Again to you fat tree, page 55 under the title of Monstrous Creatures it does not say they can or cannot claim table quarters, and since it was not listed right there I was hoping to get a friendly point in the right direction instead of.

You should realy read up your rule book before posted useless threads like this. Other then that i don't think they can.

Replys like that make it seem like you don't know either.

Woah, both of you relax.

All units are scoring unless a rule specifically says otherwise. I don't know of one for MCs offhand, so Im going to say they are probably scoring.

As they are not artillery, vehicles or independent characters, I would assume they would count as 'non-vehicle unit'. I think in codex entries, it lists monstrous critters as units of one.By that logic, As long as the Monstrous Creature is not an independent character, it can capture objectives and all that jazz.

I would say the do because in the nid codex it doesn't say they cant .
It would say in the codex under there entry like for zoanathopes are living artillary because 0f this they dont count as scoring units and cannot caputre table quaters.
It has no such entry for carnifex's or hive tyrants.

Default Re: Monstrous Creatures = Scoring Unit

There's a table somewhere at the back of the BGB that lists all the scoring criteria.

Basically, Monstrous creatures are scoring units as long as they are not BELOW 50% of their starting strength. So once they have lost more than 50% of their wounds they are non scoring.
