Since I was running a fairly cinematic campaign, I ignored the Mass Combat rules. Instead, I assumed that how the PCs did against the leaders on the other side was what was critical, in the style of, say, Homeric single combat.

If you wanted to have more detail on the background combat, you could play out a small number of NPC vs. NPC fights, and reduce the two forces in proportion to the outcomes.
