Sort of. A strategy game where, depending on the scale your control takes, you can go up from a single trooper (the game would play like an FPS then) to controlling whole armies, galaxy scale. The main idea would be to have all the units fully customizable with a lot of as realistic representations of the changes as possible (ie for recruiting infantry, you can set a minimum statistic requirement, but this decreases the number of troops you can recruit etc). Also designing unique vehicle types from customizable segments.

I've also thought about a game like that. Partially, it already exists, there's a game called Men of War out right now that does the variance-of-scale thing you referred to, where each soldier has their own level of ability and inventories. And its quite good at shifting from the micro to macro levels of control. The recruitment aspect would be a cool addition. Maybe the game could have a sort of simulation-conquest aspect? You take your army across a little world, recruiting and equipping your troops, then battling for control against the myriad armies that control it?
