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: Cyclopia Cabal: Cheesing the Cabal

The Cyclopia Cabal is the from the new supplement "Black Legion" A few weeks ago I saw Tsilber wreck a GT, edging first over top players like Nick Nanavanti, Kurt Clauss, Jhason Hardy and Alexander Fennell. This article describes how the use the Cabal to get the most use out of it.

Have you tried the Cabal? Have you seen it in action?
What have you found to be really useful or effective?
Could this be used to make CSM competitive in today's meta?

Dakka Forum: EBAY User alert for you Dakkanauts

First off, From MOD Manchu.

Yeah you can post a thread on that if you like, just keep it "professional." I don't know that we have specific section for it so maybe Dakka Discussions?

I recently sold an 8th edition warhammer fantasy rulebook Brand new on EBAY. The User ID asqlep paid immediately and the book was sent out in NEW condition still in shrink wrap. After a few days of having the book ASQLEP informed EBAY that he wanted to return the item because it wasn't in Brand new condition and he won his appeal because I was offline for about a week or two while in the process of moving. So EBAY had him ship the item back and gave him a full refund for the item.

When the rulebook got back to me the shrink wrap had been completely torn off one end of the book, the book had been removed from the shrink wrap at some point (spine was bent) and you can clearly see he opened the book up. My guess is that he received the book, opened it, photo copied it and then shipped it back.

So as a heads up, watch out for this guy, he is not an honest buyer.

Dakka Forum: Being stingy or cheap in the hobby.

Posted: 2016-05-30 10:59:07
Forum post by cuda1179, 83 responses at time of this post.

A friend recently called me out on being a cheapskate. While I honestly can't say that anyone in the hobby is "cheap" I have to say I somewhat agreed with him in his opinion. The reason he called me this? While I generally like GW paints, I hate paying $5 for half an ounce of paint. So I go to Walmart, buy the same shade of paint in their craft isle (88 cents for 2 ounces) and then I mix it in with the GW paint. Basically the mixture is about 85 to 90 percent GW paint, I just cut the cost a bit by adding generic craft paint with no noticeable difference in coverage.

Does anyone else have any cost cutting techniques they use to get the most of their money?
