I'm not interested in fire elementals and all the other "new" minions that the dragons are supposed to have. Besides, they would require me to use the old generic moulds. I like the orc, undead etc. miniatures.
Could I play with the dragons, but make their minions the same as the original/alternate generals? i.e. Brimstone has the demons, Onyx has undead, and green dragon has the orcs? Does this create pitfalls?
It will just make it slightly easier. No other pitfalls
