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 babylon 5, 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: DO you think Grey Knights will be fixed?

Grey Knights basically unplayable and haven't been addressed too much in that department since their release. DO you see a fix in coming? or will they stay the course making minor Adjustments and not a whole redue.

Edit; title changed to reflect contents of the thread by ingtaer.

Have you ever committed to not getting a particular miniature for 40k even if yiu could use it and if so why?

I will never get a tesseract vault for my necron army. 160$ for a model? Long after hell freezes over!

Since a c'tan mini only comes with the vault I'll stick to a proxie for it.

Well, let's see how long this one stays open...

Dakka Forum: Vanguard veteran loadout ideas

Posted: 2019-01-16 02:59:07
Forum post by Galef, 36 responses at time of this post.

I know there are a couple of similar threads, but I wanted to focus on a particular situation and get some addition feedback for my sons' VVs

We will be converting 10 MkIII Marines to be Vanguard Vets with jump packs.
5 will be UMs, 5 will be Salamanders
I'd like some help deciding on weapon loadout that are both cool and iconic, but also fairly useful in casual games

Here are their lists so far:
___UltraMarine Battalion___
Gravis Capt & Lt
5-10 Tacticals with ML and/or Plasma
2x 5 Intercessors
5 Hellblasters
1 Ven Dread w/ Twin Las/ML

___Salamander Battalion___
Jump pack Capt with Relic blade and combi-melta & Lt
5-10 Tacticals with ML and/or Plasma
2x 5 Intercessors
3 Plasma Inceptors
1 Ven Dread w/ 2 Twin Autocannons

So if both lists are adding 5 Vanguard Vets, what loadouts would be best with the units they have?
I certainly think each unit should have 2 Storm Shields and think the Sgt should have either dual Lightning Claws or Hammer
But after that, I can't seem to nail down/distill the best loadout.

I kinda like the "Gunslinger" dual Plasma Pistol build for at least 1 model in each unit, but that dilutes the unit's Melee.
But this build might be good to support/distract from the Inceptors:
Sgt w TH/PP,
2 VV w SS/LC,
2 VV w 2 PP.
That build can drop in near the Inceptors, which will all be near the Jump Capt. That might take a bit of the heat off the Inceptors and help them eliminate threats

For the UMs I was thinking something like:
Sgt w/ dual LCs,
2 VV w TH/PP,
2 VV w SS/chain sword
But we've also talked about models with dual Chainswords and my UM son also likes the Gunslinger idea.
The UM VV squad might be the most difficult to do because he wants a fast Melee unit, but also likes the Gunslinger build

I've also thought about just doing 1 dual Pistol model in each unit just for RoC, but focus the rest of the unit on melee.

What do you guys think of centurion devastators with the anti tank loadout after chapter approved 2018?

Hello all!

I'll be taking over the WC Rumor picture thread for the year. It may take me a couple of days to get all set up. Any and all help from the Dakka Community to help me identify which pics have not been ID'd as of yet, so they might be added to this page, would be greatly appreciated.

Dakka Forum: Privateer Press Artbook and model Kickstarter

Posted: 2019-01-15 22:59:07
Forum post by Overread, 36 responses at time of this post.

The link says it all and shows off some of the artwork! Still funding and aiming to gather enough to print a brand new artbook of over 100 pages long containing much of the concept art and work from the games that PP makes, most notably Warmachine and Hordes. There's also a unique metal model that will ship (around May) earlier than the book and which is usable in Warmachine and also their upcoming stand along game release.

There's also a tier where you can get hold of a canvas work of art from them, note that the final selection of prints for the canvas hasn't been decided upon so if its not shown on the page for canvas drop PP a note to inform them what you'd like to see and they'll use that input to finalise the selection.

Thought I might ask people who are more versed in the lore than me...
What does a pdf on a impreso world look like in terms of equipment, vehicles and man power.
