Hey

Basically I’m using Gordrakk in a destruction grand alliance set up. It states in the rule book your warlord can choose a trait and artifacts from the destruction list. However in Azyr list building he is unable to take either a artifact or trait.

TLDR, can he take one or both?


Also bonus questions,

are mount traits confined to a orruk book list?

And, do dankhold troggboss’s make other Troggs battle line in destruction list or only a Gitz list?

Thanks

Named characters cannot take artefacts or command traits.

You'll want to make a different model your general usually, otherwise you essentially lose the command trait. Though some named characters have special abilities that only apply if they are your General, so it's not always a given.

I'm pretty sure that mount traits are Orruk warclan lists only, and Troggbosses making Troggoths Battleline is Gloomspite lists only. Neither of these abilities are on the warscroll, only found in the respective books.

You generally lose out on a lot of useful abilities if you take a Grand Allegiance. Its a totally valid choice for more casual or narrative games, but if you are playing in a more competitive environment it's not a good idea and you'll be better off building an army based on a specific Battletome.

Thanks for the reply, I was under the impression that despite losing on a lot of useful abilities you still gained, the artifacts, warlord traits and army trait from the core rulebook for destruction army's?

They do not seem terrible, any of them stick out as decent to other people?

You do, but you usually get a lot more for the allegiance abilities in Battletomes. It does vary though, and will depend on the models you run.
