Little confused by the CCF I am working on for my Mumakil. Does the Mahout (driver) who usually rides the beast count as part of the crew to be costed for? He doesn't normally fit IN the howdah like a chariot driver. I want him to have armour, some missile capability (javelins) and a shield as per some historical equivalents. I presume I will have to cost him separately.

I mention it because the mahout is not costed for in the Elephant example quoted in the Rulebook, just 3 spear armed crew

I think in the elephant example the mahout is assumed to be a non-combatant and therefore not calculated. If you do want him included you could calculate the cost of his attacks and add it to your vehicle. You wouldn't need to worry about his wounds and armour as that will be part of the vehicle as a whole.

personally i'd treat him as a nice bit of decor to the miniature and keep to the profile as written.
