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: New hCaptcha feature on Warhammer community?

Posted: 2020-07-11 10:59:07
Forum post by McMagnus Mindbullets, 42 responses at time of this post.

As I'm sure we all do here, I regularly check Warhammer community for articles and updates about things. Today I got hit with an hCaptcha 'prove you aren't a robot' type thing which kind of surprised me. I haven't seen any other threads talking about this, how many other people have noticed it? They also acknowledged it in their 'necrons through the ages' article today:

We all know that Necrons have been around for millions of years, but did you know just how long the Necron Warrior has been around as a model for? Today, we?re taking a look back at its distant origins and how they have changed over the decades. If you?re a bit rusty, this is the perfect place to start and you don?t even have to pass a CAPTCHA to prove you?re not a Necron.

It's good to see gw taking steps to protect user privacy and security by having this in place, though choosing which is a bus or a train every time I want to check the site might get annoying :D

Dakka Forum: Thousand Sons Help

Forum post by chimeara, 37 responses at time of this post.

I'm looking for advice on expanding my TSons. In 8th I used them purely for soup in the old Supreme Command detachment. I have Arhiman, Daemon Prince, Sorcerer and Magnus. What should I be adding to expand into a battalion or some other usable detachment for 9th? I've got some vehicles that I've yet to paint as I wasn't sure what army I wanted to make them. This includes 2x Hell Blades, Hellforged predator or Scorpius (magnitized). Would these be any good in this army for the upcoming edition? I realize the army rules and points aren't out yet. So I'm purely looking at 9th core rules at this point and the current codex.
