Also, a really interesting point of view from Chris (http://thefieldsofblood.blogspot.com/2011/04/alive-kicking-empire-in-flames-tos.html)
So without sabotaging the magic phase, and allowing people to use lord-level characters, surely the games were a disaster? How could people have fun playing WFB by the book? Strangely, the games were lots of fun, by all reports. People had loads of fun. The game, magic included, works fine and EiF showed it.
Go Warhammer 8th ed (and Chris)!!
