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: So what does everyone think the nids will do with all this warp stuff happening?

Nids seem to mostly avoid direct contact with warp stuff, unless that's been retconned, so as to keep away mutations and such given the galaxy has some pretty bug warp rifts in it I'm actually wondering now where the bugs will likely even go. Another thing is they've always been moving from the east to terra due to the astronomicon's light, but now that's obscured mostly to the eastern side of the galaxy does anyone else think the bugs will be flying as blind as the Imperium over there? There's that little gap down near macragge some of the fleets were around anyway so it's likely that since some would see the light still they may curve the others down there to continue their trip; but this would mean the bugs would probably sort of bottleneck down near macragge. Would also possibly save the blood angles since the fleet could divert or use them as fuel to divert still. :D

Dakka Forum: Agis Primaris Marines

Forum post by AAN, 42 responses at time of this post.

Finally, the new 40K has arrived! 8th edition looks very promising, hopefully next week I have my 1st game.
I have not really played 40K since 5th edition (really did not like the direction the rules were taking).

I was also very curious about the new Marines. So without any further blah blah, here is my 1st Primaris Marine. http://www.adpublishing.de/Primaris_Intercessor_BA_1.jpg
Primaris Intercessor Brother Marine of the the 2nd company, 7th squad.

Right out of the box, only the head is an old Mk VI ?Beaky? helmet. There was a lot of talk about head swaps, so I wanted to try it.
The Primaris are great minis, but are rather static, they are not as pose able as the older plastic Space Marine kits. Even the shoulder pads are fixed!

And the always asked for comparison picture: http://www.adpublishing.de/assets/images/Primaris_Intercessor_BA_1_comp.jpg
Tanith Guardsman, Primaris Marine, Grey Knight and Eldar Ulthwe Guardian.

and as always more on my site: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/space_marines.html

Dakka Forum: To Ynnari, or not to Ynnari?

Posted: 2017-06-28 18:59:07
Forum post by Galef, 119 responses at time of this post.

So with all Craftworlders, Dark Eldar and Harlies having the <Aeldari> keyword, they can all be in the same detachments/army without needing to also be Ynnari.
Since I have played Eldar/DE since 4th ed, even modeling and painting them as 1 army even before "allies" was a thing, this is great for me.
Obviously, I was a fan of the Fracture of Biel-Tan.

But now that I don't have to use multiple detachments with minimum tax units just to field the ones I want, or take them in a Reborn Host, the appeal of Ynnari is not so strong.

So the question of this thread is, what units or combo of units make Ynnari 'work'?
Or are there some non-Ynnari units that really shine with Battle Focus, Power from Pain and Rising Crescendo?

For me, I really like Battle Focus on Shuricannon Bikes. I also plan on using a few Venoms, which do not benefit from either SfD nor PfP.
Same goes for my WK, which I'll still take despite the nerf.
So the units I want to use don't really care about being Ynnari, or would prefer to keep their normal abilities
