Dakka Painting & Modeling - an ever-expanding treasure chest of tips and tricks for the painter and modeler!

Anyone and everyone is encouraged to submit their own guides, reviews tutorials or other painting- and modeling-related articles. To do so, click on the Add an Article link on the left hand side of the screen and choose 'Painting/Modeling/Terrain/etc, Template' to start creating your report.

Hobby articles are always best when accompanied by pictures, so please be sure to include clear images wherever appropriate.

Please note that as with all articles in our wiki, pictures cannot be linked from other sources on the internet (such as an image hosting service you might have). Instead, all pictures must be first uploaded either to our gallery or directly into the wiki system itself (both of which are completely free for all members).

If you are having trouble figuring out how to create or format your article, please contact one of our article moderators for assistance, or just post your issue in the Nuts & Bolts forum.

Dakka Painting Challenges

These are bite-sized painting or modeling competitions that challenge Dakka users to paint and/or convert a model in a short time span (typically around a month) to see who can do the best job. This can be a great way to challenge yourself to take on a project you wouldn't normally bother to do, and if your model is cool enough you might even win a prize!
