As per my own Terms of Reference I have ignored the slavery of scale and gone for the Zvezda option for the brigade transports. Thus one 15mm scale Matador truck model is capable of shifting three battalions. I wanted a slick way of representing the upload of troops so I've gone for Markers: a single infantry figure with a number written on the steel paper base. This Marker will be placed upon a magnetic square on the back of each Matador when the Brigade goes Mobile, Retreat or Transit. The toy troops will be removed from the board and then replaced when the time to de-bus arrives: probably three buses at once; just like in real life.
There are three 'jokes' in today's blogplop which, probably, only Brits will get. For that I apologise. For using a mix of scales to achieve my objective I do not ;-)
