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.

Dakka Daily Poll: How much is a good price for a fully plastic 6x4 battlefield (in USD)?

Posted: 2020-08-09 09:59:07
How much is a good price for a fully plastic 6x4 battlefield (in USD)?
N/A - I dont play games that need a battlefield
$0-1 - I'll only ever build my own
$1-$40 - Super cheap or not interested
$41-$80 - Around the level of cost of materials for building my own
$81-$100 - Up to $100 seems reasonable
$101-$130 - Slightly more premium priced due to the time savings
$131-$150 - Up to $150 for the ready to go quality
$151-$175 - Still much easier than doing it myself
$176-$200 - The portability justifies the price
$201+ - I've got no upper spending limit for something that serves the purpose perfectly.

Dakka Forum: The Feudal Guard of Mud

Posted: 2020-08-09 07:59:07

I have been posting regularly about the Imperial Mushroom Hunters since last autumn; Now the time has come for their notorious allies, the Feudal Guard of Mud.

Far off in the Segmentum Obscurus, there is a planet called Mud. It is a feudal world, or at least it used to be. Following a catastrophic event some two thousand years ago, the inhabitants of Mud lost access to advanced technology, and developed a highly decentralised, agrarian society. The Imperial government did not see fit to re-introduce lost technology, since the underdeveloped planet was politically stable and economically productive. Over the years, the inhabitants of Mud discovered metal working and various construction methods, but society remained strictly decentralised. There were tens of thousands of communities, all but identical, where farmers (peasants) laboured for local landholders (nobles), in return for their protection.

?The inhabitants of Mud seldom questioned their place in the Imperium of Man, fearing the God-Emperor much like their local landlord. Zealous clergy members kept the peasants in line; Everywhere there were churches and chapels, adorned with images of the God-Emperor and the horrors awaiting those who rejected Him. Every year, Imperial Cargo Ships arrived at designated spots, where locals amassed their tithe of crops and minerals. These transactions were smooth in general, and only occasionally did the tax collectors need to make use of their heavy bolters.

Indeed most inhabitants of Mud were aware, in a vague sense, of the existence of modern technology. The jet-driven Imperial Cargo Ships were proof enough, but there were other visitors as well, such as trade ships from neighbouring planets. Despite these interferences, the inhabitants of Mud took little interest. On the military side, modern rifles were considered dishonourable, and were effectively ...

Dakka Forum: Battle ready standard?

Posted: 2020-08-09 03:59:07
Forum post by TheHorror!, 70 responses at time of this post.

So, now that Battle Ready standard can potentially win you 10 victory points the definition of the term gets a little more important. Is it defined anywhere in the Core Book? Sorry if it?s in there and I just haven?t spotted it.

Is this simply one of those things where common sense prevails: if you are even playing this rule you just look at the models and agree that a reasonable effort has been made?

Or do you use the description of battle ready from the GW painting guides? In that case they seem to require the use of a technical paint on the base or you aren?t getting the points :-)
