Can you use backswing on an influence attack if it is part of the weapons abilities?

Backswing is a star action I believe, and star actions take up "initial attacks." Special attacks can only be done during someone' activation where they have initial attacks to give up, not out of turn with influence or otherwise.

Back swing is a star attack, and no you cannot use it when you influence.

EDIT: For your viewing pleasure.

Last sentence on pg.36 of primal.
Special attacks can be made only during a model's activation.
