Tau drones and kill points

Post#1 » Jan 31 2017 03:08

Hey ATT,

I've got a question and I wanted to see what you all think since it isn't addressed in the codex very well in my opinion.

Do units comprised entirely of drones count for kill points? The codex says that they aren't scoring, and giving up kill points makes them scoring (for your opponent). Spore mines have a similar rule but they flat out state they don't give up kill points.

What do you think?

If I remember correctly, drones that were purchased as a unit do count as a victory point if destroyed, otherwise count as the unit/vehicle they were part of for victory points.

Scoring Unit is a fix term. It determines if a unit can fullfill objectives etc. Getting killed is not part of such and thus they do award killpoints. The only exception is Drones that started the game as part of a vehicle which only award a victory point if the vehicle is destroyed as well as explicitly mentioned in the codex.
