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!

Forums

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.

Articles

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.

Sponsor Press Release:
NEXUS: BOARDGAME Kickstarter


Posted: 2020-09-29 04:00:00


NEXUS is a brutal and irreverent story-driven arena combat game that takes place on massive space barges. Packed with rabid and bloodthirsty fans, these barges feature an array of deadly hazards that are designed to indiscriminately kill or injure all combatants. Full of beautifully illustrated and amusingly inappropriate cards and lore, each bout leaves you with a story to tell and laughs to be had by all.

• Bloodthirsty Combat - Engage in bouts that pit fighters against each other in an all-or-nothing battle where only one will emerge victorious... and possibly alive. But do not worry, even a loss can build your fame and wealth enough to defeat your opponent in the only outcome that truly matters, your rise to power.

• Command Your Champion - Known as helots, these mindless genetic freaks rely on your instructions to put them in the best positions to win. Overpower your opponent’s helot with your champion’s brute strength or use your helot’s cunning to lure its adversaries into hazards.

• Adapt, Evolve, and Conquer - Switch up your strategy on the fly, take advantage of turning points, triggered events, positioning bonuses, and other tactics that can turn a losing bout into a rousing victory.

NEXUS miniatures are ideal for both beginners and experienced painters. The detailed texturing lets beginners paint them quickly using basic techniques while still delivering amazing results. For the more advanced painters there is plenty of real estate for creativity and more challenging work.

NEXUS launches on KICKSTARTER on Sept 29 for a 30-day campaign sure to feature plenty of excitement and surprises.

Dakka Forum: What fraction of your collection is (loyalist) Space Marines?


Posted: 2020-09-27 19:59:07
Forum post by Insectum7, 36 responses at time of this post.

Companion poll to the other one, out of curiousity.

Lets assume Space Marines are loyalist chapters, including Grey Knights, and Deathwatch.
I'd be interested to know about Chaos Space Marines too, but let's just try loyalists for now.

Edit: I don't think we need too much precision, but for extra credit, find number-of-models percentage and points-value/power-level percentage and combine the two. A rough aggregation of models and table top value.

Dakka Forum: Favorite new army

Forum post by BrianDavion, 36 responses at time of this post.

So since 6th edition (which gave us Imperial Knights) we've gotten an amazing amount of armies, I'm curious which one is everyone's favorite?

BTW I had to think long and hard about including Ynnari on this list as they're only 3 models and modifers to soup, but I figured that I'll be generous. I didn't include sisters of battle because despite only being plastic now they where actually always here. and thus technicly are not a NEW army

Dakka Forum: How are there no Salamander succusor chapters?

Forum post by chimera0205, 36 responses at time of this post.

Ok like I get the Salamanders got hit hard by heresy but I refuse to believe there was ONLY a thousand of them left and exactly a thousand at that. Thats downright horseshit. And even if that were somehow true how have they not built up enough geneseed for a couple successors in the ten fucking millenia since Horus bit the dust. Like one Tyranid Splinter or sizable Orc Waaghhh hits Nocturne at the wrong moment and the Sons of Vulkan get exterminated. Talk about too many eggs in one basket. Additonal chapters even just 2 or 3 would ensure that a single small Tyranid Hive flest or mid sized Orc Fleet cant wipe Vulkans geneseed out entirely. Doesnt the Imperium the risk of losing access to an entire primarchs genetic material? Even if the Salamanders themselves dont want any successor chapters the Imperium should force them to set up a couple jyst to enusre a single Ork Warlord who decides that the Jolly Green Giants make for a fun fight cant wipe out the bulk of a primarchs genetic material.
Like jesus christ. Youd think thr Imperium of all people would understand the concept of Redundancy..
