I wish you luck in hitting the North Wind.  Its rocking a +4 movement modifier whenever it walks or jumps max hexes.  It can jump seven every round without any heat burden.  My goal is for it to spend time going after the multiplier objectives while the Acheron (Greek Underworld river of pain) brings the hurt on other Mechs and goes for King of the Hill.  Depending upon the situation, it can also fight pretty well, with four ER Small Lasers going right into the back of a slow enemy.  It is also supporting the communications equipment, bringing its tonnage to three, meaning +1 to Initiative rolls.

I’m looking forward to trying this out.
