Hmmm... very interesting. Skill challenges would be a great mechanic, perhaps to add bonuses to some sort of core role based on armies, etc.

Do you happen to have any in-game references of how the Mass Combat system plays out? I see the rules, but I'm attempting to get a feeling of their use.
What types of effect does it have on the players? How fast of a resolution are you looking for? How much influence do you want the PC's to wield, especially for those in the front lines, commanders, and generals.

I don't have DnD Insider, but I do subscribe to the RSS feed. There is a new article that sounds like it may be what is being looked for here. The intro touts it as filling in gaps on running large scale warfare via skill challenges.
