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: GW rules development team.

I heard somewhere on the internetz that GW's rule development team only consists of like 5 people. Is this true? If so, how can they possibly justify this on a game as widely played and as codex varied as 40k? I mean, FW is presumably even smaller than GW and yet 30k is far more balanced.

Dakka Forum: The Sons of Prospero Go To War!

Forum post by EmberlordofFire8, 57 responses at time of this post.

Greetings! I, in my own stupidity, have fallen in love with Ahrimmans new Horus Heresy mini, and, since I love the HH game, I will be building a new Thousand Sons army to follow him around. This was going to be be the Prospero Burns box, but I quickly relized that, since the TS are quite an "ornate" legion, I would have to convert and/or use upgrades on most of the models.
So that's what I'll do.

Here is the army list, just so you can see what my plan is.


Legion Praetor.....245p

Archaeotype Pistol
Master-Crafted Thunder Hammer
Melta Bombs
Iron Halo
Artificer Armour
Jetbike w/ Heavy Bolter

This guy will represent Captain Amon of the 9th Fellowship, query to Magnus the Red
This guy is gonna be fun...


Volkite Charger
Force Stave
Melta Bombs
Refractor Field
Artificer Armour
Mastery Lv. 2

This will be Ahriman until he gets rules.


Volkite Serpentia
Force Stave
Artificer Armour
Mastery Lv. 2

This will represent Tolbek, an adept of the Pyrae who later joined Ahrimans Cabal, left, joined Amon and then was killed by Ahriman.


Legion Terminator Squad.....227p

Reaper Autocannon
Volkite Charger
2x Power Fist
2x Chainfist


Legion Tactical Squad.....215p

Additional Chainswords

Sergeant w/
Artificer Armour
Melta Bombs
Power Sword
Combi Weapon

Legion Tactical Squad.....210p

Additional Chainswords

Sergeant w/
Artificer Armour
Melta Bombs
Power Fist
Bolt Pistol

Fast Attack

Legion Seeker Squad

2x Combi-Weapons

Sergeant w/
