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: Make everything worse to make the game better!

Posted: 2019-11-10 20:59:07
Forum post by some bloke, 36 responses at time of this post.

So, every time I hear peoples suggestions to "fix a unit", it involves making said unit more effective, or cheaper, and invariably making them better.

This same mentality is evident in GW's method of problem solving - just make the weak things better, continue until eventually whoever has turn 1 tables the opponent and wins.

My suggestion - make everything worse. specifically at killing. I'd like to hear anyone's ideas for blanket changes which will make the game more restrictive or make the units less effective - but in a good way!

These are the generalised ideas; there will be exceptions, but not many.

Rather than making vehicles move and shoot heavy weapons, instead make it so that infantry cannot move and shoot heavy weapons. at all. you move, you don't shoot. vehicles still can, at -1. such is the advantage of being a vehicle.

Infantry can move and shoot, but only assault weapons can be fired normally after moving - rapid fire is at -1 to hit. Heavy, as stated above, cannot be fired after moving. Perhaps allow them to move up to 1/2 their movement stat and lose the -1 to hit for RF weapons. RF weapons cannot fire at max range unless you stand still. All SM abilities which make you count as standing still only remove the -1 to hit, they don't allow full-range firing.

Nothing can be fired after advancing.

Any weapons firing over 36" are at -1 to hit.

Ordnance weapons (anything sufficiently large will go back to being ordnance) means that non-ordnance weapons fired by that model are at -1 to hit if the ordnance weapon fires, unless superheavy.

Heavy Ordnance Weapons do as above, but affect superheavies. Heavy Ordnance cannot be fired after moving, except by superheavies.

Falling back is a 2D6" move, and units can pursue to stop them. Falling back can become a mechanic for moving assault units away from the rest of your force, instead of...

I'm wondering what the general spread of anti tank weaponry and tactics are across all factions is.
