Default Quick question on swooping hawks

Just a quick question here. When swooping hawks deepstrike in and do the template thing does that count as their movement? Theres a rule that says in the movement phase they may go back into reserves to deepstrike in again. Asking this because new guy i played deepstrikes them in and puts them back in reserves in the same turn making them impossible to hit, let alone kill.

Oh my god.

Sorry I'm going to be rude here but could you use search? It's not really your fault but we get about three of these threads every fortnight.


Anyway, short answer, yes, yes he can do that. It's called rubberbanding hawks, it was clarified by a GW Eldar 4th ed. FAQ and it's one of the most overrated tactics available to Eldar.

Long answer, if he does that, just ignore him because thought impossible to kill, that squad is also expensive and will not make it's points back if he just uses it like that.

Hmm, interesting ability, not that devestating unless against tyranids swarm or possibly orks but still.....a unique ability.
