Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I'm a little confused when it comes to special characters that take up two hero slots and must be the general of your army (i.e. Borgut Facebeater) . Does this mean you cannot take a lord then?
What I'd like in my 'Ard Boyz army is Borgut and a Warlord mounted on a Wyvern. Is this possible?
No, it does not. It means that you take Borgut and can fill the rest of the character slots in any way you wish, but if Grimgor isn't in the army, Borgut will be the General no matter what.
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
If he is playing with enough points and has enough Lord/Hero slots leftover he can field both. Whether he uses both or not borgut will have to be the general like you said
