Sorry if this is the wrong board, or just a silly question, but I was wondering:
Can you disembark from a Land Raider as well as cast The Summoning? Both say they can be used at the beginning of the units movement phase, but I'm not sure whether it would still be considered "the beginning of your movement phase" AFTER you disembark.
I dont think you can but you will be able to cast summoning from within the LR using its hull has the measuring point. Summoning isnt a shooting attack so you don't need a fire point.

Summoning question, if a landraider reedeemer (or any vehicle) is imobilized can it still be summoned by a Librarian? If so thats kinda broken... amazing but broken. now since Libraians are not Unique you can play LR pong and bounce it around the board everyturn to where it is needed.
I would have to say no, it can't. The rule for immobilised vehicles states that the vehicle may no longer move for the rest of the game. For the Summoning to work on a vehicle, the vehicle in question has to have the Warp Stabilisation Field upgrade. The WSF rules say that if a vehicle "moves in this way" (ie is Summoned by the Librarian) it counts as having moved flat out. 'Counting as' doing something is tantamount to 'actually' doing something, and if the vehicle is immobilised then I believe that it would be wrong to Summon it because you're effectively making it perform a "counts as" move, which it can't do.
Probably another one for the ever-growing GK FAQ!
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
it "counts as" moving flat out, but in reality its deepstriking. in the brb immobilized means a track is broken or somthing to make it stop moving. Since you cant move after deep striking why wouldnt you throw a LR across the board?
Plz GW FAQ!!!
I'd so no -its pretty clear that the libby is just opening a path for them and they are moving themselves through it.
Maybe the portal 2 commercial is provoking this but i envisioned a portal under said vehicle and another in the sky above the libby. but i guess since its going thru the warp maybe more of a wormhole...
I would say yes it can. Drop pods are immobile vehicles and they can deepstrike and count as moving flat out when they do so. Obviously a drop pod has engins to get it to the table from orbit but that is represented by the deepstrike rule. Since Summoning grants the tank deepstrike for that turn it can arrive. Other imobile vehicles can deepstrike such as tau weapon platforms or tarantular automatic gun platforms.
If imobile vehicles were not allowed to be summoned then I would have expected the summoning or warp stabalisation field rule to prohibit imobalised vehicles from doing so.

P. 95 of the BRB: Vehicles count as moving at Cruising speed after deep striking.
Passengers may disembark from a transport vehicle.
The summoning forces a model to move (and arrive) via deep strike.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

However, the controversial question here is: is it destroyed by such a move? It is moving flat-out and it is immobilised. Hmmmm...maybe one for the Rules Help forum.
My question is, if you move flat-out and are immobilised, you should be wrecked. But does that still apply if you were already immobilised before "moving flat-out"?
