More About Dakka


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 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: How quickly will GW introduce a unit that ignores/invalidates new rules?

Posted: 2020-06-25 15:59:07
Forum post by Sim-Life, 42 responses at time of this post.

So every change we get for 9th is anyone else thinking "how quickly will GW introduce a unit that ignores/invalidates that?"

Like limited CP for everyone is great, till an army gets undercosted characters that add CP to their pool. Or weapons that ignore Dense cover or reroll Combat Attrition dice etc.

Am I alone? And before anyone says anything anyone familiar with my posting history knows I verge on the positive side when discussing 40k but I also know GW gonna GW.

Dakka Forum: We're Living on the Edge - Strategic Reserves (go to the other thread for morale)

Howmuch CP do you think you'll be spending on reserves?Looks like you can pump 10 CP into reserving your entire army if you wish.

The bullets make me think Fallback is the usual business.Does this change the melee dynamic for anyone?

Also...Aircraft don't have to come from the edge - they just pop in like deepstrike.

Flip-top paint pots

I don't paint/have no opinion

Dakka Forum: POLL: What Warhammer 40k content do you watch on youtube?

Posted: 2020-06-25 05:59:07
Forum post by Carl4t7, 38 responses at time of this post.


Starting a youtube channel that will have tactica, rumours, new release reviews etc.

Wanted to get a feel for what type of videos people go on youtube to locate.

I'd really appreciate your feedback. We are looking at doing 2/3 videos a week at present until we have a better understanding of what people want.

If you could drop us a sub that would be amazing to kick us off.

Our channel is at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHhjutyqA1BU0QSpZUVO38g
