Updated White Council (BoFA) and Allies

The updated White Council list under "war band special rules" says that a "White Council force may only include a single war band."
Simple question: Does that mean that the White Council cannot ally with other lists in an army?

i.e.: Can Galadriel, Lady of Light not ally as an individual character from the White Council with a Lothlorien army?
nor Elrond, Lord of the West with a Rivendell or House of Elrond army?

I would be extremely thankful if this were the case, simply to keep "Saruman the Wise" out of any army. Period. No matte how much I want to use fancy Elrond! :lol:

I hope not. I expect tjis one to get FAQ'd pretty quickly. I love the war adpect Galadriel, but I'd rather field the Lady of Light version as a Galadhrim ally.

Having reread that section. It reads to me that you can only field one White Council warband. So you can ally with other forces because they are not explicitly banned from allying, but these heroes are all deployed as a single warband and cannot be split up and deployed seperately as multiple White Council warbands. This is a change from the original wording that allowed for multiple White Council warbands..

I am late to the party here, but this was my take on the rule wording as well.

Ally = Good
Multiple White Counsel Warbands = Bad.
