Is it feasible to fight battles, using the Saga rules, by using a typical warband for each flank and the center (and perhaps a reserve?)

Has anybody tried this?

I suggested a large game like this, based on the Medieval concept or organizing an army into three "Battles." That concept may be post Dark Age (the Saga period). My idea was for the center to have either four or six points, while the right and left each had four. Since the center was usually commanded by the leader of the army, he could give one of his Saga die to one or both of the flanks each turn. That's about as far as I got with the concept before I wandered off to do something else. I never tried out a game based on this idea, in part because we were lucky to get four players.

Interesting idea. I will likely have even fewer players; in all probability I'll have to try it solo.

I also posted on LAF and received this response:

We've tried a 4- player (2 vs. 2) game using the "Fantastic Saga" rules. This worked pretty well; players alternated by side, and some of the magic powers were global, while some were directed at only one of the opponents.
