Fixed core + random supports is a good way of doing it.

POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Slingshot magazine, Richard Taylor makes the case for dicing to determine which of your army units are available for a particular battle.
This would provide a better reflection of reality, in that the vagaries of campaigning meant that not all of a general's units would be available for every battle (perhaps being detached for garrison or special duties), and also requires players to think on their feet and make the best of a situation not entirely of their own choosing.
What do you think?
