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: [Necromunda] Multi-Gangs, Collecting the Original Models

Posted: 2014-10-23 19:59:07
Forum post by Zoring, 54 responses at time of this post.

Hello chaps, time for a change of pace of me, and to launch into another project! I want to eventually collect and paint all of the original models (except the Goliaths because those models are tremendously awful)

First of all to anyone reading this I am looking for the following gangs to buy from you anyone with them, if anyone has the complete or even partial collections I am chasing:
Cawdor, Van Saar, Delaque.

I have always loved the Necromunda figures, it was the height of Necromunda when I got into the hobby in 1996 and so my early days of White Dwarf where filled with these models and i've always had a massive soft spot for them, and my early days of gaming was with Necromunda and Gorkamorka as well as 2nd Ed 40k, although I never did at the time own any Necromunda figures!

I have the Escher gang all complete and finished, so I will trickle them out one at a time as I go to keep you interested whilst I paint through the other ones, I will also be painting my WFB Empire/DOW at the same time so I will be going slowly!

Escher Ganger with Autogun and Pistol, Escher Ganger with Lasgun http://imageshack.us/a/img547/5013/nc1.png
These are all painted up Punk Rockers/Hair Band girls from the 80's bright colours and big hair so what else could they be!

Orlock Juve and Ratskin Ganger http://imageshack.us/a/img534/1881/nc2u.png
These wip figures show my new thing, Grey Undercoat, for me the perfect balance between providing a bit of shading and still keeping the colours vibrant, so we will see how they go! I am not sure on what to do with the Orlocks just yet, although their obvious Biker looks is making me lean towards black leather jackets and blue jeans, we will see how it goes. With the ratskins I am thinking up earthy tones for clothing, with Albino ratskin cloaks and some Native American inspired facial warpaint, If I can give an impression of these guys I will be very pleased. http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/4965/dsc08676e.jp

i hope moderators will find ok if I open this new thread for AoW news to replace the other one: some of you might know that i very often visit aow hq to play warthrone and arena, and know quite well the team, so i can even pass word to them of any suggestion (like i did with the ltd. bsb). so i'd love to mantain this thread updated with news & rumors from aow. I start a new one so it is possible for me to be updating the thread title with every news and rumor update and so

now to the news! :thumbsup:

July new releases are two new characters for cirlea from tow of the new freelance aow sculptors. as I said not long ago, aow is expanding greatly their freelance artists collaborators. very soon we'll see new miniatures from many other sculptors apart from felix

The Tercios of Lusia are feared by all the enemies of Cirlea, because of the great skill of the musketeers that form within these so emblematic regiments of the Cirlean army. A major General of Lusia is the ideal personality to lead your regiments of Tercios of Lusia in battle. http://www.avatars-of-war.com/esp/web/images/minis/aow70/aow70_blister.jpg

Broadswords regiments are the elite infantry of the armies of Arguntia, and pride of this kingdom located east of Cirlea.
Each of these soldiers is a veteran and noble warrior and a master of combat with the deadly Arguntian broadsword. http://www.avatars-of-war.com/esp/web/images/minis/aow69/aow69_blister.jpg
