Here at Narrative Labs we believe that telling a story while playing miniature wargames is the best way to enjoy these wonderful games and so we’re fully dedicated to exploring narrative wargaming and having a lot of fun while doing it. We also believe that the best stories come from sharing great ideas and that’s why we let our viewers help drive forward the story, incorporating their ideas, where we can, and creating exciting narratives for all to enjoy.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar narrative play is all about story-telling. Imagine that you and your fellow players are the directors of a film.
