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.

There is a terrible darkness descending upon the galaxy, and we shall not see it ended in our lifetimes.

The smell of a newly opened box from Games Workshop - staring in awe at the rows of miniatures still on sprues - clippers and polystyrene cement to hand. Breath it in friends, it is the start of a new project.

Greetings one and all, this log will track my progress through Deathwatch Overkill, the birth of a Genestealer Cult and my first foray back into the world of Warhammer 40,000.

Since returning to the hobby in fall 2014, I have focused solely on Age of Sigmar and Necromunda (both blogs linked below), but my introduction to the hobby when I was 10 years old started with a Warhammer 40,000 Second Edition Boxset and I have been itching to return.

- Age of Sigmar Blog
- Necromunda Blog

Deathwatch Overkill gives me the perfect way back in. It is a game in-of-itself (which I fully intend to play), with a faction I can use for both 40K and also Necromunda too.

Not to mention it has some of the best miniatures Games Workshop have ever released!

So sit back and enjoy the ride. A slow ride, mind. I am hoping to finish this box in 6 months time, the deadline being August 31st 2016. This blog will differ from my others in that I will be posting up a lot more WIPs rather than just finished models. So let's kick this off with my first WIP!

4th Generation Hybrids WIP http://i.imgur.com/HxzF6Od.jpg

You get two sets of 4 poses with the 4th Generation Hybrids. I wanted to add a bit more variety to the models, so firstly I swapped the heads around for the second set. I also cut off the connecter beneath the neck to allow free ...
