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.

So I keep seeing the request for plastic SoB and I wanted to see how many people would actually buy them.

Dakka Forum: YouWaShock's Models (formerly Stormcast Adeptus Custodes) 05/23 Knight Models

Like many others, the Stormcast Liberator models looked more to me like they would be right at home in the 40K universe instead of WHFB. And since I already had a small pile of bits waiting to be turned into an Adeptus Custodes model (SG torso/HE legs variety), I took the opportunity to grab a five-pack of these guys to use as fodder for conversions, the first of which was to be the Custodes. Hope the pics work ok. I tend to take WiP shots with a phone in less-than-stellar lighting.

I hope to post more pics as I work on other Inq28/Inquisimunda, Necromunda, Gorkamorka, and Mordheim themed models, plus anything else I happen to be working on. Maybe some fluff for some of them.

I would also like to take a moment to thank all of you. All of you who post your work and delve into the real potential this game and these models have. A special thanks to all the =][=/Inq28 theme modelers and painters, who have served as an inspiration to me as I have lurked these forums for the past few years. PDH, DexterKong, Bruticus, migsula, weirdingway, KrautScientist, any others I am forgetting at the moment, all you guys do work to aspire to.

Thanks for looking.

From what I can see the indexes are:
Imperium 1- space marines, blood angels, dark angels, space wolves, grey knights, deathwatch, legion of the damned
Imperium 2- Astra Militarum, Ad mech, Imperial knights, imperial agents, talons of the Emperor
Chaos- heretic astarties, chaos daemons, questor traitoris (I think)
Xenos 1- craftworlds, new dark eldar name, eldar with the Y name, harlequins, necrons
Xenos 2-orks, t'au, tyranids, gene cults

I'm getting all five.
