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: SOB variety

Posted: 2021-10-09 22:59:07
Forum post by Insectum7, 36 responses at time of this post.

Soooo, from the recently closed (which veered way off topic to the subject-that-shall-not-be-named) thread. I'm looking for actual quotes from recent SOB codexes or other material regarding potential variety.

The major reference that I have is the 3rd ed book which mentions that Minor Orders "became independent of the Orders that founded them, establishing their own traditions, doctrines, livery and titles".

The good Lord Damocles provided: 'Where the bulk of the Imperium?s military forces comprise the motley cultures of thousands of worlds, the Sisters of each Order are bound by the same faith and teachings as one another, casting aside the trappings of whichever society they were born into so that they may best serve the Emperor. / Yet there are some differences between Orders in terms of their rites, their rituals and the way they bring the Ecclesiarchy?s wrath to unbelievers.'
Codex: Adepta Sororitas (8th ed.), pg.13

Can anyone else provide any further sources? Do Sisters have a 9th book? Anything in Black Library?

Dakka Forum: Octarius Campaign content announcement

Warcom posted the table of contents for the Octarius campaign book: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2021/10/14/prepare-yourself-for-the-mayhem-of-war-zone-octarius-with-a-sneak-peek-inside-rising-tide/

I know positivity isn't popular here, least of all, positivity about a campaign book- but this does look like the best campaign book so far.

Rules for all the legacy terrain (like the Bastion and the Void Shield Generator), and Crusade content for the Nids and Guard.

I will say (before the white knight comments start to fly) that the inclusion of long awaited fortification stats does make this book a little too "must have" where the other campaign books tried hard to provide content that was interesting while still being optional (as opposed to PA, which was almost essential for some armies).

What d'ya think?

Dakka Forum: More damage not less!

Forum post by Daedalus81, 37 responses at time of this post.

This reddit thread talks a lot about what I like in 40K right now, which is the granularity. It also talks about some of what stresses people out.

The gist is taking things like the Multimelta down to one shot, but 1D6+2 damage and then double damage at 12". Then we have a weapon that no longer beats out a Heavy Bolter at killing marines, because all that extra damage is simply wasted and you have half the shots. The MM then becomes a more appropriate AT weapon. We still need to tweak the tanks, but then doubling the wounds wound then be a viable path.

Other things like weapons that get +1 to hit vs 11+ models ( stubbers ), +1 to hit vs vehicle ( lascannon ), or even " all is dust " for vehicles.

Anyway it's a good read so give it a peak. The solutions don't add dice to the system and just reinforce the granularity.

Dakka Forum: Colony 87 wave 4 Kickstarter: Oct 12-Nov 2 (500% funded)

Crooked Dice announced a wave 4 KS for their Colony 87 line of sci fi civilians.

Behind the scenes we have prepping for our next Kickstarter - a fourth wave for Colony 87 - our retro sci-fi range. In the autumn we'll be uncovering more layers of the infamous outpost on the edge of known space.
We will take you uptown to the Spires to meet the founding, and fading, House Vandestine; travel into the Dog Wastes with the Long Tail Caravan; pop to the Tiered Market; and then visit the Breaker Family Bynson salvaging in the wreck of the Mist Ship.
Here's a wee preview of some of the 40+ figures we hope to add to the range. Watch the skies...

So if you are concerned GEV troops are blown off the table in seconds, what's the solution... Well obviously more special exceptions and CPs

Plus everyone gets to be Creed.
