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 do people feel about sexually explicit models?

Posted: 2014-09-21 16:59:07
Forum post by calamarialldayerrday, 208 responses at time of this post.

Recently, on a Facebook group dedicated to showing off GW models, a member posted some pictures of sexually explicit conversions he had made. One of them was a Land Raider with stripper cages instead of side sponsons. I commented that this was offensive, but the general consensus amongst the commenters was that it wasn't. How do you feel about this? Would you feel comfortable walking into a hobby shop while someone showed off the blood covered strippers they had made?

The conversation went as follows...

Me: The technical skills are great, but then he has to add naked women to it. What's the point? This is why people think tabletop gamers are creepy basement dwellers. They go into shops and see stuff like this.

Him: Because I like it. I play a Debauchery themed army. Debauchery is a death metal band. Also I find it funny that you have no problem with blood, skulls, and gore, but you find nudity to be "creepy." Some double standards there?

Me: Sorry, I should have said sexist. The rest is quite obviously tongue in cheek, it's a silly game and a silly universe. But you are using women (in enslaved positions) as an accessory to this. Women are far too often shown as accessories in fiction, art, and real life, and you are encouraging this. However, while I don't have a problem with the tongue in cheek violence, your sexualisation of the blood and gore is just downright creepy.

Him: No, not at all. Strippers are not enslaved. Do they look enslaved to you?Warhammer hast tons of half naked guys covered in blood holding a weapon, but if I got a female in the same position it is sexist?
No sorry, it is your argument that is sexist.

Other: A lady in summer-ish beachwear and a girl with naked boobies and a chainsaw do not scream slavery to me to be honest..., I think you reaction to this particular model is a bit overreacted. I agree that the depiction of wom...
