Should a Immobolized dead beable to move using wings of saguinis?
I am pretty sure rule wise they can not. But i think they should be able to since it is a psychic power moving them not something mechanical.
The real question is if you cast Wings do you count as Jump Infantry or do you count as both Jump Infantry and a Vehicle for movement purposes. I'd have to look at the exact wording of the Psychic Power to be sure, but I'd tend toward the former from what I remember (i.e. I believe it replaces your current unit type for movement purposes).
Again, I could be totally wrong though. I don't have the books with me at work (with good reason, I wouldn't get anything done! )
The wording on psychic power is like this:
"... . It allows the Librarian to move as if he had a jump pack. ..."
One could think that you'd be allowed to move, I don't think this is the case though.
Keep in mind that a walker normally moves as infantry, and still immobilized results prevent it from moving. Thus I see no reason that moving as if it had a jump pack would allow it to move when it wouldn't normally be allowed to otherwise.
The intention I think would be obvious that they couldn't move, that's what Immobilized/Stunned is meant to do.
Thing is (as this has been brought up before), the Immobilized damage result in the vehicles section of the BRB states pretty clearly that an immobilized vehicle cannot move for the rest of the game. It doesn't say that they can't move normally, nor does it say that they can't move in the fashion that they were originally intended, it just says they can't move, end of sentence. So RAW wise IMO the issue is resolved there, they can't move if they are immobilized whether they have pretty wings or not. I would be remiss if I did not say that their are some who do feel differently though, but TBH I find their arguments pretty weak.

umm...this is pretty simple...the power makes whatever casts it count as jump infantry...therefore a dread that has it still may not move as it is still immobilized...
I serve my master and do as he wants. He wants the badlands, thus they will be his.

What Bludgen said. You have to be able to move in the first place before you can move as Jump Infantry.
