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: How did the Mierce/Wayland/Simple debacle end?

Posted: 2014-10-01 14:59:07
Forum post by odinsgrandson, 70 responses at time of this post.

I've been meaning to find out what happened at the end of this story for a long time now.

Maelstrom miniatures was failing, and they were in a lot of debt (to Simple Games). They were paying token amounts to Simple Miniatures (although Simple claims that their credit was often declined, and by the end, it was always declined). The owner of Simple was able to keep his company afloat, but lost his savings, and couldn't invest the money in his own business.

The guys at Wayland noticed that Maelstrom was investing heavily into a new company (Mierce) while they weren't paying their debts (Simple was the largest chunk of debt but not the only one). They figured that Maelstrom was planning on turning belly up on their debts, and do a quick shell game to move everything profitable to Mierce (while keeping all of the debt with Maelstrom).

The owner of Mierce is the same as the owner of Maelstrom.

Wayland made a deal with Simple Miniatures to buy the outstanding debt from Maelstrom, then they called Maelstrom on it. This puts Maelstrom out of business. They can't pay a debt that they legally owe, it makes sense. But rather than handing their assets over to Wayland (in lieu of debt) they 'sold' their assets to Mierce.

Last I heard, Wayland was going to follow up on this, and it sounded like legal action was getting started. But that's the last I heard of it.

So- has anyone heard anything else about how this went down.
