Could someone clarify how to use the Wolf Scouts' Operate Behind Enemy Lines special rule? It says to use the reserve rules, but how do you decide which part of the other players table edge do they enter on? Can they enter wherever they like once they roll to come in from reserves?
they come in from edge opposite of yours. where on that edge is up to you
And are the scouts allowed to do anything in the turn that they deploy?
Read up on the reserves rules a bit. Coming in from reserves means you will be moving from the table edge. You can move and fire and assault.
It's the same as the rules for outflank (p.94), with the difference being instead of coming in from the sides of the table, you come in from the rear (your opponent's deployment edge).
At the beginning of each turn, you roll on the reserves table to see if they come in. If they do, then you can move, shoot and assault as normal.
The unit operates just as the above posters have said. The SW scouts are a rightly feared unit with the ability to pack some serious firepower, as well as reasonable combat ability (add a power sword or two for some fun!) and good access to nasty stuff like meltabombs. I never field my SW without a unit of them.
