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 is Making a Game - Maelstrom's Edge - Live on Kickstarter Now!

Forum post by legoburner, 107 responses at time of this post.

We are live on Kickstarter now - http://www.maelstromsedge.com/ks
Please back us and help us launch this amazing game and universe!

It is with great pleasure that I can at long last announce that Dakka has been working on a game - Maelstrom's Edge.

Yakface, myself and a team of 6 others have been working on this project for over 3 years. We have injection moulded plastic models finished and ready to show, with tournament quality rules written by Jon Regul (yakface). It is a squad-based skirmish game (about 20-30 models per side), and every model is multi-part and multi-pose, so there is massive potential for easy conversions and part swaps.

Maelstrom's Edge is a far future science fiction setting where a golden age of exploration and innovation has been ripped apart and humanity is on the very edge of annihilation. The Maelstrom, a gigantic apocalyptic explosion of dark energy, is rapidly expanding out from the heart of the galaxy, destroying everything it touches. As worlds and stars are obliterated from existence, those who have the means flee towards deep space, while those left behind fight for the chance to escape.

Dakka Forum: Livin' on the MEdge - or: 101 things to do with the MEdge terrain sprue...

So, I was lucky enough to be sent a bunch of early sprues of the Maelstrom's Edge terrain to play with.

For those who haven't seen it, the sprue looks like this:

Some of my efforts have been shown in the Kickstarter updates, but I thought it might be fun to show what I've been working on, in the hope it might inspire others along the way.

The fun thing about this kit is that you can add parts to just about anything. My very first experiment was a small bunker entrance, made from foamcore and card, which wound up looking like this :

For a less foamcorial option, I found some storage trays at the local hardware store...

Which turn into this :

Painting about half done...

I've always wanted to create an "artistic" army... to really pour myself into a work. When I was deciding what army to play, I considered a few things... first, I wanted to play something drastically different to my Eldar... second, I wanted something I could get really creative with. While hanging out at my new FLGS, I was checking out various armies when inspiration struck... FOR THE HORDE! I've been painting and heavily modifying the Trollbloods army to be inspired by the Horde faction from Warcraft.

I've got tons of tutorials and works in progress on my website, http://www.WargamingTradecraft.com, but I wanted to share some of the completed photos here.

Of course, I need some ACTUAL warlocks to control the demons and offer buffs..
