Default Scoring Units

...what units qualify to score?

FW, XV8s, Piranhas, Drones - I know for sure as a YES
Sniper Teams = NO

Stealths? Broadsides (lol)? HQ's? HQ's in units? HH? Skyray?

I'm curious b/c of this huge arguement on the warhammer.org forum here. I don't want to be cheesy or cheat, but have a clear definition of the rules.

The only tau unit that I know for sure that is none-scoring is the Sniper drone (since it is clearly stated).

Also I believe the if your XV-8 commander and ethereal are Independant character they are none-scoring (a characteristic of IC if I recall well) but if you add drones or Bodyguard/honour Guard then they are scoring unit.

I refer thee to the table in the "Missions"-section of the Rulebook (I think it is only in the BIG Book, not the BfM-Booklet, though); it explains quite thoroughly what is a scoring unit, and what isn`t.

In short: Everything that isn`t an IC, a unit under half strength or a dedicated transport is scoring.

No, they are never scoring. Their UNIT is, though; but their points aren`t added to the scoring unit. So a Bodyguard worth 100 points and a Commander worth 100 points are never a 200point-scoriung unit; only the Bodyguards count.

AAND don`t forget vehicle Drones and dedicated transports - non-scoring, as well!

Cheers,

So a Shas'El or Shas'O that JOINS an XV8 unit adds his points to the unit or does not?
