Default Chaos Generals

In a standard Chaos force, does the General always have to be the character with the highest leadership; and depending on that general your type of army is chosen for you. This means that if you wanted in a 3000pt army to take an Exalted Sorcerer (Ld 8) and Greater Daemon (Ld 9), you would be force to take the Daemon as your general and also be forced to take a daemonic army, even if you want a mortal army. Or do you choose which type first and then the character with the highest leadership?

I'm pretty sure you choose the type of army before the general.

You decide the army first, im pretty sure you choose your general, its why the high elves have it so bad.

You can also buy some sort of master of mortals upgrade to allow a demon general field mortals as your type.

You decide whether your army is Mortal, Beast or Daemonic, then the character of that type, with the highest Leadership, is the General.

There are upgrades that allow exception, but as a general rule this works.
