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: Closeted Gamers

I live in rural Iowa. Low population density and having GW stores few and far between means that miniature gamers are more of a niche' hobby cross section. In the last couple months though, I have learned that one of my customers is into miniature wargames (most WWII stuff), my future brother in law builds miniature dioramas, my wife's cousin (very close to her) loves to paint D&D minis, and a friend found out what I do and said her ex boyfriend used to play.

I'm beginning to wonder how many people are into miniature hobbies that I just don't know about. Are people just that private, or just worried to be labeled a nerd?

Dakka Forum: BUILD a Chaos Warband With Me So I Don't Feel Lonely

Posted: 2017-07-21 17:59:07
Forum post by EmberlordofFire8, 62 responses at time of this post.

Yeah, I might have made a bet that I could build a better 40k Chaos Cultist warband than someone. And I might have rolled my Chaos-Dedication-Dice and got SLAANESH, the one god I've never done befor. And I might (okay, I DEFINATLY DO) want to keep this cheap, cause I have a bunch of Eldar and KSons on my "to buy list". So help me! Please!

So I thought to myself: why not make OTHER people suffer with me! Muahaha (Slaanesh has already taken hold of me)!!! So I decided to create this: if you want to build a Chaos warband, this is your chance! Document your progress here, and at the end, you could win (something). Just reply with a short description of your Warband.

En Chaosity Waerbend:
Your Warband must have at least ONE daemon-equivalent, one psyker (unless your want Khorne), some kind of Priest or icon and a leader. The Warband must have between 4 and 20 members, but they can be anyone you want! Oh and it needs to be finished by AUGUST 12, 2017 . Points will be awarded for paint job quality, conversions and backstory, plus all-around creativity! So don't worry, just EMBRACE CHAOS!!!
