Assuming that's right, a few questions: Does the commander count towards an...

According to the latest muster flowcharts, both Chimaeras and Manticores can only be mustered by a Flesh Drune or by Alix, unless they're bound to a goad drune. So I don't think this works (although I'd very happily be told otherwise).
