I finally just read the rules PDF. And you know what, it's an interesting game. It totally turns the hobby on its head.

The hardest thing to come to grips with is game balance because there are no points. This leads me to think that GW have intentionally removed points to change the purpose of the game. Previously the purpose was a contest between players to see who would win. With the removal of points the only remaining logical purpose is that the point of the game is cooperative fun.

In order to have fun I must work with my opponent to plan the battle if we want it to be a contest or a close fight, otherwise it's a mishmash. A mishmash can be fun too.

Fundamentally the purpose has changed.
