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: What Design Space is left in 40k?

Posted: 2021-07-29 05:59:07
Forum post by Tawnis, 36 responses at time of this post.

So, I got to talking with ProfSrlojohn in the thread on factions to add to 40k and it got me thinking a lot on what they could mechanically and thematically add to the game. I wanted to post a separate thread here for that discussion. What design space could be tapped into for a new Xenos army? (Before anyone goes off on balancing the game before anything else is added, this is more meant as a thought exercise on game design and themes than a "should this be done right now" kind of thing.)

The main one we were discussing was the Hrud: They're all over the galaxy and would make a good small scale army all while looking crazy bad ass. Also, given their unique properties, I think they stand the best chance of being a new army with a radically difference playstyle. If they can get the feel of them aging their opponents to death out in a unique way on the tabletop, that would be fantastic. It could perhaps be a Mortal Wound focused army, but with lots of Auras? It would have to be really well balanced to make sure that it's not too OP or UP, but it would fit flavorfully. It's very clearly stated in the lore that armor and force fields don't protect you from the Hrud. They are also a scavenger race, like the Orks in the aspect but actually using the tech instead of just jamming every square peg into a round hole. Could be something there to give them some manor or traditional armor support? Maybe scavenged Necron tech as it doesn't really age. Maybe do what they did with the Ynnari but on a grander scale, with a few unique units and some Hrud conversion kits. They could really get creative with the stealth elements too, think outside the box. Right now all we've had is -1 to hit at x range, or can't be target if it's not the closest unit. While that's fine, it doesn't really scream invisible army. Maybe something like the blip tokens used in SH? You could deploy your Hr...
