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 Maelstrom's Edge, 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.

Sponsor Press Release:
Puzzles and Props Kickstarter

Posted: 2021-09-17 07:00:00

Props & Beyond are bringing you amazing 3D Printable puzzles and props to level up your
role play games!

Hook the players at your RPG table with amazingly immersive puzzles and props. Wow
your gaming group, and capture their attention, when you pull out the actual puzzles they
have to solve, or present them with the loot they just plundered!

We’re all fans of providing physical hooks for our players, be it half-burnt letters, invisible
ink maps or mysterious blueprints. But now we have access to 3D printers there’s a whole
new world of options to play around with.

We can’t wait for you to be able to see the joy, the concentration, the mild frustration as
they work to decipher, unlock, or break fantastical puzzles without the chance of
misinterpreting something you have described.

And what could be a more satisfying payoff for your players after working through a difficult
dungeon and defeating the final boss then to be presented with the epic magical loot they
just plundered?

What better reminder of the magical ring your party’s wizard can use than for them to wear
it at the table? Got a player with a Figurine of Wondrous Power? With a model on the
table, they won’t forget to use it when the combat starts and the dice are rolling!

Puzzles and Props was funded in 30 seconds, with all 100+ STLs Stretch Goals unlocked
already and new Bonus Goals added to the All-In Pledge!

Please visit our campaign page on Kickstarter today!

Dakka Forum: Worst reason you ever started a new army?

Hey there Dakka, i have a fun discussion topic. What is the worst reason you used to justify starting a new army? For me, it was boredom waiting for an army update. I started picking up 1k Sons despite having a massive back log of Death Guard, CSM, Eldar, a warhound titan, and an AoS army to build/paint. What's yours?

Dakka Forum: Silly post: Worst two picks for December codex reveal

Posted: 2021-09-20 11:59:07
Forum post by leerm02, 36 responses at time of this post.

Greetings folks,

So we know that in December there will be two new codexes, one xenos and one imperial... what do you think would be the WORST two reveals they could be? Let's not go overboard (no "My Little Pony" predictions!) but give us what you think would be the two worst reveals within reason.

Also, just gonna nip this one in the bud: no saying "Space Marine Codex Re-Release". I know, I know, it totally does fit the theme of this post, but it would be too easy to derail.

Let's have those predictions!

Dakka Daily Poll: When doing model fine details and symbols do you prefer to...

Posted: 2021-09-20 09:59:07
When doing model fine details and symbols do you prefer to...
Use standard decals
Create your own custom decals
Use detail on the original model itself
Deliberately buy upgraded parts for models with Symbols and detail on, to save using decals.
Model your own GS fine detail
Paint on fine details free hand
Don't bother with detail, just a basic paint job
I Don't Paint

Dakka Forum: Absolute noob questions

Posted: 2021-09-20 05:59:07
Forum post by IllogicalHelicopter, 36 responses at time of this post.

Hey, I'm new, both to the hobby and the forum!

I have two noob question for the very start and I hope this is a right place to ask them. I got a nice box of Nobz, which look fun, but here's my conundrum: do I need to decide now what kind of weapons I have to give them, even if I know nothing about building an army and what's good to use? Is it possible to later on just say "I glued them with Choppas but imagine they have Killsaws"?

I got two sets of bases: 25 mm and 32 mm. Which one should I use for my Nobz (and for the little ammo guy)? Does it matter?

I'm sure I'll have more noob questions later :)
