I need a quick understanding of the leman russ rules. I had a battle against a SM guy and we argued because I told him that I can move my LR 6 inches and fire its turret weapon and all sponsons, even if the turret is ordinance. Is that right?? PLease help
New rules in your Codex say that the Leman can fire it's Turret weapon and ONE other, regardless if the turret weapon is ordnance. This is the "Lumbering Beheamoth" rule.
"A love for tradition has never weakened a nation, indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril."

You can fire all of the weapons you could normally fire given your movement, plus the turret weapon.

The lumbering behemoth rule allows you to fire your turret weapon in additin to all other weapons you are normally allowed to fire, even if that weapon is ordance. Effectively making your turret a defensive weapon.
If you stay stationary then you are allowed to fire 1 ordance weapon or all other weapons. With a lean russ tank you may opt to fire all other weapons, not that you are able to fire at least 1 other weapon the lumbering behemoth rule allows you to fire your ordance turret as it is effectively a defensive weapon.
If you moved combat speed you are able to fire 1 weapon, and all defensive weapons. You may then choose to fire 1 sponson or hull weapon, and all defensive weapons, including your turret, even if it is ordance. Your question was about moving this speed, and yes you did it wrong. You may not move 6" and fire sponson, hull, and turret weapons, you must choose a single sponson or hull weapon to use.
If you moved cruising speed you are not able to fire any weapons, including defensive weapons and your turret.
Edit: Damn, ninja'd, twice!

In short, the SM guy was right.
If you move, you can fire your turret weapon, a single non defensive weapon (so a sponson, a lascannon, HKM, hull mounted heavy flamer, etc..), and any defensive weapons (stubber, etc..).
