Default MechTau questions

I'm really interested in tryin a mech tau army. Now just a question (and more later on)

I understand the basics of the whole MechTaut but when this questions concerns the use devilfish, can I unload my guys, shoot and then load them back up ?

for example, move to where i want in MOVEMENT phase, then disembark, then shoot the bloody piss out of anything in SHOOTING phase, then load every1 bak in devilfish and move somewhere else?

You can't move after shooting unless your the suits or eldar tanks or warpspiders so no you have to wit for the enemy's reprisal before you can leave. Sorry.

yep, luckily, being out of assault range, it shouldn't be too bad, and I'd like to take this opportunity to ask a question myself, can you unload after your DF moves 12"?

You go by what the rulebook says. I assume you have access to and have read the rulebook? You can only move in the movement phase, which includes disembarking/embarking etc. And so you have to wait for your next turn before you do that. But yes, you can do that if you want.

Yes. Under Embarking and Disembarking on page 62 of the Rulebook - it only says you can't disembark if the transport moves over 12".
