When choosing a chariot mount for a character, are the points added to the character or is the chariot a seperate choice?

It depends on the wording.

If it says "may choose a chariot mount +xpts" or something similar then it is added to the character and doesn't take up a normal choice.

If it says "may choose a chariot mount chosen as normal from the x section" or something similar then it counts as a normal chariot choice.

It doesn't really matter unless the scenario includes some sort of "character points allowance". How the points are spent does come into play when working out victory points, but then the character and his (chariot) mount are worked out separately anyway.

As far as "slots" are concerned, the chariot is either taken as a regular core/special/rare issue, or it is not. The newer books tend toward the latter.

Thanks that's cleared it up for me.

A bit off topic but still connected to the topic of this thread:

What happens if a character riding a chariot is killed and he's the only crew member of the chariot (deamons for example). Is the whole model removed or does the chariot continue to fight?

As far as I could see there's no need for crew to be present in order to keep the chariot functional?

Presumably, the chariot continues to fight. In any case, the situation is only likely to happen with tomb kings and daemons.

War Alter. Happened in game last night, killed the Arch Lector off the top and then I'm stuck in combat with the bravest pair of horses you've ever met :)

True. It's a bit odd that the chariot continues to fight according to the main battle plan with no-one at the reins. But as far as the game mechanics are concerned it's not a problem.

In case of daemons and skeleton horses, one could argue that the dark magic that keeps them in the Warhammer world is able to provide them with some sense of direction. War altar is a bit more difficult, unless you explain it as a divine intervention from Sigmar himself.

But that is all pure fluffiness.
