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: Mantic Dungeon Saga Kickstarter - Launches August 4th, 12:30pm GMT

Mantic Games is about to launch a Kickstarter for Dungeon Sagas: Dwarf Kings Quest.

This will be a tabletop dungeon crawler game, conceptually similar to Heroquest or Warhammer Quest, but building on the gameplay mechanics established in the Dwarf King's Hold series of board games.

Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King?s Quest is the dungeon adventure board game for 2-5 players. The heroes must battle their way through 6 exciting scenarios, growing in strength and acquiring magical items, before eventually facing off against the Necromancer in a final exciting showdown between good and evil.
Will you fight back against the hordes of darkness, or will you let evil prevail?
The basic game will centre around 4 heroes entering an undead-infested dungeon, playing through a narrative series of linked scenarios, fighting skeletons and zombies and eventually facing tougher monsters such as Zombie Trolls and the Undead Dwarf King and his bodyguards.

- Core game will include 4 heroes and a horde of Undead to fight, along with the rules, scenario book and game tiles.
- In addition to this, the game will have a false bottom with a trapdoor which opens up to reveal an advanced rulebook and other interesting things that expand the game beyond the basic scenarios, such as rules for every Undead model in the Kings of War model range, generating dungeons and levelling up characters, using their gold to buy new items etc.
- Advanced rules will also include rules for new heroes, and rules for different classes that each race type can pick.
- There will be lots of different heroes, huge variety ranging from Halfling Thief to Warrior Nun to Lizardman Shapeshifter.

Dakka Forum: Grey Knights are next !

From Lords of War Gaming:
Now that Wolves have hit, The next 40k army will be Grey Knights. This release will be codex and data cards only. There will be zero kits for this release.
Should be soon. BA and DE could be down the road, but my source says GK. He's been right so many times. https://www.facebook.com/Lordsofwargaming?hc_location=timeline

No new models sounds weird for a codex release this important. But so far everything he predicted was right on.

Though they could release new different bundles without having actual new models. Or they could do a new Stormclaw like boxset with the rumored new daemons/csm units as the opposing faction.

Dakka Forum: My local GW Manager has quit

Posted: 2014-07-30 09:59:07
Forum post by crazyfoxdemon, 120 responses at time of this post.

Earlier today, the manager for my local GW resigned. He did this after having a visit from his boss to the store. Needless to say that said boss didn't like how he ran things even though his numbers were amazing. This manager took a dying store with barely a community and made it great. When I first started going there, there were barely any players, and he took that and made it packed consistently. He organized countless tournaments and paint contests. He basically revitalized the community. And from what he's said, his sales numbers were always great, consistently beating his quotas.

One of the things the boss had a problem with was a 'Game Room' that the manager had previously gotten the OK on. He took a back room of the store that wasn't needed and converted into a playing area with tables and everything. He then spent his own money and time to get it painted and looking great. With such great works of art like: http://i463.photobucket.com/albums/qq354/crazyfoxdemon/10501719_10204405812444191_3170851430327898952_n_zps702408af.jpg http://i463.photobucket.com/albums/qq354/crazyfoxdemon/10500292_10204415981978423_2291381033312434557_n_zpsf5067ad1.jpg http://i463.photobucket.com/albums/qq354/crazyfoxdemon/10557203_10204412754217731_4675642391148560344_n_zps65f9f595.jpg

That's not to mention all of his own money he's put into the store getting terrain and such for people to play with. This is a massive blow to my local gaming community as he was a beloved member and leader of it. He will be missed and whoever comes after him better have a PhD in PR after this mess.
