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: Guard Project using Death Korps figures

Posted: 2017-02-21 18:59:07
Forum post by goat major, 53 responses at time of this post.

A couple of months ago i started my Death Korps project. I'm more aiming this at being an AM codex army using Death Korps figures rather than using the Forge World lists. This is mainly because I want to be able to find a game more easily once i have finished (although we'll probably be on 12th Ed by then!). I've already finished some infantry and cavalry that i've posted over on the showcase forum http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/707108.page. This month i've moved onto the armour.

The concept of the army is that it is a mobile force that exists to exploit breakthroughs in the trench lines - hence it has more armour & cavalry and fewer footsloggers than a normal Death Korps army. The theme is based around WW1 French - so horizon blue uniforms, cavalry in pseudo Napoleonic uniform and for the armour the elaborate multi coloured designs that the French started to use from c1917 onwards.

This post catches up a bit on my work of the last couple of weeks. I'll try to keep it closer to "real time" from now on.

My armour arrives.....

First i'm tackling the Chimeras. My initial force has four of them : Three carrying Veterans and one command vehicle. I am intending to make each vehicle slightly distinctive with its own story

#1 - Heavily weathered and battle damaged having just been recently in action
#2 - A relatively 'clean' model - this is a replacement vehicle for the original #2 that was recently destroyed
#3 - Support vehicle with lots of baggage and an unditching beam
Command vehicle - comms equipment and the top hatches open to reveal the interior

Here's some of the WIP shots from last week

Stowage rack

Scratchbuilt unditching bea...

Dakka Forum: My latest houserules! (Dark eldar changes in first post!)

Posted: 2017-02-21 05:59:07
Forum post by Lythrandire Biehrellian, 72 responses at time of this post.

I have had these threads in the past, and they end up confusing because there are a LOT of topics happening simultaneously. So, I'm going to start with my general houserules only this time. Every week I will post another faction's eratta to allow for more focused conversation.

General rules
Any model that is a character in a unit receives 1 additional wound as well as any other benefits, to a max of 3W. Codex Eldar, Skitarii, and Harlequins do not gain this benefit.
Storm bolters are strength 5
All twin linked weapons gain a +1 bonus to wound and for armor penetration rolls.
Vehicles are not limited in regards to shooting when performing a ram or tank shock action.
A charging unit only needs to get within 1? of their target to successfully charge.
When a non-superheavy vehicle or building suffers an ?explodes!? or ?detonates? result, treat the strength of the explosion as being equal to the starting hull points of the vehicle.
All missile launchers gain their flakk equivalent upgrade for free.
Smoke launchers may be used when the unit equipped with it is targeted. This replaces the normal benefit (still one use only)
If a piece of wargear increases the toughness of a model equipped, the model in question is still subject to instant death as if it were the original toughness.
Any weapon that is ?strengthx2? is now considered ?strength+4?
If a unit is embarked in a transport and is subject to the ?no escape? rule, the unit inside may use any invulnerable save available to the transport.
glancing hits on vehicles cause an unmodified roll on the vehicle damage table. penetrating hits are the only way to remove hull points.Fortifications take a -1 to rolls on their damage table caused by glancing hits (to a minimum of 1)
if a model has a weapon skill three times or better than the weapon skill of the unit they are targeting they hit on a 2+ (so a model ...
