There are a number of tanks in the game that can fire all their weapons after having moved up to 6".
Assume that the tank is perfectly positioned, all weapons just barely in range and out of assault range. The owner does not want to move his tank, but fears the perfect fleet roll and ensuing assault. He knows that if he doesn't move and a unit does manage to assault they will automatically hit. He decides to get the 4+ to hit bonus from having moved his tank "Up to 6in" by nudging it an 1/8th of an inch.
Anyone see any problem with this?
Perfectly legal. You've physically moved it less than 6", which meets the criteria for that to hit roll. If it ticks the box, it's legal.

This is best done by shuffling sideways the 1/8th of an inch by the sequence pivot, moving and re-pivot back again to face the enemy but only if the terrain allows this to be done.
This chain of events will make it “very” obvious to your opponent that you have indeed moved and can claim the benefits of doing so.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
The reason this is ok and works with RAI (can't believe i'm going to RAI) is because the moving of hte tank (even slowly)makes it hard to get your space marines crowbars into the cracks and pop the hood.
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
Cheesy in a couple of respects, but legal nonetheless.

I've read the rules and I agree it's technically perfectly legal.
My problems with it are twofold:
1) It seems a lot like an unexpected use of the rule. To go from 100% hit to 50% hit for a negligeable amount of movement is exactly that, cheesy.
2) Anytime a player touches his vehicle, there is now the potential that he infact moved the vehicle 'just a little bit', which opens a door of misunderstanding.
So basically I was looking for previous instances of this happening, rules I might not have known about and potential rulings on offical events or forums.
I got my answers. Although it's cheesy, its perfectly legal and GW has never said anything about it. Also, in the name of clarity, turning the vehicle 90, moving a touch and turning 90 again seems to be the appropriate action to take.
Thanks again guys.
