If the players represent regional commanders for their own "Race" and
they have a home outpost base but are getting reinforcements from their
own backers then you could introduce other dimensions into the
reinforcement pool. maybe a sucessful commander gets less reinforcements
because High Command don't think they need them or don't want a too
popular commander having direct control of too much of the warmachine.
On the other hand a player that has been defeated heavly and has their
home base in danger of falling may get extra reinforcements to represent
High Commands concern about losing their presence in the area.
