Default Victory Points and Transports

I know that transports are not worth victory points, but do they increase the victory point value of the squad they are attached to? Let's say I have 100 points of Fire Warriors in a 100 point Devilfish. If my opponent reduces the squad to below half, without destroying the Devilfish, does he get 50 VPs or 100? Would destroying the Devilfish even factor into that?

Transports are definitely worth victory points. They just aren't scoring units. So you can't take objectives, but your opponent still gets points for killing them. But they don't add to the squad they are purchased for. So even if the enemy wipes out a unit of Fire Warriors, he gets no points for their Devilfish unless he destroys or immobilizes it as well.

You are welcome. One of the nice things about having the bookshelf right next to the computer.

Unless it is a Landraider Varient, they have a special rule that makes them scoring.

And thus they can hold objectives, table quarters, et cetera.

IIRC, Land Raiders are scoring units because they are not DEDICATED transports, and are bought with a Heavy Support Slot.

If you would buy a Land Raider as a dedicated transport for a unit, it wouldn`t be a scoring unit, as well.

CmdrBonesaw's got it right.
Land Raiders (and Falcons, Battlewagons, etc) are scoring units because they are ad hoc rather than dedicated transports.

Ok then, let me clarify. Black Templar Land Raider Crusaders that are Dedicated Transports for Crusader Squads/HQ Squads/Terminator Squads/Techmarines are scoring units due to a ruling undernieth the Transports rules on page 38 of the Black Templar Codex.

Okay then. Now that makes a bit more sense.
