[Epic] initiative idea...

here's how initiative is done in Planetstorm, it's not a great system, but
it does stagger the movement, and gives little to no control over which
unit activates in which order...

group you figures into "teams". each team will move together and will get
initiative at the same time. perhaps each card, or each platoon would be
its own "team"

give each team a playing card from a standard deck. count down from king
to ace. when your card comes up, you have the option to activate. if you
reach ace, and there are still unactivated units, count UP from ace to
king. this time, you MUST activate.

in planetstorm, you move and fire when you activate... that might make the
system work a little better as well... (IMHO)
