It's a typo only in the printed codex as far as I'm aware.

The digital version has D6 damage on both pages.

Does the Perfect Ambush stratagem allow a Deliverance Broodsurge unit to move even after it uses the Reckless Manoeuvre stratagem?

I'd love for it to be D6 across the board to be honest, it would make the neophytes pretty scary. So that's two things that GW will FAQ I imagine, this and mental onslaught and I also inagien they'll clarify officially what the ambush markers are supposed to do. They have already but imagine they'll probably re word it

D6 damage mining lasers eh?

 

The 1 shot and weapon being Heavy is still putting me off though, much prefer the D3 shots on the Heavy version for a chance to actually hit something!

 

Going for a pair of Achilles with the Heavy mining laser and sitting them somewhere in midfield with their scout move I think.  Then hoping the opposition are distracted by everything else and don't shoot them. The fact I'm painting all my vehicles bright industrial Yellow might not help there of course.

I think bladed cog neohytes with 2x mining lasers look really usefull. They can ambush or set up underground as needed and will often be able to set up where most needed. I imagine they will be good vs "-1 to hit at 12.01" -armies.

Possibly with the Kellermorph popping up and smoking some poor, unsuspecting character for the hit re-rolls as well? It's interesting that.

 

I'm thinking of giving 2 each (mining lasers that is) to my squads in trucks, who will probably be ignored for other more tempting targets. I'm not sure putting all that effort into making a few mining laser hit more often is worth it though.

I am planning to use the neophyte ambush to shoot with autoguns whatever my acolyte flamers didn't kill.

The mining lasers are one shot yes, but they are priced for it, I think they fill the heavy weapon slot in that unit better than anything else. Being able to threaten armor is nice in an army so squishy.
