but don't sweat the little stuff, especially in the first turn or 2.
Measure exactly for the first guy in the unit, then just arrange the rest so they are in roughly the correct position around him.
Eyeball it.
Just put your guys where ever, we assume superhuman space marines can manipulate the space-time continuum.
To cut out all the boring tactical positioning stuff we just arrange our troops in melee at the start, no measurements needed.

Dakka Forum: Emperor officially a Perpetual now?

Posted: 2018-10-21 10:59:07
Forum post by Stux, 36 responses at time of this post.

Fact 206 from the 500 facts article:

Some humans in the Warhammer 40,000 universe bear a rare feature that makes them functionally immortal. They are known as Perpetuals, and the two most famous examples are Vulkan, the Primarch of the Salamanders Legion, and the Emperor of Mankind.

I've seen a lot of debate in the past about whether the Emperor is a perpetual, and this seems to confirm it!

That implies to me that the Emperor originated as a regular perpetual (as far as that's a thing!), and gained his additional abilities on top of that. As opposed to being a completely inhuman entity of other origin.

Dakka Forum: What beer would describe your 40k army?

Posted: 2018-10-21 05:59:07
Forum post by ClockworkZion, 36 responses at time of this post.

Since 40k is very beer and pretzels and the topic of beer came up in another thread, what beer would you use to describe your army?

For the non-drinkers, what soda would you compare your army to?

Dakka Forum: Agis' Star Wars Legion minis - Swamp trooper squad leader

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

After taking some comparison pics, I finally painted some more minis. http://www.adpublishing.de/assets/images/SWL_Rebels_and_Trooper.jpg

I worked on some more Rebels. Even bigger than Rex! The trooper left is the Legion Duros trooper with a head swap and some extra shoulder pads, the right trooper received a heroic scale Statuesque female head.
Works fine IMO since the coat is so formless it could also be a female under it. ;) http://www.adpublishing.de/assets/images/SWL_Rex_and_two.jpg

And my favourte mini mix so far: http://www.adpublishing.de/assets/images/Imperial_Assault_Ashoka_and_Rebels.jpg
Chopper, Ashoka, Rex and Hera!

More pics and more comparison pics are on my site: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/legion.html
