A couple of days ago, my friend and i played a 9000 pt apocalypse battle with my marines vs his orks and eldar (don't ask why he had this alliance). On the first turn, he used flank march with careful planning to put almost 4000 pts behind my heavy weapon squads and assaulted all of them with harlequins, nobz, and boyz. i effectively lost on the first turn. i want to know, is it legal to assault on the turn a unit arrives from reserves, and can they do it if they flank march?
My friends and I have played it that you cannot assault on the turn you come in off Reserves but you can shoot. Essentially, we thought that it was like deep striking onto a table edge.
Officially I believe it is just like a normal move, only you move on from the table edge. It makes the use of Careful Planning (reserves on turns 1 and 2 instead of 2 and 3) and Flank March very, very powerful.
You put all your units in transports that come on also, so that if your opponent uses Ambush he can't instagank all your infantry models.

yeap, perfectly legal. One of the reasons why i feel flank march is too powerful/no brainer and will probably be removing it from the deck next apoc game I play
