Adds an additional level of complication to the game, though -- something of a surprise coming from you, who usually want to reduce the number of die rolling that is done. Plus, it adds an increasing element of luck to the game -- if I tend to roll dice unluckily, it will just take longer to un-Disrupt my troops. Thus, in a game of this scale, I'd rather see them all Disrupt in the same timeframe.

Besides, what you are talking about IS already part of the game, anyway -- Reinforcements. If the Soandso Lancers have been _eliminated_, but then I call them as Reinforcements a couple of turns (= days) later, then perhaps they were simply so scattered that it took a few extra turns for them to reform.
