It is a real "run what you brung" type game now. Effectively you have whatever army you like, however, having a massive army means you are vulnerable to Sudden Death and also, if you take a long time to deploy, which you undoubtedly will, you will go second.
I can see where they are going with it, and the rules are refreshingly simple, and from what I can see there is nothing stopping people from organising their own games on an equal footing amongst each other. Pick up games would be interesting though, as would any tournament.
Theoretically, you could field hundreds of miniatures and be up against 20, and still lose (or utterly obliterate your opponent).
As regards to points, you could use the points system from 8th edition? Myself, I'm probably going to give it a go as it is, rather than keep old ideas from other GW games. It might work out.
