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.

Sponsor Press Release:
Rise of the Kage Kickstarter Campaign

Posted: 2014-07-18 01:45:06

GCT Studios are delighted to announce our first ever board game, Rise of the Kage.

In Rise of the Kage, 2-4 players can choose to play as the ninja; deadly warriors tasked with a variety of missions all ultimately focused upon taking down the Takashi clan, the Jwar Isles' ruling family.

Or you can choose the brave guards of the Prefecture of Ryu. The ninjas play cooperatively discovering weapons from shuriken to poisoned rice, dispatching guards or skulking in the shadows as they seek to complete their goals.

The guard boss employs all their resources to bring this deadly foe to a halt. Rise of the Kage offers a great blend of sneaky skills and gobsmacking kills.

Find more details here, three from those that comment on this Dakka Dakka thread will be chosen to have their Katsumi model upgraded to metal during the Kickstarter!

Dakka Forum: Rumors of plastic sisters

Posted: 2014-07-22 19:59:07
Forum post by Hybrid Son Of Oxayotl, 71 responses at time of this post.

Not that I believe in it, but I found that through a French forum: http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/showthread.php?47284-Forgeworld-Warhammer-40-000-Open-Day-2014&p=438200&viewfull=1#post438200

I love how Sisters are (supposedly) not part of the ?main factions? (anymore?). That means no big update a-la Dark Eldar, if we are to believe this rumor. Only maybe a few tidbits in between releases for those ?main factions?.

Dakka Forum: Limited Edition - Impulse Purchase - I don't get it!

Posted: 2014-07-22 15:59:07
Forum post by wuestenfux, 112 responses at time of this post.

The new Stormclaw box in 40k is limited edition as were other products of GW in the past.

What's the whole thing with impuls buys? Does it make sense in the miniature market? I don't get it.
