Not actually a lot of "real armies" histiorcally or even fictionally to use as a model. I'd want the riders of rohan on my side but they don't count as a "real" army.

So no, I'm not sure that even a magic-using army will have many more than 3 mages (a dozen?) and I'm fairly certain they won't each have much more than a handful of spells. Battle-mage is a crappy job for a well-developed mage and there won't be many takers for it.
