No photo may depict a single model or unit? How are you supposed to see any kind of details? Your just gonna get six very similar photos in that case?

1000 points? Come on. I can hardly show my necron army well on 1000 points. 1500 would be better.

The aim here is so that people don't win just because they happen to have one particularly well painted unit.
This is about the army as a whole!

Unlikely. The rules state "full, Force Organisation legal". To field a Super Heavy it must be fielded as a separate detachment (under the old rules this would necessitate having at least 2000 points but this specific caveat is no longer in print). Stating "full, Force Organisation legal" gives the implication that we're limited to a single Force Organisation chart, and thus single detachment, disallowing Super Heavies and Gargantuan Creatures.

Superheavies will not be allowed - we don't want the army to be 'dominated' by a massive model.

Well obviously if u take 6 photo's of that one particular unit then i'd like to think people would see throught that. Six photo's is plenty to get 2 good full army shots, 1 hq shot and three squad shots for example. I just think if you have to hold the camera that far away that you've gotta get more than one unit in each shot, you won't get much detail in there.
