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.

I've been posting stuff here for a while now, so thought it was high time I started my own thread to keep everything in one place. I play Blood Angels so most of what I'll be posting will be them, but I do occasionally deviate and paint some Orks, Skitarii, misc Imperial Agents etc.

I won't delve too deep into the archives (you can see a bit more on my website http://www.themightybrush.com) but here are a few of my most recent completed projects.

Dakka Forum: Adeptus custodes codex thoughts?

Posted: 2018-01-22 14:59:07
Forum post by lolman1c, 64 responses at time of this post.

So, like with the previous codices, reviews are now comming out of the wood work and I'm wondering what everyone thinks of the Golden Home Boyz. Are they OP? Are they a waste of money? Discuss below!

A few things of note from my personal opinion:
1. In an interview the 40k devs told us that the terminators were really good vs hordes and took out like 30 or something boyz. This makes me worried for boyz because the current boyz look like they could deal and survive the terminators pretty well. As far as i know they only have a d3 assualt weapon and 1 more long range weapon so I don't know how they're able to take out 30boyz if there is only a max of like 9 shots comming out? Maybe someone could clarify.
2. They honestly don't sound that bad... They're expensive but a cool little side project for a lot of people. I have little interest in them and have to admit they sound a little underwhelming as the mega super heros of the universe who fought alongside the emperor himself.

Dakka Forum: general movement rules interpretation

Posted: 2018-01-22 10:59:07
Forum post by Gretten, 66 responses at time of this post.

So, there was great competition in Russia called "Black winter", and there i`ve found 2 general cancer rules interpretation + 1 not so cancer, but very counterintuitive.

1) You can premeasure everything (rulebook 174 - left column). You can place your miniatures on the table to premeasure their deployment, and not 1 unit, but 5 (or any larger. U can place ur shoe on the table and measure from it any distance) at once, and then say that they are deployed 1 after 1. Is it valid?
2) Hull based models and their rules is another cancer. Ever saw shadowblade drifting on 1 track to move through units? I saw. Ever saw shadowblade positioned, say, on a side in order to block LOS for every other model behind him? I saw. And it appears none of the rules restrictes such behaviour of hulled based models. Any other opinion?
3) Not really cancer, but counterintuitive - Lets imagine we hav 2 units with 2 powers each. on the psycic phase you are not restricted to cast 2 spells from each one consistently. U can cast 1 from 1st. then 2nd from 2nd unit, then again 3d from 1st unit and 4th from 2nd unit. Is it valid?
