Something I've toyed with in the back of my mind but haven't
actually implemented in practice is to use an unoccupied corner
of the table to have the mini who just moved off maneuver around
there until they can get back on. Thus:

   |		  |
   | A		  |    'B' is the general area where the battle
   |		  |    is taking place
   |		  |    'C' is the spot on the table where the mini
   |		  |    moved off
   |	     B	  |    'A' is an unused section of the table where
   |	 B	  |    the mini which just was at 'C' may maneuver
   |   B	 C|    until it 'leaves' that part of the table and
   |  B      B	  |    rejoins the battle at 'B'.
   |		  |
   |		  |
   |		  |

Dunno. Was just an idea I've toyed with intellectually, but never put
