Tomb Kings - does the Banner of Undying Legion/attribute for raising the dead raise from the dead a characters chariot after it has been destroyed?

No sir, I wish it did though.

Well that sucks.

I love the idea of a Chariot but it's a tad liability right?

Not just for Tomb Kings, but across the game. Ridden monsters and targetable mounts of all kinds were hit brutally hard by cannons and their being a 'template' weapon. In your gaming group, try out cannons needing to randomize hits like other non-template missile weapons and watch the meta change significantly.

Alternatively, in End Times they started (for reasons) to use fully combined profiles for all riders and mounts. It's one of the more frustrating parts of trying to use those models in games with regular ones, and GW could have easily written rules for fully combined stats for all monsters and riders to make them work...but I think we've got a good handle on how much effort GW wants to put into game design lately. That being said, if you ever do play end times (or if your group wants to give it a go) try fully combined stats, it's not hard to work out and if nothing else, different.

Combined stats work very cleanly too. I think we'll try that.
