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: AOS Openday - news, previews, info and all from the big weekend! Includes all games not just...

Title says it all here's the one stop thread for all your news and hints from the day - if you find info on a blog, photos or you're there yourself (have fun!) then throw it in here.

One thing not yet mentioned but which I've seen on Firestorm Games webstore is that GW is opening up more models to be ordered by 3rd party stores. Mostly a big chunk of 40K stuff but a couple of kits for AoS as well. It includes things like upgrade kits and metal models, even some sisters like the Penitent Engine

Box art (showing contents) for the next terrain expansion for Warcry is on show, looks like the full shattered realms mega kit in the box along with likely a base to play on. https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/AoSOpenDay-Jul20-Stormvault4fess.jpg

Orruks - a combined Tome that features 3 sets of alliance abilities; one for Ironjawz, one for Bonesplittesr and one for a combined WAAARGH of the two forces.

Cities of Sigmar meanwhile is a massive mish mash of humans, dwarves and elves -a Last Alliance ready to stand against the dark lor...no wait that's not AoS. Anyway a big mish mash and also options to take several other separate armies as part of the core force not just as allies (no allies limit). It's a massive soup Battletome so will be interesting to see how it handles internal balance and balance with the rest of the game.

Dakka Forum: [Apocalypse] Collation of various rules issues, broken RaW, "oddities" and questions \_(?)_/

List of questions for FAQ:
If I concede, does my opponent still win the battle? What happens in a Team Game if one player concedes?When "Chaos Boon", "Gift of Chaos", and "Bolt of Change" Command Assets say to replace a model with a CHAOS SPAWN model, does that mean any datasheet with the CHAOS SPAWN keyword?Is it intended for detachments with units of 30 Ork Boyz to never be able to have a WARLORD?Is it intended for detachments of Wraith Constructs led by a Spirit Seer to not generate Command Assets?Are the effects of T'au Drones cumulative if you have two of the same done?What happens if you use the "Demolitions" Command Asset on a terrain feature that is glued to the table?What happens if the "Medicae Supplies" Command Asset requires you to remove more damage counters than the unit currently has?How do Movement Trays interact with rules that require Base Contact?How does Phantasm interact with Barrage weapons and units that are not in Line of Sight?Do you have to prove you've selected a legal card when searching the Command Asset deck?Do Gargoyles really have 6 attacks at 30 models?Why do Chaos Spawn get slower at 3 models then faster again at 4 or 5?0. Do I die lose if I am killed concede?.If I concede, does my opponent still win the battle? https://i.imgur.com/SXS4hZ0.gif On a (slightly) more serious note, what happens in a Team Game if one player concedes (for whatever reason, perhaps they had to go home and take their models with them)? Does the entire team have to concede, or can the remaining player continue on?
1. QUESTOR TRAITORIS Faction Trait and Command Assets are non-functional.One QUESTOR TRAITORIS unit in the Detachment becomes a CHARACTER and so can be a WARLORD if they are the Detachment's Commander.KEYWORDS
Throughout this section you will come across the <QUESTOR TRAITORIS> keyword. This is shorthand for either the INFERNAL HOUSEHOLD key...
