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: The Female-Space Marine question?

Posted: 2016-05-31 22:59:07
Forum post by Brother-Redemptor, 195 responses at time of this post.

Recently I have seen quite a few posts both here and on other boards regarding the infamous topic of female-space marines and why they should or shouldn?t exist. Personally I believe they should remain as they are, not because I?m some kind of backwards thinking misogynistic jerk but because it makes sense within the setting and the established lore. Let me just start out by saying that I fully support the idea that there should be a more even gender divide in the model range as it?s a bit of a sausage fest at the moment. The WH40K universe seems to get a bit of a bad rap when it comes to gender equality by people outside of the 40k community who tend to have a very simplified view of the setting and at first glance all seem to jump to the conclusion that there is not enough female representation and that it is an all-boys club where non males are not wanted. I would love to see more people join the hobby regardless of their gender and from what I have seen the community as a whole is a very warm and welcoming one (for the most part).

When it comes to the armies available to play you have the following:

Orks- gender neutral- as they are sentient killer fungus.

Necrons- gender neutral- as they are ancient killer robots.

Chaos Daemons- gender neutral- as they are daemons and there for their physical forms don?t actually exist.

Tyranids- gender neutral- they are birthed within the Hive ships so have no need for gender.

Eldar- mixed gender- Eldar armies are always of mixed gender as they see no distinction between the capabilities of males and females.

Astra Militarum- mixed gender- The Imperium doesn?t care what the hell you are as long as you are human and can fire a gun then you have a place within the meat grinder that is the armies of the Imperium.

Inquisition- mixed gender- Same as the Astra Militarum, as long as you are human and have a b...
