Does a model benefit from the shield wall ARM bonus if my gun mages hit it with thunderbolt and push it out of b2b? As I understand it, the push moves the model out of b2b before the damage is calculated therefore removing the ARM bonus when damage is calculated.

I found this thread here (https://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?17043-Gun-Mages-Thunderbolt&highlight=thunderbolt+shield), but was unsure if the answer was official or not. Thank you for the help.

You understand it correctly.

Yes, abilities that trigger on a hit are resolved before damage (see the appendix on timing, Prime p.245).
