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: 30k Alpha Legion Army - The WAAAGH Studios

Ever since reading Legion I've wanted to build an Alpha Legion army and now with Betrayal at Calth being released it's time to finally get it done.

Here are a few shots of some of the models I've built from BAC along with a few extra bits:

and here's the first test model for the colour scheme:

Most of my time is taken up with commission and general business work so I rarely get a chance to work on my own miniatures but this is an army I've wanted to do for a long time so I'm going to try and squeeze in as much time on them as possible.

Let me know what you think.

Dakka Forum: AoS Slaanesh Chaos Blog - Sigvald Reborn

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

Sigvald the Magnificent is my favorite character from GW, so now that he's dead and his model is a generic Slaanesh lord, I feel like I can use the character in my own direction so I am expanding my army to fit the following theme:

During the capture of Slaanesh, exhausted, it made one final attempt to secure it's future by reincarnating it's greatest champion...

Sigvald The Magnificent is reborn in the Mortal Realms, several years aged, and bearing the scars from the time of his death. He quickly recruits followers, raises an army, and begins his search for Slaanesh so that the god may restore his former beauty and power.
Sigvald vows to destroy the pretenders who are attempting to replace the god of excess as one of the great 4 chaos gods (Luxscious/Ur-Slaanesh, we commin for you).

Old Sigvald: http://i.imgur.com/Y3Jx0h0.jpg

AoS Sigvald 'Reborn':
The Deathbringer model was perfect for the conversion because he has a scar on his face which mirrors the damage suffered at the hands of krell in the end times, and once I paint his hair and beard blonde, and the armor plates a beat-up gold, it will work. I also like that he is bigger than the old Sigvald.

Current army:

The old Sigvald model looks too small for the new AoS scale characters.

I bought the Slaves to Darkness box, so up next up is to get a bunch of warriors. I was thinking of making a unit of chosen body guard holding mirrors for Sigvald, but since he is "ugly" now, I dont know if it will work. In his novel he didnt want people looking at him when he was injured.

Sigvald hates deathrattle units (thanks Krell), Trolls, and anything ugly.

Remember kids, Handsome fighters never lose battles. http://i.imgur.com/795peTN.jpg

YES, I want/would buy MKVIII Errant Armour from FW
NO, the plastic torso is more than enough if I want MKVIII
Abstain, because I don't play 40K or SM
