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.

Which factions don?t have access to Psykers, and don?t have the ability to deny enemy Psykers? How do players of those armies deal with this?

I think Perturabo could have been the one that could have remained loyal. If he could get passed his self pitying and his demands to be celebrated he could have stayed loyal.

Dakka Forum: The Conformance of Scrotox XIII *Escalation Campaign Battles* [Chapter 2 Parts 1&2 now avail...

Hello and welcome to the battle reports section for our campaign here: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/631406.page

As we complete games throughout the year battle reports, grainy photos and super-high quality background fiction will appear.

Chapter 1 part 1 (Astra Miltarius Guard V Farsight Enclaves 750pts) can actually be found here also, but perhaps a kind soul will try and work out how to move it?: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/60/631406.page

Here's our opening background:

The recently warp-isolated imperial human world of Scrotox XIII is currently being 'liberated' by the Tau and preyed upon by the Dark Eldar slavers simultaneously at the same time. Tau and Dark Eldar clash as a result, allowing a loyalist human element to contact the wider Imperium, who dispatch a conveniently close Ultramar PDF regiment to quell the rebellion/Tau presence, only to find that the Emperor's finest are already in orbit and understandably rather miffed about all this messing about with factions and are attempting to install their own power-armoured leadership.
The planet is known only for its large, chicken-like life forms, the skins of which are used to make and export handbags across the galaxy. A vital source of fashion without which Mankind may well be destined for darkness.
Its Imperial designation is Scrotox XIII or B'aulbag if you speak fish.

Methuselah Soulfelcher lanquished.

It had been days since the last influx of slaves, fine wines and cured Scrotmeats had appeared from Scrotox VIII. He felt restless, or was it something else? Moreso, boredom.

For a number of years the planet had been under his dark stranglereign, there were problems daily but recently he cared not for them. At first it was the resistance of the local inhabitants, Scrot farmers mostly, to his mind, ...

Hi All.

I have been recently working on a project for the new Necromunda - Underhive tabletop game to add a little more depth to the already deep darkness of the hive cities of Necromunda....

I have started this thread just to see if there is any interest in this project, images will be uploaded soon...
