I’m looking around to get clarification on this: are blog posts _without_ images not valid with regards to AMP?

That’s correct! Blog posts without at least one image is not valid for AMP.
This is because AMP displays an image in search results. Here’s a screenshot on how AMP pages appear in Google search results http://www.wired.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/amp_search_results_green.jpg
The image is used as part of the search result, so AMP pages without at least one image will not be indexed by Google.
