grand triumph allied general

Post by marcpawl » Sun Sep 18, 2022 7:31 pm

For Grand Triumph
Does the allied general element have to be an element that is a designated general type in the allied army list?
The generals of the other main army
commands may be of any troop type
except:
a. The general may not be Skirmishers,
Rabble, or Artillery unless the command
contains no other troop types.
Looking at Alexander Imperial https://meshwesh.wgcwar.com/armyList/5f ... 2a/explore
Looking at the Indian Allies https://meshwesh.wgcwar.com/armyList/5f ... 9e/explore
Selecting Grand Triumph, Ally Army Command, the general has to be an Elephant, well I assume a rider on an elephant.

Can any other unit be chosen to be the general?

If you have an allied command in GT, that command is a regular-sized Triumph army, and must have the general be of a normal type for the Triumph army. The paragraph you cite is relevant to subsequent "main army" commands -- not subsequent (after the first one) allied commands.
