Right, situation: a vampire armed with the blooddrinker sword is fighting a model with equal initiative. The enemy does exactly enough unsaved wounds to kill the vampire, but the vampire does N wounds as well, with them striking at the same time. Does the vampire die?
If the vampire was striking after the enemy, it would die because it wouldn't have a chance to attack back. Also, if the vampire struck before it wouldn't be able to heal any wounds because it hasn't suffered any yet. But it's not either of these situations so I'm stuck.
Standard GW answer would be the player who turn the combat takes place in decieds
as its attackes at same time i would personally agre that as each wound was lost it was restored as this would fit nicly witht hte cinematic that most gamers have in their mind about combats
three examples based on wounds caused = to wounds on profile -
1) vamp strikes after oponent tough cookies hes dead
2) Vamp and oponent hit at same time All rules aplly at same time so wounds would be healed
3) vamp hits first all wounds heald by sword are wasted as they happen before he takes damage so he might still die
RAW: The vamp lives in this strange situation.
RAI: The vamp would die.
So what type of game is this. If its friendly, die. If its competitive, live.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I'd say dead. At the moment he inflicted the wounds, he still had all 3 of his own.
Even if it's slightly different, he's still dead since you can't magically heal him back on to the table.
That's my take.

The wording of blood drinker states "regains a wound suffered earlier in the battle", in this situation the wound is suffered at the same time, not earlier, so can't be regained.
