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.

I really like the Gork/Morkanaut model but I don't know which one to choose and how to run that particular model.

Thanks in advance,

Dakka Forum: Dakka (unofficial) Monthly Painting Challenge Round 8: October 2015: Trick or Treat?

Posted: 2015-10-08 13:59:07
Forum post by Paradigm, 130 responses at time of this post.

I'm back! Mwahahahaha! Huge thanks to Buttery Commissar for taking on hosting duties for last month's challenge!

For those who have somehow missed the 7 excellent challenges run so far (where have you been? Deep Space? :D), this is a monthly competition open to all painters, whether you've won a Golden Demon or simply painted a Demon gold! At the end of each month, the entries are collected into a final showcase, in which the whole of Dakka can vote for their favourite entries, not just the best painted but also the coolest, most ambitious, funniest or simply the one you like the most! There is an ongoing League that these results contribute towards, which will run for 12 months before starting over in March next year.

The theme for this month's challenge is: Trick Or Treat?

This theme can be interpreted however you like, but here are some examples:
- Any miniature that has some kind of dual nature, such as an Ork disguised as a Space Marine or a guardsmen holding a live grenade behind his back.
- Any miniature that is scary, sneaky or otherwise threatening, the kind you'd give the Treat to rather than risk their (probably fatal) Trick. This could be anything from a Tyranid Genestealer to a vicious Skaven Assassin
- Any miniature that is devious, tricky or cunning, the kind that is likely to trick you whether you hand over the treat or not! Such creatures might include a Malifaux Gremlin, an Eldar Harlequin or a Night Goblin, among others.
- In the spirit of Halloween (spirit, geddit?), any miniature that is at all ghostly, ethereal or unearthly, from a lowly Zombie to a mighty Demon.

How To Enter
- You may enter up to 5 MODELS as a SINGLE ENTRY, and are permitted one entry per member per month. If you enter multiple models, they should ideally be related in some way, such as part of the same squad, unit or scene if you are doing a dioram...

Dakka Forum: Favorite Warmachine and Hordes models.

Hey guys, had a fun little thread idea I have been throwing around. What is your favorite model from Warmachine and Hordes, based off of pure looks and fluff, not how it plays or it's special rules. And, why is it your favorite.

My favorite model from MK I, and still is my favorite is the original pewter Battlebox Kommander Sorscha. The first time I saw her I knew she was going to be fun to paint, and I love how much character that model has.
