Default Fifth ed question - Spyders

Is it possible to both run and create a scarab swarm?

If so, this'll be...very handy.

Well it doesn't count as shooting... so I imagine you could.

The rules state that a tomb spyder that isn't in close combat in the assault phase can expend energy to create a scarab swarm. It doesn't say a tomb spyder can create a swarm instead of assaulting that turn. So I see no problem with running and creating a swarm.

I love the notion of a Tomb Spyder "running" at all. I guess it just...floats faster?
