Hordes are tough especially legions of nagash. I played against them with a 7 man nighthaunt warband (15 models in the legion list. I got lucky by having 2 rounds with quad 5s for reap like corn with my grimghast. As he was so bunched up it hit nearly every Skeleton. Had it not been for that I would have no way to win. Don't let the 3 inch move fool you they can be quick with van hels ability

Honestly, I played a horde guy who tried that very same strategy, and I beat him fairly easily. I did play as the cypher lords. I would not go full elite though because this is an objective game. Plan your movements and make use of your abilities. Most models that make up the hordes are easily taken out. For example, the skeletons only have 8 wounds. When I played them, against a known power gamer at my store. He listen to the video reviews/batrep..and decided to horde with LoN. My luminate wipe out three  skellies in one turn. With the quad ability. All because he tried to tie me up...lol. I ended up winning the battle  qnd it was very one side.

I thought of the same thing, and even a little more when it comes to convergence missions, using non chaos warbands to represent an "NPC" warband that the enemy has to chew through for thier story mission games.

I think that’s a brilliant idea. The designers obviously had to really streamline their game to make it accessible, but they planted a lot of narrative seeds to encourage you to build off of that. They can’t openly get you to homebrew and proxy like they used to 25 years ago, but the system feels very open ended!

I have a box of chaos hounds that are definitely going to serve as chaos beasts.

I know there are likely to be new chaotic beasts added sooner or later, but is there any reason why you couldn't sub in thematically appropriate fighters from the existing warbands as random twist deck monsters instead of/in addition to using the ones from the starter box ? 

E.g having a particular area be infested with chainrasps/savage orcs/squigs that attack everyone. Or for the "Apex Predator" twist card where you add one 30-wound variant of a monster, you could add an ogre/troll/chaos spawn and use the rest of the Ogor Breacher statline for it 

Idk I just I like the idea of a mighty chaos warband finally brought low by the rogue squig herd that chased it across the bloodwind spoil for eight days and nights

Chaos spawn or bust

For someone who does not have the game yet I was hoping to get an answer. 

Can you only take one leader in a list?

Are there any other restrictions on list building?

Thanks.

Poorhammer ( Poorcry?) tip :

for those of you who own the storm strike / tempest of souls boxset for AoS, the paper gamemat that comes with it is 22 by 43 inches. So if you cut 13 inches off lengthwise, you’re left with a  cheap, regulation size foldable mat. Bonus point : if you cut off the right side there won’t be any immersion ruining pictures of buildings on it 😂

     @Vasshpit Yes, only one leader can be on your roster and a maximum total of 20 models. You can use a maximum of 15 in a battle with a minimum of 3 models and worth 1k points. No other restrictions given in the manual.
