Q: What happens when a unit arrives from reserves but is unable to completely move onto the board?
A: The unit is destroyed and removed from play.
So a Tanks that is longer than 6" has to move so that it is completely on the board or else it is destroyed!?
Also means that if the Tank has to Tank Shock / Ram in order to get on the board, and a DoG imobilizes/ stuns it and the Tank is not completely on the board, it will count as Destroyed!?
This also means that most tanks will not be able to shoot the turn they arive as they would be at cruising speed.?

yes, thats about right i think, maybe you can always move them on sideways?
YupAlso means that if the Tank has to Tank Shock / Ram in order to get on the board, and a DoG imobilizes/ stuns it and the Tank is not completely on the board, it will count as Destroyed!?The only vehicles that have problems doing this should be Super Heavies, Valkyries/Vendettas, and maybe raiders/ravagers (not like moving only combat speed matters to them much). All the other vehicles in standard play should be fine.This also means that most tanks will not be able to shoot the turn they arive as they would be at cruising speed.?
It is a sad state of affairs that if a superheavy tank does not start on the board, it's never going to enter play - which is why the idea of leaving one in reserve in spearhead games to avoid the pre-game hit is bloody stupid.
Even the Monolith and Landraider are just shy of 6 inches so they are fine at combat speed. Chimeras, Rhinos, Devilfish, Hammerheads, Waveserpents/Falcons, etc are all under 6 inches. The only vehicles I can think have an issue are the Stormraven (but they have PoMS) and the Vendetta/Valk (which isn't too bad).Why would this not affect every non fast vehicle that could not get on the board due to size? Sure thereis PotMS but it should effect many.
It can become interesting for Baneblades which, can move a max of 6". I believe their width including sponsons might be just over 6".
Also I had a Spearhead Tourney recently where my opponent had a shadowsword. Though I allowed him to move it on straight...in retrospect he should have had to move it on sideways (hence the main gun wouldn't have had any targets) then could move further and pivot on the following turn.
At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!
