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: Counter-Offensive

Simple question - What purpose does this Core Stratagem have?
And No, this isn't related to the 'Next' thing.

I am still relearning, so I might be overlooking something but the order of operations seems to be 'You Fight, I fight, You Fight, I fight.' A Stratagem that allows you to select an Eligible Unit to fight with, after your opponent has already attacked, seems to mimic the default order of events anyway... all for the price of two Command Points. While I can envision a handful of niche situations where two sequential attacks might be possible, most Rules seem to avoid that with the good old 'attack now, attack again at end of phase' trick or simply allowing the unit to be picked a second time during the default I-you-I process.

A few examples might help me understand just what this Stratagem does.

Warhammer fest day 2 is summed up here

If I have read this correct is it saying that if I want to run a disciples of belakor army I need to buy Book of Fire. And indeed if I want Belakors 40K data sheet I need to buy a book that I assume is 20

Dakka Forum: Drazhar's Fight Twice and Charger's Priority

Posted: 2021-05-04 19:59:07
Forum post by Audustum, 36 responses at time of this post.

So for those who don't know, Drazhar has a rule that lets him fight twice. Unlike most fight twice abilities, this does not specify 'at the end of the phase'.

Drazhar's Rule

This model can be selected to fight one additional time in each Fight phase. It must be eligible to fight each time it is selected to do so.

Let's assume Drazhar charges some random unit and Tormentor's goes off (so they can't use Counter Offensive).

Can Drazhar be activated twice before the unit he charged is allowed to activate? Does the priority from being a charger work on both activations of Drazhar or do the rules require it to be used at non-chargers priority (i.e. normal activation)?
