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.

OK so I am trying again to run a PM Blog in the hopes of having some good old wholesome fun with the community while keeping my ADHD focused on getting my beloved DE revamped. I started playing DE WAY back in 3rd with the starter and after a decade of hoping for an update gave them up. Two more years later would see them finally redone yet it would take a few more years to get me to update my fugly army. (it's bitter sweet when a new line is in fact so awesome it makes you want to burn what you have despite the huge investment in time and money already committed :D)

I worked on finishing some other projects (yea right like they will ever end) and wouldn't you know it, just as I am getting the ball moving a NEW release starts dropping! :facepalm: Took to long, we did :D

So anywho, I have quite a few vehicles already underway, 12 venoms and 5 raiders (two of which are magnetized to be ravagers). All my vehicles are custom because I am an idiot like that and have to build unique crap so as to not show up to a tournament with a clone army :D

heres just a couple quick snaps of the fleet:


Here is my real pleasure though, my creations of terror!!!

Dakka Forum: Another casualty of GW

The area I just moved to has a single gaming store within 30 miles of me and they are currently no longer carrying GW products because of the costs associated with the product. I understand the concept that GW wants to sell everyone from their webstore to make as much profit as possible. But did GW forget that in order to play the game we have to have stores to go to that carry all the amazing terrain and boards and is a gathering place for other players? At the current rate we won't be able to play fairly soon. So in conclusion.....RAGE!

Dakka Forum: Magnetic Levitation

I have a great idea that I want to put to action, but I don't know how to do it...

I just recently got into Warhammer 40k, and I already love it to death; most of all, I like the time and effort that goes into making the miniatures into veritable works of art.

What I wanted to do was make one of my Eldar Falcon Gravtanks levitate without the aid of a flying base. How would I accomplish this, if it's at all possible? This piece would strictly be for display, so the size and material requirements of the base aren't incredibly limiting factors.

My ideas so far would be to have a large, disc-shaped neodymium magnet attached to a motor so it spins very fast and an equivalent magnet snuggly secured inside the bottom of the gravtank. Would this fail miserably?
