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: The great 2018 hobby stashbusting and UFO-hunting challenge!

Posted: 2018-01-23 18:59:07
Forum post by jorny, 44 responses at time of this post.

Ok. We all have it. The lead pile, the great unpainted grey mountain of shame, the stash etc... With some concern I have noticed that mine have grown considerably the last two years, despite selling off some stuff before moving to the city where I live now. I also have quite a few of what in the knitting world is known as UFOs (UnFinished Objects), projects that are half finished, models that have been undercoated, basecoated but never finished. I want my hobby to be about playing, building and painting, not about buying stuff and putting it in a closet.

So to get something done about this I have deviced a challenge for myself, and I thought it would be fun to post it here and see if someone else is interested to join me! The challenge have two parts. The Idea is that everyone that joins should post their goals in this thread

Paint to purchase ratio.
This is the ratio between how many models or miniature you have to finish painting before buying another. My goal is to decrease my stash and buy a lot less, so my ratio is five to one. I also build some scale models so I have the same rule for those. I also include miniatures from miniature heavy boardgames in to the miniature category. You set this ratio yourself. Since this challenge is about stashbusting I think a two to one ratio is a minimum goal. However, if you are new to the hobby or a veteran without a stash (which means that you probably also are a unicorn) a one to one ratio is OK.

Area 51 policy
Your Area 51 policy is how you deal with half finished stuff. Your UFOs. The goal is to reduce or limit the amount of UFOs you have. The rules for this goal you define yourself. I have a Kvissle letter tray from IKEA on my desk where I keep the miniatures that I have started the last two or three years. The rest of my collection is kept in a closet. For me the rule is that no new miniatures or projects c...

Dakka Forum: I'm starting to wonder if 7th was more balanced.

Posted: 2018-01-23 16:59:07
Forum post by Jaxler, 74 responses at time of this post.

As of right now, I think codex releases have actually made balance worse. Guard dropped the ball and essentially feels like a black hole in the meta that warps the space around it. Either you can handle guard and your competitive, or you can't. There are fewer armies that I'd consider a 'contender' in this edition than there were at the end of 7th.

7th edition viable competitive armies:
Gene stealers, Eldar, Yinarri, necrons , 1k sons, space wolves, Dark angles, Space marines, Ad-mech soup, Knights,Tau, demons, renegade knights, renegades

8th edition
Eldar, Guard, Tyranids, Demons, CSM, space marines, admech

While I feel like the gap between the worst armies and the best armies has closed a little, I'm not sure if there are anywhere near as many 'best armies'. This is mixed with the fact that elite armies are straight out garbage right now because anything that's an infantry unit with more than 12 points per model is trash. Games in 7th also were far less often decided by who got first turn, or decided by turn 2. I don't know how I feel about this edition anymore.
