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: Weapon strength and damage

Posted: 2022-07-05 18:59:07
Forum post by jeff white, 38 responses at time of this post.

I was reading comments listening to Auspex Tactics and saw one that said that plasma guns don?t warrant the extra attention because they don?t cause enough extra damage, and make resolution of shooting attacks for squads with some special or varied weapons too difficult. The idea seemed to be to get rid of the distinction.

I remember when plasma guns were to be feared, and wonder about the consensus here. It seems to me that bolters should be str 3 d 1, las guns 2 d 1, plasma str 4 d 1 or 5 d 2 (roll a 1 and lose a wound) and should be one of the deadlier guns in the game. Heavier stronger things should start being expensive in 40k imho to represent its focal scale of engagement.

So, what do you think? What should be the average weapon str and dam in 40K? Should plasma be special, at all?

Dakka Forum: Warhammer 40k rumors for a 10th edition in 2023.

Games Workshop apparently has settled for a three years schedule for W40k editions, 9th have been released in 2020, so no surprise to see rumors for a 2023 revision.
This is spotted from reddit. Please take them with the right amount of grains of salt, as there is a near correlation of these rumors and whishlists from Bolter&Chainsword forum. :salt:

Dakka Forum: Da Dark Angelz II: Waaagh! Harder

Posted: 2022-07-05 04:59:07
Forum post by Arakasi, 36 responses at time of this post.


Back in 2009 I started my first blog on this site - Da Dark Angelz - which ran until 2013. In 2020, I started Arakasi Reloaded as another attempt at resurrecting my beleaguered hobby, and, with a bit of luck, inspire me to revisit my Orks. Well, that day has arrived.

This blog may be a bit meandering, depending on where my muse takes me, but it will maintain a consistent theme of the Orks of Da Dark Angelz. There are projects to complete from the original blog, projects that have been started but not seen the light of day on Dakka during the dark times, new projects to start and who knows what the future might hold.

To start with, I recently acquired:Combat Patrol: OrksOrks: Killdakka WarbandOrk Warboss Grukk's Boss MobOrk Boyz (old)Ork Lootas
Which opens up a number of projects, new and old:Attack of the Clones - how to convert 40 of the new Ork Boyz to minimise their underlying duplicative nature.A Tale of Four Warbosses - finish four (or more) Warbosses - Morgrim (my converted Warboss in Mega Armour), Combat Patrol Warboss in Mega Armour, Grukk, Forge World Warboss on bike, maybe the Assault on Black Reach Warboss.Deffkoptas - old and new.Deff Dreads and Kans - complete my Deffwing Dread and also a plastic Dread and Kans with appropriate swappable weapons.
To begin with, I figured I would start with the new Boyz, so after a quick clean up of my modelling area, I was ready to begin:

Unsurprisingly, the "default" build went together reasonably quickly and painlessly:

Having dealt with easy build before, the only change I made was to trim the internal pegs to ensure everything fit toge...
