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: Astra Militarum: More Competitive in 8th Edition?

So, we're starting to learn more and more about the 8th Edition of Warhammer. One of the thing's I was really looking forward to is how the Guard was going to fair in this new update. And now that they've added some updates:

And the source for general updates of course:

So I'm personally seeing a much more competitive Guard in this edition. It looks like vehicles in general are getting a boost with the new rules. As some of you here know, I've really loved running the Guard tank armies, even though they were woefully underpowered and very easily blown up by melta and grav guns. The new Leman Russ rules are basically stating that they have 12 wounds and toughness 8, along with a 3+ Armor save. That I think should make a huge difference in armored warfare in general, since one of the biggest issues with tanks (in particular LR) was that they don't have any sort of save, like jinking.

Orders are now automatic, and seem to be better, plus tons of lasgun shots from Guard armies that all have a chance to hurt will probably bring just about any kind of unit to its knees eventually.

I'm curious to hear what others thing though.

Inceptor vs Rubric Marines

Movement: 10" vs 5"

Effective range: 28" vs 29"

Shots at 12"/18"/24": 18/18/0 vs 9/4/4

Wounds: 6 vs 5

Mortal wounds per game: 3 vs 4

Wounds lost per 20 regular bolter shots: 1.47 vs 1.09

Wounds lost per 20 regular bolter shots in cover: .71 vs 1.09

Fire power lost at 2/4/6 rounds: 33%/100%/100% vs 44%/88%/100%

Fire power lost at 2/4/6 rounds in cover: 0%/33%/66% vs 44%/88%/100%

Deployment options: anywhere 9" away from enemies vs regular deployment.

MEQ killed in single round of shooting 12"/18"/24": 3.92/3.92/0 vs 1.96/0.87/0.87

Melee wounds per turn vs MEQ: .76 vs 1.29

Melee wounds taken vs 10 MEQ: .718 vs 1.09 (.545?)

Power level: 8 vs 8

Strait up fight: Rubrics lose after 2 rounds of fighting doing 1-2 wounds. Even if they don't deep strike.

So basically if you can manage to find cover Inceptors are somewhere between 1.5 and 1.75 times better then Rubrics, but are the same power level...right.


Plz do not try to add "context" anything you add to one side you would have to add to the other to equal it out. Making it a fruitless effort.

Keep in mind that adding more Rubricae would not decrease the problem it would increse the problem. Inceptors have a clear advantage add more units multiplies the gap it does NOT shrink it.
