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 Forum: In the works "The Bone Legion"

Hey dakka,

I'm new to this fantastic hobbie and I've always wanted to get into it as a teen but never had the money or patience to actually make it happen. I've allways enjoyed building and painting models when I was younger, but once they were built they just sat on my shelve collecting dust. This is the amazing part of warhammer that intrigues me so much. Not only do I get the gratitude of building and patining a model but I can now enjoy playing them on a battle field while showing them off to other people.

Any ways the whole reason I'm stArting this thread is to share my experience as a new warhammer 40k player to the dakka world. My goal is to learn and grow as a warhammer painter/builder with the dakka community and hopefully throught this thread someone else new starting out can learn something as well. My plan is to post weekly/monthly pictures and/or posts on this thread showing my progress as a new warhammer painter. I Will be posting updates on my progress including painting/building the miniatures, material, painting techniques, problems I encounter ect..ect..

As this being the first post I just wanted to explain a little bit about the tread and give the dakka community a little taste of what is currently in the works.

I currently have minitures on back order and I will be receiving them within the next week. The army I have on back order consists of a box of berzerkers, box of CSM, a rhino, and a kharn the betrayer. This will be my start up 500 point army that I will be working on within the next few months. This is an expensive hobbie but I think with a little bit of research and hunting you can save a good amount of money.

When I decided to get into the hobbie I gave myself a budget of $200-$250 to get a 500 point army and the necessary tools to get building. I found a guy throught kijiji who was abl...
