I am a long time tabletop player for WH and 40k and this is my first time playing any card game for the IP. My wife and I got the core set and the Ulthuan expansion and I have some questions that I hope you guys don't mind answering.
1. My wife and I used to play Magic in the mid to late 90's when you had all kinds of instants and interrupts to manage. Reading the rules for WHI I am baffled when it comes to resolving what action goes first. Here is an example of a game we are currently playing: I am playing Dwarfs versus her Chaos. I am attacking her battlefield which had no defenders and use a tactic card to give one of my attackers +2 power for a total of +4. She then uses a card that inflicts damage to a unit equal to its power and since the unit had 3 hit points this killed the unit.
Reading the rules there is a section about "last in, first out" that said all actions resolve. What does this mean? Should my guy have inflicted +4 damage to her battlefied before he died or did the card that kill him happen before that could have taken place?
2. Are there more races than the 6 that are playble? I know there are neutral factions but I'd like to collect a Vampire Count deck. Do they have their own racial capital placard and racial symbol or are they just neutral and you can't use them as a stand alone deck?
3. Can Order decks fight other Order decks and Destruction versus Destruction? I know some neutral cards are only for each faction but I couldn't see anything in the rules other than you can't combine Order and Destruction cards in a deck.
4. Any recommendations on what additional packs or expansions to get? I'd like to play a Vampire Count army. I'm assuming there are other races like Skaven, Ogre Kingdoms, Chaos Dwarfs, Brettonians, etc. that you can play as neutral?
Thanks for any help!
