Default what counts as scoring with tau?

as subject implies, what counts as a scoring unit, or objective holding unit, in the tau army?

ive read and been told its only what counts as "troop choices", well we only have technically Firewarriors, and Kroot, right?

do Pathfinders count? theyre "Fast Attack" which is what confuses me.

if anyone can help, could you make a list of what counts as a scoring unit please! thanks.

Fire Warriors and Kroot. That is it. If FW are embarked in a Devilfish then the FW+DF are a scoring unit together.

Matt covers it.

in 5th Ed non vehicular troops count as scoring. the rest can contest.

In the Case of tau we have 2 choices only. 3 if you use Forge World models...which is about the same for most army.

Ethereal bodyguards may or may not count as a scoring unit.

No they don't, they are a retenue thus a HQ choice, not a troop choice.

Retenue are like Dedicated transport they are outside of the FoC really.

agreed. you buy them as a retinue for an HQ slot. if they're not infantry and they're not paid for with a troops slot, they're not scoring. now, if only tau had special characters like marines that make better units troops...

Almost guaranteed to happen, but... what, besides Pathfinders and Vespid, could you make Troops that wouldn't be overpowered?
