I didn't get a huge amount of feedback for them, so I'm not too confident of their utility, but I made two sets of house-rules to help bridge the gap between tactical combat and Mass Combat. You can see if it looks useful here.

Note that there's no way it's combat normalized to the tactical scale--I didn't intend it to be--but if I did it right it should help nudge you towards summing large, unwieldy fights quickly.
