Whoops. I forgot to add in the points that you could never have more points
in armies than Cities or Depots to supply them all, eg.- if you had 4 x 500
point armies in the 40K situation but only had 3 depots, then you had to
lose one of the armies in the supply turn. Also, an army couldn't be
supplied if it could not draw a clear line through friendly territories to a
friendly depot and would be destroyed in a supply turn if it had no supply line.

If anyone wants more details, I'll be happy to give them, but that's really
of them I think. This could be easily applied to any game system.
