Default Demon Princes and table quarters ?

Hey guys.

Another question.

Can a demon prince capture table quarters, i didn't think so but my friend begs to differ.

Independent characters obviously can't, but this is were the problem came from.
Is the demon prince counted as an I.C or non-vehicle unit, because also being a monstrous creature it counts as ten models.

Give us your thoughts.

Gamblor.

Your friend is right. A Daemon Prince can take table quarters, as it is a Monstrous Creature, not an Independent Character.

When it comes to VP and the likes, it counts as a non-vehicle unit and it captures table quarters like any other monstrous creature.

Heya,

Just as our man Vyper just put it.

In the old codex, the Daemon Prince could not as he was not a scoring model. But in the new codex, the Daemon Prince is no longer an independent character and instead simply a monstrous creature, thus a scoring model who can capture quarters, objectives, and all that. A very good thing in our favor as they are no longer empty points, but instead, great points of scoring goodness.

Cheers,
