I was thinking about creating a Cult of Slaanesh armylist for fun and noticed something about the lists made by other people.

In many of the 2k lists, a Druchii Anointed (Lord choice) and a couple Sorceresses (Heroes) are taken.

As I understand it, the BRB states whichever character that has the highest leadership is the General of the army. According to the Cult of Slaanesh rules, a Druchii Anointed can never be the army's general, however the Anointed has a higher LD than the sorceresses....

So would 2k lists containing the Anointed be against the official rules? BTW, I know that it's cool if my opponent is cool with it....I'm just curious.

No, because the rules for CoS say, that a sorceress should be general.
See the druchii annointed more as a BSB (in rules for generals).

Armybook specifics overrule BRB generalities. You should also notice that the Cult must be led by a Soceress.

i dont think The Cult is tournament legal, although you might get some people to play fun games against you. that being said, you can totally make a witch elf army outta the new DE book, with nothing but witch elves, if you wish.

but yeah, as a rule of thumb, armybook overrides rulebook.

If something is stated not to be allowed to be the army genral, it cannot be the army general even if it has the highest leadership.

Bretonnian lord with the virtue of the ideal. While he's ld9 he can't be the general.
WE alter kindred lord, ld10 can't be the general.

Both legal to use in a 2k game if you wish to take them.
So long as you have another non BsB character to lead the army of course!
