To summarize vaguely, Crackaces, with only the diamonds displayed, you don't know for sure why a supply path might end. It could be the cumulative effects of the terrain or it could be from an unspotted enemy force. With numbers, if you see 95, 90, 85, 0 in 4 hexes of a path, you can likely determine there be bad guys.
