I've blu-tac'ed coloured paper (Post-it Notes could work too) under the platoons to help the Remote Player identify them and made some super-size gaming tokens for the same reason. Obviously, I do all the movement and measuring for them, so I'm pretty busy jumping around the table but the feedback I've had indicates you can have a reasonable gaming experience.
For the tech savy out there, I'm using Yi 720p & 1080p cameras, with their App and PC client software and my mobile Phone using a WhatApps video call (don’t forget your charger). As added bonus, I can now play some of my old gaming friends who had moved away.
So far, I've played 4 games this week !
