The bonus about death guard is their rite of war, call the “reaping” it allows you to take heavy support squad as troops. So you can get heavy weapons teams in troop choices.

Also you wants to read up on death guard power scythes, rad grenades and chemunition

I wouldn’t buy the old 7e rulebook off eBay - get the proper Heresy one from FW as there are changes and tweaks to the rules.

Does Heresy use a points based system (assuming it does) what's the typical points each in a game and how would this translate to number of models for say a loyalist chapter such as Blood Angels?

Its points based just like 40k used to be before 8th.

As for sizes of games there are many with 2000-3000pts being normal but the points rack up pretty quick. There are also other formats such as Zone Mortalis (ship boarding type battles), these suit lower points levels such as 750-1250pts and then there is the popular 'Centurion' format that is a fan-made rules set with a nod to the old style highlander lists from 5th edition with restrictions to focus on infantry rather than the big characters and tanks.

The size of an army can vary massively due to the numerous Rites of Wars (chapter tactics) that vary from all Terminator forces to ones with Predator tanks or dreadnoughts as troop choices.
