I got an old witch. Figure i might as well use her.
the wife is not gonna let no more orders happen for a bit, so
using the list of war jacks below what would be a good jack for her
in my 35 pt army.?
decimator (cant seem to hit the broad side of a barn with this thing)
yea i know not a real quality selection but i am kind of stumped.
i am running a min unit of Assault Kommandos with gorman + widowmakers.
so if that is any help.

Destroyer, Kodiak, Spriggan, Torch are all good selections.
Augry means that forests arent safe to hide behind for the purposes of charging and the kodiak having pathfinder on it naturally means that you can get it to go anywhere you want and that no one is safe from it. Its also focus efficiant which helps.
The destroyers is good since you you can park it in a forest and have it pump shots without having to worry about LOS
The spriggan and Torch are both good as melee beat sticks, esp when combined with Weald Secrets which means that like with a Kodiak they can go anywhere. Torch is also good because he can pop down a cloud for the OW to hide in

I'd say Spriggan would be your best bet, since she wants something that hits like a truck. She has plenty of ways to shred infantry and tarpits, so i think the Spriggan would work out very well. Gallows a leading heavy 'jack out, impale its cortex on the lance etc etc

The marauder can also shine really well with the Old Witch Its a beautiful thing to watch your opponets expression as their previously safe piece is dragged into range for a massive pow20 slam into a wall or jack

I'd add the decimator to that list. OW needs jacks that can beat up on other jacks, and the decimator is certaintly built for this. Keep it very close to OW firing shots and if a heavy comes near WS on it and have it charge with plenty focus for some extra attacks.

Try to get Behemoth if you can. Spriggan is very good, but only if you have a lot of shooting - there isn't much sense in Targeting Flare without them.
But if you have to choose only from the jacks you have now, I'd choose Kodiak and Decimator. Why? Because Kodiak with both Augury and Pathfinder is absolutely insane in forests, and it can double-throw enemy heavy close to Decimator. You really want something shooty with Augury, and Decimator isn't that bad. At least, it can do something both in melee and at range.

I have been playing Old Witch for a little while, and I like the Kodiak. Just make sure to bring along more 'jack killing power, either another 'jack of your own or the Great Bears are pretty good.

Spriggan is very good, but only if you have a lot of shooting - there isn't much sense in Targeting Flare without them.
Spriggan is a lot more than two flares for 10 points. For starters, it has reach. As the Old witch has no way to speed up her jacks, that 1.5 extra inches of threat range can mean a lot. POW 18 is pretty good, Bulldoze is helpful in scenario play and that extra point of armor is fun, too.
And as the OP said he'd be using widowmakers, those flares aren't going to waste either if the opponent brings stealth.
That said, I never leave home without a Destroyer. With Augury, the opponent can run but he can't hide.
