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.

Dakka Forum: Can T'au Vectored Manoeuvering Thrusters be used to get within 1" of the Enemy?


Posted: 2019-05-22 23:59:07
Forum post by Morkphoiz, 36 responses at time of this post.

It is a T'au relic. One of my buddys likes to pull a cheesy move where he moves up the board with his coldstar first turn, shoots and then immediately moves 6" into Close Combat range.

The relic rules are word for word:

T?AU SEPT BATTLESUIT only. This model may immediately move
up to 6" after attacking in the Shooting phase.


This way he completely avoids overwatch and shuts down things like Leman Russes with ease for the next turn. This is quite a loophole because while there are rules preventing this from happening in the movement phase there are no such restrictions in the shooting phase. Overwatch also doesnt happen in the Shooting Phase. Since he then starts his Fighting Phase within 1" of me he even gets to attack with his Coldstar. It is quite infuriating. I cannot find anything in any rules or FAQs that forbids him to do that but maybe I have overlooked something?

Can somebody please help me out on this?

Dakka Forum: Primaris Psyker with Sisters of Silence and Astra Militarum Strategems


Posted: 2019-05-22 18:59:07
Forum post by Type40, 36 responses at time of this post.

If I was to have a Custodes Army with a vangaurd detatchment of sisters of silence including a primaris psyker as an HQ
What stratagems would I have access too ? Would they be able to use Astra Militarum Strategems ?

What makes a detatchment an "astra militarum" detatchment ?

What rules should each detatchment be following ? do the sisters of silence get any other rules from the Astra Militarum codex ? or anything else I may be missing ?

Dakka Daily Poll: How much is a good price for a fully plastic 6x4 battlefield (in USD)?


Posted: 2019-05-22 09:59:07
How much is a good price for a fully plastic 6x4 battlefield (in USD)?
N/A - I dont play games that need a battlefield
$0-1 - I'll only ever build my own
$1-$40 - Super cheap or not interested
$41-$80 - Around the level of cost of materials for building my own
$81-$100 - Up to $100 seems reasonable
$101-$130 - Slightly more premium priced due to the time savings
$131-$150 - Up to $150 for the ready to go quality
$151-$175 - Still much easier than doing it myself
$176-$200 - The portability justifies the price
$201+ - I've got no upper spending limit for something that serves the purpose perfectly.
