    Casualties Bin

    One idea that has been floating around is to create a "Casualties Bin" where KIA/dead units could be placed and then viewed. This would have particular application to CGs which almost always require a CVP count. It could also be useful in scenarios where CVPs are part of the victory conditions...

Before trying to do anything about this, I want to be sure I understand the applicable ASL rules properly (or as near as can be accomplished by mere human intelligence!). Please let me know if you think the LOS should...
