I have the "Building Miniatures" box, and there are 14 churches. Why does the rulebook mention the number "7" in section 1.1?

It is 7 for each faction. 7 for the Thegn and 7 for the Housecarls. 7+7 = 14. Edit: And they could have made that clear in the rules, but didn't. I love the base game but the expansion has rule holes that indicate very poor blind-playtesting and/or development.

I think you are too kind. There are signs of NO blind play-testing, and not much consideration for how some of the mechanisms will impact game play.

And while the rules do have some glaring problems, you aren't being fair this time.

The first line under Setup reads:

"Each English player places 7 Church tiles (14 total) on any City shires on the map."

I think that is quite clear. Yes, it could have been even more clear with something like "the player controlling each English faction places..." but it's obvious they are trying to fit the expansions into one page and this one is snug.
