Not that it matters now in 5th, since you have to declare how the unit is entering from Reserves, but.........

Doesn't matter what order you rolled for the units in, if the warriors (held in Reserve using the special Warrior/Monolith Reserve rule) and monolith became available in the same turn, you were required to bring the warriors in through the newly arrived monolith.

And that disembarking from a stationary vehicle bit is gone as well, might want to check the 5th ed FAQ........... If either Monolith or unit moved prior to teleport, the teleporting unit cannot move after teleporting.

the idea behind preventing chain teleporting is simply this. immagine a squad of 20 warriors w lord and staff of light. your opponent deep strikes 3 monoliths 1 close to his lines 1 in the middle and 1 next to your commander. teleport 3 times and bam. 40 shots to him +3 from the lord. simply if chain tepeport was allowed the monolith bould be overpowered insanely. no to mention the fact that you could keep re rolling the wbb rolls if it was allowed.

Never doubt the incompetence of your commisar.

Ok I get it now. I was reading the chain teleportation section as you were only allowed one teleport per turn for the whole army. I guess I'm just a dork and never thought that you could use different methods for different units.

So thanks to everyone for the quick responses you all have helped out allot.
