As a result, mules were conscripted into service to transport materiel. In this case, I am going to use this as a Jump Off Point for Chain of Command.
The soldier is Perry Miniatures, and the mule is from a Brigade Games mountain gun team.

I've made a larger base to represent the jump off point, but the figures are just blue-tacked on so that I can use them for other purposes if need be.
Another marker that can serve as a JOP comes from a Woodbine Design Company character set, a pile of empty tins!
All in all, the collection of JOPs is growing, at least for the Canadians. I need to redress the balance to provide more German-themed JOPs.
