Default Monstrous Creatures and VPs

I was playing a match today against a disgustingly beardy Tyranid monsterous creature force and his allied Iron Warriors. It came down to the question of VPs and I wondered simply if they count as characters or troop squads (doesn't make sense at all the second option). Can anyone clarify?

Page 85 of the rulebook, from the table. Non-vehicle unit.

They're not independent characters unless they have that rule in their profile, and the classification Tyranid monstrous creature isn't used in the new Codex.

Not really, simply extremely large critters that count as a unit on their own.
Count the wounds left, if you're above 50%, it's a scoring unit.
