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: Wood Elves in May

for a long time we know that Wood Elves are the next Fantasy release due in May (and that they get a big treeman), so they finally deserve their own thread. I will try to keep this first post updated.

Here a first more detailed rumour from faeit212:
Wood Elves are out in May. They get only a two week release - armybook, magic cards and three plastic kits. It is not a total overhaul and their finecast kits - even the cavalry plastic-finecast-kits - stay valid. The only exception is the eternal guard. They are dropped completely. The models can be used as war dancers.

One of the new kits is special because it can be used for several different units. You can build either three hawk riders, which are one hawk and two surfers now, or three giant owl-like monsters called stonefeathers and six waywatchers. On top of that you can build a hero on hawk or on foot.

The second kit is a war dancer combokit. The second unit wears varying animal masks and shields made of pelt on wooden frames. They have animal claws as weapons.

The last kit is tree ancient and meadow hag. The former is a giant-sized tree man with a huge beard made of bark. The latter has a crown of leaves and she has a skirt of roots instead of legs. Her hands grow into a web of thorns.

The rest of the range stays as it is, the finecast kits probably mail order only.

The wood elves have very dynamic poses because almost all their units are skirmishers again and the sculptors didn't have to worry about spacing. Skirmishers work seamlessly with other regiments in 9th edition, so there will be no problem with this play style.
Some Warseer rumours from March:
my korean Local shop manager posted that next fantasy release will be wood elves and they will take 3 boxes that maybe replace some current models, and also there will be one monster kit too. he didn't say anything about plastic charact...

I have some info on this weeks releases they are a bit disappointing. they are just hobby tools and a new hobby tool box set thats it i believe there were a few books also but only got a glance.
I can confirm that, and they are very expensive tools, e.g. a knife for 20?, then side-cutting pliers, a drill, set of files, set of sculpting tools, flash removing tool, and said tool box.

Dakka Forum: The Traveler: Passages of the Terminus Est

Time to begin another army, this time I though I woudl do a project thread here on Dakka for motivation, criticisim, and inspiration.

Nurgle is the theme, and the idea is Typhus' flagship and motley warband he collects in his pilgrimages in worship of Father Nurgle.

Renegade guardsmen, cultitis, and zombies of the slain support the few Deathguard who follow Typhus on his journeys. Eventually Daemons may be called forth as well.

I have collected much of the force and am now in the assembley process, nearly 100 mini's together with about 20 more deathguard, 15 zombies, and 20 more renegades to go. very little greenstuff work has been done at this point. I'm not great at sculpting, but I am going to experment with it on this army.

Below are some shots of the project in its current state. Painting will begin shortly, much of this will be done with my trusty Badger airbrush.

Enjoy the photos, C&C welcomed! More will be forthcoming as I hit milestones.

Dakka Forum: What are your favourite Space Marine Characters - Squads - Vehicles and Why

Posted: 2014-04-16 00:59:07

Hi everyone,

ok I was just interested what your opinions were on best pieces and why, it doesn't have to be one thing it could be a number of things inc characters, squads and vehicles.

Im still opening up to game specifics and for the most time I was just collecting from a hobby point of view. Im trying to understand strengths and weaknesses and pretty much everything in between to get a better understanding with what a chapters power consists of.

So far my Blood Angels are pretty stock in terms of what I have. I was thinking moving more into the Death Company set I don't know maybe because I keep hearing their badass

Ok so anyways.....please fire your opinions and why - I know the title says space marines but it can be anything from any race really.

Anticipate hearing all your thoughts
