A nice fellow from the space marine list is editing the lists for me, the new format is very sleek as he is a technical writer. All these poorly worded rules and typos and mistakes have to this date been all corrected.

Once all the lists have been edited then I'll replace the ones in the vault.

The way I understand it is that only units you "improve" with Mekboy
shootaz are subject to being unreliable. The way it works I believe is
that you pick the units you want the Mekboys to "upgrade". Then for each
unit you roll on the modification table. This is the improvement that
units gets for the entire battle. But if the "improved" unit rolls a
critical failure (a 1 to hit I believe), then you roll on the malfunction

Any wording errors will have come from the fact that in his original draft,
Peter had ALL Ork units subject to the Improvements and Malfucntions roll
(on a 10 to hit they would get an improvement for the turn, if they rolled
a 1 to hit they suffered a malfunction). This resulted in far too much
rolling so Peter decided to allow Mekboy units to modify some Orks for the
better, but the tradeoff was that they could malfunction. Much better IMO.
 I guess that Peter will need to re-write the Mekboy tweaking rules a
little better.
