Well last night I played a game of WFB at 1500 pts. and I have to say, that the new rules are ok. The more I play with them, the less annoying they are. Last night my 1500 points of vampires narrowly beat 1500 points of daemons, with just five black knights and the vampire lord left while my opponent had nine blood letters left.
I'm still positive that they could have adjusted the point costs for vampires down a little with the faq's but I suppose they wanted to nerf them since everyone was whining. Oh well, I guess I can keep playing my vamps until I finish my ogres.
