Start building your Drake army with $49.99 army bundles that include a dragon, supporting troops and creatures, a deck of cards, and free dice! Not only that, but everything in the store is on sale for 25-35% off!
Drake is a fantasy miniature wargame where each player fields an army led by a powerful dragon. The game is played with 28 mm miniatures, with massive dragon models as centrepieces of the army. The human models are true scale, which means that their proportions are not exaggerated or cartoonish, so the dragon models look terrifyingly huge compared to their followers!
The dragon leading your army also supports it by casting spells and summoning monsters! Players can change how their army plays by building a deck of cards that represent the spells their dragon can cast in the game.
Drake will be available in a two-player box that contains two dragons and everything you need to start playing games with a friend. Additional models and accessories can be purchased on the store, with more to come soon!
AGM is proud to present these condensed starter rules for Drake: The Dragon Wargame. This free to download document was designed to get new people into the game quickly and allow veteran players to get a fee for our game universe with ease. We hope you grab a copy!
All our spell cards and lots of other info is on our website
Drake, the game you helped to make a reality, is a social experience. Games of the scope and size of ours require a vibrant and involved community to reach their full potential. Our large production requirements keep us very busy; however, AGM is committed to increasing our customer engagement and continuing to promote Drake all over the world and the web, spreading our wings beyond the Kickstarter framework.
We are proud to announce that we will increase support to our awesome community in new and exciting ways this month, starting with our website’s new blog section! We already have several blogs live, and we intend to grow this section each and every month. It will also be a launching point for painting contests, Q&A segments, and other community-building initiatives.
Other public engagement announcements will be taking place this month, including updates on production. But for now please check out our amazing blogs!
What an amazing Kickstarter campaign this has been. We have been totally floored by the awesome support and input of you all. Thank you so very much! We have also really loved seeing the community develop further here, a big shout out to all of you who took time to answer questions and assist new backers in learning about the project. This means a huge amount for the AGM team and we look forward to continuing to support the community in the months to come!
There has been significant interest in our PayPal campaign. We know that some have had trouble getting involved through Kickstarter and so we are now offering those folks a chance to contribute through PayPal during our limited-time post-Kickstarter Campaign. Our pledge manager and Backer Survey below is set up to handle both new and existing backers.
You may change your pledge level to a higher one or add new ones, with the exception of any pledge levels that had a limited quantity available during the Kickstarter.
Alright everyone its time for the amazing PayPal / Pledge manager survey! This is the time to let us know the specifics of your order, and add any additional things you may like.
Also, for people who could not join though the Kickstarter pay system, this PayPal is open to the public! We would love to welcome new backers to Drake! As the interest has been very high AGM is going to be posting some new awesome surprises for folks that I am sure you will all enjoy, sneak peeks will follow shortly! Come and join us, all KS II Horizons pledges are open!
Action Games Miniatures is down to the home stretch for their Drake II Kickstarter campaign. They’ve made it through a bunch of stretch goals, so your pledge is worth just that much more. Go check it out before it’s gone.
What an amazing campaign it has been, BUT there is still time left. The most exciting moments of this Kickstarter are yet to come, massive crossbows, tribal monsters, chant magic joined beasts and DRAGONS!
Stretch Details: $82K – Crotalis – The Sand Viper of Death – Shi Nation – Dragon – Pledge $39
Only a few of these terrifying beast have awoken, and each one of them brings fear and doom. The southern Shaka Dragons moved quickly to appease these creatures, who competed with them for food and resources in the old world. Surprisingly they took to the Shaka’s plan of alliance and war quickly, most think too quickly… The Crotalis are nearly impossible to strike in combat, their shifting coils move with blinding speed. They posses the most potent venom of the Dragon races, with a bite capable of stopping a mountain Dragon in his tracks. While they do not have the diplomatic touch of the Shaka, they lead their human “allies” effectively, and strike with might against the enemies of the south.
In the breeding chambers of the Kaymayuk capital city Great Mystics Dragons endlessly experiment with creating new living weapons. Aided by subservient priests and priestesses these chambers are the birthplace of both horror and wonder. In one litter of joined jaguars there was created an amazing mutation, a mighty cat with the wings and claws if an eagle. As the Saan Dragon overseeing the birthing moved to destroy the failed experiment, one priestess, Akra, begged mercy for the creature. She claimed to have a vision of its creation and of it bringing glory to their people. The Dragon was amused by this and bound the beast to Akra’s mind. Now she must fight on the front lines to prove her chosen beasts value, and strikes with deadly precision against the enemies of The Great Mystics.
Action Games Miniatures has a preview render up of the Shisha stretch goal for their Drake miniatures game Kickstarter. There’s a good chance it seems that they’ll make it. Full-size photo is way down at the bottom of their page.
One of our weirder beings, the Shisha is created from chant enhanced herbs. When smoked it covers the user like armour, and grants them amazing short range missile attacks. Pledge to help us unlock this cool unique model!
Hey all! It is time for Drake to return! Many people from all over the world have asked us if they can get involved in our amazing game, now is the time! Thanks to the support of our amazing backers over the last year, we are able to offer a 4th force for our game. This exciting campaign will hopefully unlock some awesome stretch goals and allow us to raise money for packaging and shipping, to launch our game commercially. In celebration of this announcement we present our Drake Mini-Book. Please download a copy!
Come with us! Join as a Dragon general in the land of Dara, and help bring Drake to game stores around the globe
Action Games Miniatures regrouped after their first Kickstarter for Drake and had a very successful second run, making over 1000% funding. Now they’re about to start shipping out the game to an anxious public.
Our Dragon Game is about to leave the nest! Time to start letting the world know.
Drake: The Dragon Wargame is about to send its first shipment. Presenting the first of many cool dragons: The Rish Dragon. We are updating our website with all our new minis and rules and getting ready to start sharing our style with the world, come check us out!
Action Games Miniatures had a lot of success with their Drake Kickstarter the second time around. They know not everyone might have been able to partake in the event, so have started taking pre-orders on their website as well for any who may have missed out.
From the announcement:
WOW what an incredible Kickstarter! Thank you all so very much for such an amazing experience!
In response to requests from the public AGM will be offering a PAY PAL page which will still give you the same options as our Kickstarter for a limited time, ending on May 3rd.

Action Games Miniatures has just one day left on Kickstarter for their Drake: The Dragon Wargame. Can they make it to $100k?
From the update:
I wanted to take some time here to take about our game and story, as well as where we are headed in the future. I also have some tasty concept art tid bits to share!
Cousins: Draconic cousins are a really interesting part of our development. Not only do they provide an awesome opportunity for living ancient beasts to run wild, but they offer important insight into the old world, and the structure of power created by Dragon society. Cousins are by and large fairly intelligent beings, many of which equal or exceed the mental capacity of an average human. The awakening was traumatic for them, and most were keen to keep the ties they shared with their Dragon lords. The new world is an exciting place however, and as the cousins become more adjusted to their new environment, some may begin to question their place, and wish to start exploring Dara on their own…
Speaking of cousins, the Lo’san have long been formidable guard beasts of Dragon lairs. Scavengers who are attracted to the remains of the mighty Dragons kills, they have for many centuries guarded their large master’s homes with loud throaty calls alerting all nearby of intruders.
Action Games Miniatures keeps rolling along with their Drake: The Dragon Wargame Kickstarter project, making over 6x what they were hoping for. They’ve got some new 3D renders up as well as some painted finished versions.
From the update:

Action Games Miniatures has regrouped, refocused, retooled, reevaluated and relaunched their Drake miniatures game on Kickstarter. Round 2… Fight!
From the announcement:
Drake is a 28mm true scale miniature skirmish game featuring ancient dragons who have risen from a protective sleep to find themselves in a changed world. After The Great Awakening, different species of dragons migrated across the continent of Dara and quickly subjugated the local inhabitants through conquest, diplomacy and trickery. As their armies of beastly creatures, humanoid allies and dark spellcasters grew so did their thirst for battle. Dara erupts into war as the dragons fight for dominance and resources.
Our game uses an original set of game rules. You select the abilities of your Dragon Leaders from a library of spell cards, and play from a starting hand of 7 cards. Numerous enhancements, fireblasts and chants are all yours to command. These cards are available in an open format allowing you to know what you’re getting. Totally customize your deck, and build an incredible strategy. Drake uses completely new fantasy creatures and concepts. This is a fast-paced game with a small model count that rewards tactics, nerves of steel and quick responsive actions – especially on your opponent’s turn!
Here is a Great W.I.P that we are working on right now. Karak and Hel’sender. Grom Champion and his favored pet/mount/killing machine. We can’t wait to have all the finishing touches done and have this beasty combo out for you to see!
Here is the 3D design, and finished model for our Garrick Force Glypton beast. These creatures have a devastating short range Area Effect attack using solidifying magma to encase those lucky enough to survive the scorching heat. More models coming soon!
Action Games Miniatures gives us another look at a 3D render for Drake. This one is for Ghast the Alchemist and son.
From the preview:
Heres a quick look at our first “Un-aligned” model which can be available to any Force.
Fleeing the destruction of his mountain tribe this brilliant but brooding creature sells his services to the highest bidder. Poison weapons, intoxicating brews that make even the meekest troops fight like lions, and clouds of static charged smoke make him well worth the money!
There will be some changes to pose and positioning before we cast this bad boy. As with several of our infantry sized models we have displayed lately, this pose is not totally finalized. (however the final won’t be too wildly different, no hand stands for this fellow!)
Action Games Miniatures has been very responsive to the questions and comments to their news posts. Pretty awesome of them. They’ve wanted to give some more detail about their Level 4 purchase level over on Indiegogo.
From the update:
Hello everyone, thanks for all your comments and words of encouragement so far; much appreciated! Our DRAKE box is really the best and most cost effective way to get into our game. For 50 bucks you get 1 huge Dragon, 3 elite troops, a mighty warrior beast, 60 card deck, rules and dice. Our listed “Starter Box’s” are more like army box’s, and include enough models for a sizable game. The combination of models and cards really adds resolution to every move, making games with a few models really enjoyable. Imagine giving the leader of your favorite mini game a customizable spell deck, rather then a fixed list of abilities. Thats what we have done here! Our cards are sold in an open format, meaning that you know which cards are in a pack before you buy. Check our Indiegogo video for more info on game play. Thanks! (Battle report video coming soon…)
Action Games Miniatures continues their campaign over on Indiegogo to fund Drake. To help out, they’ve got a video up of what they’ve been working on behind-the-scenes.
From the update:
WERE BACK! Action Games took a short break to produce a ton of new sculpts as well as a new video with more details about our game. People have wanted to see more about our world and we are happy to provide it! Here is our new Promo video, please check out our Indiegogo for LOTS of new sculpts, HUGE New Starter Boxs, and great new art.
Drake keeps chugging along on Indiegogo. Action Games Miniatures has got a pair of new art pieces to show off today for the game.
From the preview:
Gearing up for some big things this week. Beta Quickstart rules for all to inspect soon! FORCE pics of our ready to be printed 3D starter sets, and if all holds well one of our Dragons IN THE FLESH!
