Thanks for trying! Yes indeed it needs lot of updates which we are 
planning to do.

AFAIK there is no way to directly make a 1:n relation between nodes. 
But for your NodeType you can have a property (subnode) which is of 
type TYPO3.Neos.NodeTypes:ContentCollection where you can add n number 
of child nodes e.g. Images. There is a Media Browser functionality 
under development which I know but it is not fully visible at the 
moment. It supports attaching/uploading single image to a property but 
not many ATM. But still Media Browser is missing a general file upload 
of other Documents which I am not sure whether it is supposed to be 
part of the Media Browser.

Those were just few quick thoughts on top my mind :)
