Default Shining Spears Hit and Run with Character

If a Shining Spear squad charges with an autarch on a jetbike, which I like the sound of having 13 S6 Power Weapon Attacks and 3 S8 Power Weapon Attacks, and dont get the job done, would the whole squad (autarch inclusive) be able to duck out or just the squad, or none at all.

If not at all, Could the autarch and squad split up in movement phase and charge in seperately doing the same damage and then the squad ducks out, while the autarch holds them in combat.

Comments and feedback please.

the autarch cannont use hit and run, and neither can the squad while hes with them so no he cannont use hit and run, although you could indeed assault with the autarch and spears as seperate squads, then duck out with the spears afterwards. i would recommend that you dont hit and run after your assault phase is over. wait until the enemys turn and then hit and run after their assault phase. i know from bitter experience that it's often fatal to the poor bikers if you leave early...

Actually the Autarch can benefit from hit and run. Whilst the rulebook says he can't, the Eldar Codex says that an Autarch can always benefit from exarch powers except for Infiltrate.

Correct


Or else laser lance will seem to be a bit of a subpar investment.

Can someone please get me a page reference where it says that an autarch can benefit from Exarch powers.
Cheers
