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: Forgeworld Units are depressingly bad in Apocalypse

Posted: 2019-07-19 15:59:07
Forum post by Tank_Dweller, 36 responses at time of this post.

The bad units are far to numerous to list here so I will just give a couple of examples.

Here is the GW Knight Paladin its has a power rating of 24 with 4 Attacks, its main ranged weapon is a Rapid-fire Battle Cannon with 72" range 4 attacks with a SAP of 6+ and a SAT of 6+. Now compare this with the FW Knight Lancer which comes in at a power rating of 23 and puzzlingly FW Knights only have 3 Attacks, its main armament is a Shock Lance with only an 18" range but you would expect it to particularly deadly at this range considering the long range damage output of the Rapid-fire Battle Cannon but no it has only 2 attacks with a depressing SAP of 9+ and a SAT of 9+, even a Heavy Bolter has a superior SAP of 7+. I mean apart from the cool factor why would you even consider this over a Paladin its not even close it has less range, less attacks and lower SAP/SAT. I should note that both have comparable cc weapons but the -1 attack on the Lancer does sting, the Paladin also has a couple of Heavy Stubbers to boot, it also the option of taking a missile/rocket pod or a Twin Icarus Autocannon.

Now Titans. Titans seem to have good survivability but there damage output is depressingly lacklustre. Lets compare with a GW Shadowsword it has a power rating of 25 it has 5 wounds with a 6+ save, armed with Volcano Cannon with 72" range 4 attacks with a SAP of 7+ and a SAT of 3+ it also has the Destroyer rule meaning it wounds twice for each succesful wound so it has a potential damage output of 8 wounds, it also has a Twin Heavy Bolter with 36" range 2 attacks with a SAP of 7+ and a SAT of 9+ you may as well pay the the Extra 4 PR to get an extra 4 Lascannons and 4 Twin Heavy Bolters or Heavy Flamers. So assuming you took the Heavy Bolters then for 29 PR you have a combined potential damage output of 22 wounds. Now the Warlord Titan has a PR of 154 with an impressive 36 wounds a...
