I picked up a copy of the General's Handbook for Warhammer Age of Sigmar last week. I think this book is, without a doubt, a direct response to community outcry about the lack of points, and subsequently, balance in Age of Sigmar. This looks like a pretty solid fix.
Matched Play is Age of Sigmar with points and a few modification to fix some of the more glaring issues. Spell casting has changed so that you may only attempt one casting of each spell per turn, regardless of the number of Wizards you have. Summoning was nerfed hard, but that was needed. Lastly, a roll of 1 always fails. In the core rules, it's possible to stack effects and get guaranteed successes where the roll doesn't really matter.
The list I'll be going with is as follows, to give you an idea of what a 1,000 point list looks like...
2x 10-man Liberator units
1x 5-man Retributor units
That's a total of 28 models. Granted, the Stormcast Eternals are all 2 or more wound models, but I think this gives a good indication that Matched Play isn't necessarily going to involve hundreds of models. Well, unless you play Grots. This is a 980 point Grot list...
1x Grot Shaman
3x 60-man Grot units
That's still "only" 181 models.
