Fire then move up to 6"
Fire then move D3"-D6"

Move then snap fire
Move up to D3"-D6" then fire normally
Move up to 6" then fire normally

There might be rules that allow you to snap fire at higher or normal BS.
It might be, but I think I know why the current rumour is bothering me. In the White Dwarf when Phil Kelly talks about the rule ("This month in the Design Studio", page with the Wraithlord) here's what he says:

Quote:
There is also a new special rule for the Eldar - Battle Focus. When an Eldar dedicates themselves to something they put every ounce of their being into it, perfecting it until they become as good as they can be. This is why Fire Dragons are the ultimate tank hunters in Warhammer 40,000 and Howling Banshees are probably the fastest, most-feared combat troops around. While Battle Focus is an excellent new aspect to their gameplay, and a great way to out out and outmanoeuvre your opponent, never forget that your warriors are fragile and that one wrong move can lead to their deaths. The Eldar fight carefully and cautiously, working in harmony with each other to create a symphony of destruction that is nigh-unstoppable. Play the wrong tune, however, and your battle will become very difficult indeed.
Outside of using one of the best phrases ever (symphony of destruction), and talking up the Eldar way of battle a bit, I found it interest the way he talked about Battle Focus. He describes it as if it was related to being an aspect and it being why the aspects are so good at their aspects.

A run and shoot move for everyone doesn't really fit that. I have a feeling the when we read these entries we might see "Battle Focus: *Verb/Noun/Kitten*" followed by that unit's specific rule.


EDIT:

GW's release teaser vid is out:

That's a pretty epic song in the trailer. And the trailer really makes the models shine. And forgive me for saying I love the X-wing shape of the Crimson Hunter.

I don't suppose there has been any rumblings on the posablity of legs of the Wraithknight kit? The stock images don't seem to be as exciting as the Riptide ones were and sprue wise it only seems to be showing the attachments for the arms.

From little I gathered from GW's official statements the legs should be as posable as the ones on the Riptide. Now if that's true is something we'll have to wait and see on.

I'll be interested to see, the Tau design allows for that multiposing a lot easier I feel than the Eldar design. Those legs and the torso don't look to be most posable of things, although that may be due to their size.

The sprues make it look like each section of the legs are separate and it looks like the legs connect to the hip by a ball and socket joint so they should be about as possable as a revenant

The five man DA box and the new wraithkits represent a logical step in the development of the Eldar when you think of it.

Their numbers are dwindling and so their aspect warriors becoming fewer and fewer. The civil population is more often called into combat as well as their deceased in form of wraithconstructs. Even outcast heroes return in these desperate times.
