Scouts and Orders

Thanks again for all the help with my last question. I’m afraid I have another about scouts. I don’t know how they use their initiative actions.

When their group is activated, do scouts act separately from the rest of the group (the parent group) while they are within the command radius of the group’s big man? I.e., the parent part of the group can be ordered to take move with one initiative and hold their fire with their second initiative, while the group’s scout uses both of their initiatives to spot a hidden unit? This would seem to allow the scout to reveal targets for their parent group to fire upon?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Take this with a pinch of salt as I don't own the rulebook yet but I get the impression they behave like a separate team when detached and presumably they're supposed to operate ahead of the big man to reveal blinds.

I would imagine that they need to be in command range to do anything in that case.
