Well done.  The side torso's are much better.  I like the ability to deal 20 pts of damage at close range. It's worth the heat! Nice!
If at first you don't succeed, make it worth the repairman's time!

Thanks! I left the hand actuators off to keep it under 5M C-Bills.  Hands are one of those things I think ALL 'mechs should have, but even I will compromise for other fluff reasons.

Yeah the paddle hands are "different" & not something I'd start with but it wouldn't be a Dervish without them.

And I do like the Armor matching the 55-ton trio much better this way.
