Just what makes a "Sorcerous Army"? 

As we've seen in the books, most Dragaeran all armies are "convential" 
with a Sorcerer's Corps to supplement the Teckla/Dragon/Dzur infantry 

Perhaps during an Athyra reign, the Sorcerer's Corps would be larger and 
more sophisticated, but I doubt there is ever a time when conventional 
forces disappear entirely.
