99% of what you need is all right there in Basic Campaigns.

Even a step can be broken up, should you be so fast as to have a step longer than 1 hex. A character's "one" step might be hex - attack - hex, as well as hex - hex - attack or attack - hex - hex.

If using Technical Grappling, I think you would have to do a Rapid Strike (-6 to both rolls) the 1st attack being a grapple and the 2nd being the "Pickup" technique.

Basic Set had something about 1 turn to pick up something less than your Basic Lift 1-handed, 2 turns to lift twice your baic lift 1-handed, and 3 turns to lift 8x your basic lift 2-handed. I'm not sure how that translates to the Pickup technique though.

Pickup talks about lifting things to "crouching" level, which sounds like less than "overhead" which is what I think the 1/2/4 rules were about, but I'm not sure how much that is exactly for bipeds, much less flying creatures or quadripeds.
