|Jam123456||i feel this needs a question to GW faq's. will look on their web page to see where to send it. If we have mixed ideas of the rules then other must too and i would like to get a proper rule that i know is correct because however much i would like to play the rules to my advantage ( i like a good argument and informed debate) i would not like to be seen as cheating or have others think i'm taking advantage in any way. and the rules should set a level playing field.|

i would agree with mags and tim/steve on this.
pivot isn't movement so i think it probably needs a FAQ update to clarify for sure however i read it as if the unit disembarks from the vehicle after it has moved you can't flat out.
If it didn't move or it only pivoted before disembarkation in can still flat out. the disembarking is movement by the unit in the transport not the transport.
still not worth taking star engines on eldar.

You can turbo boost if you pivot before disembarking. The rule on P71 means that at the end of the moving phase you count as being stationary through the movement phase if you only pivot.... so by the time you turbo boost you "didn't" move before disembarking. As this kicks in at the end of the movement phase that doesn't allow you to do a standard move after disembark.
Of course there is the counter argument that you haven't "only" pivoted as you've also disembarked a unit... to me that's an action for the unit not the transport but if someone wants to split hairs and argue there's not a lot I can see to prove it one way or other.

i look at it this way, like chess once you taken your hand off the piece that's it finished.

From the rules i think if the unit disembarks from the vehicle after it has moved you can't flat out.
If it didn't move or it only pivoted in can still flat out.

|Jam123456||ok well thats as i thought shame as eldar have exit at rear but never mind. sure i can work out tactics with two jumping over each other and leap frogging.|

|Suijin||The vehicle could flat out move in the shooting phase though.|

You can't pivot, disembark then move.
A pivot is clearly a move and the P79 rules say you can't move any further if you move before disembarking troops. The P71 rule isn't saying that pivotting does not count as a move, its saying that its ignored if the only move you have made is a pivot (ie pivoting doesn't detract from shooting).
