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!

Forums

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.

Articles

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: Cursed City - An Explanation

Like a wally I posted this on B&C while my brain was in neutral and obviously it got removed 'cos it's not 40k. So while I don't visit here often it seemed the best place to put it...?


A chum and I dropped into Warhammer World at the weekend as we'd not been there for well over a year and I wanted to pick up a Reaver titan to commemorate a parent who I'd lost just over 12 months ago. The WHW shops were having issues with a router that connected their card payment infrastructure to the outside world (it turned out to be a power issue which wasn't resolved by the time we left and unfortunately they were all out of Imperial Reavers anyway) so while we were waiting for an IT bod to show up and fix it we politely harassed a staff member in a different colour Warhammer shirt with idle chit-chat and I decided to chance asking about Cursed City and what happened to it despite GW retail staff usually knowing little more than we do.

It turns out that the chap, who will remain nameless in case he could get in bother, knew pretty much exactly what had happened with that release. Now, you guys can believe what you will - I rarely visit here these days, popularity isn't something I particularly care about nor do I have any need to make stuff up. So here's the skinny:

Games Workshop have a three year lead time on releases from when they sit down and plan stuff out to when that product gets scheduled for release. So all the stuff we're looking at now which is all fancy and new, the Design Studio started working on three Christmasses ago and have long since moved on to newer things that we'll see in a bunch of years down the line. Tooling for plastic items and print runs for card items and whatnot are kicked off halfway through that process...as an internal fact check for myself this all matched exactly with what a Jes Goodwin-headed panel told us at the 7th edition e...

Dakka Forum: 9th Edition is the Quagmire Edition Because GW Has Not Pushed Back The Release Date of 10th ...


Posted: 2021-06-11 07:59:07
Forum post by Gregor Samsa, 36 responses at time of this post.

Let me begin with saying that I really think 9th edition is one of the best editions of 40k since probably, what, 2002? Of course this is GW we're talking about so "best" is an exceptionally low bar. A child's wading pool really.

Anyhow,

No business could have anticipated COVID, but all businesses were forced to react. GW should have responded to the data that demonstrated how stay at home orders were fuelling hobby purchases and subsequently sped up the Codex releases. Before everyone gets in here with the "but the supply chain!!". Please understand how low-effort and cheaply done the manufacturing and production of these codex are.

Warhammer rules supplements are not vehicles or hospital equipment, they're comic books that make the average fanzine or manga in Japan look like a timeless work of art. It was very much in the realm of power for a 3.74b market cap organisation to respond to current market shaping events and deliver product in a reasonable timeline.

For whatever excuse regarding the delayed codex release schedule that gets trotted out, the reality is that this timeline has damaged the coherency of 9th edition.

Undoubtedly, GW will release 10th edition on schedule. Because of this, at the rate we are receiving 9th editions codexes, the 9th edition of 40k is being undermined by the slow drip of fundamentally necessary adjustments of the game.

9th edition does not "fully" exist until ALL factions have their own codex.


Believe me I know the replies will fill with "but in previous editions many factions never got a codex at all!!". This is true - and that is also a ridiculous and unacceptable metric that can in no way be used to justify appropriate game design. You have to ask better of GW, please. For the price of a fully painted 2000 point army, you deserve better, I promise.
