With both expansions, would it be possible to have a six player game?
Any thoughts on how set-up would work?

Technically it's possible now. You could even do two regiments per player while still using one core set.

As for how it'd work, I'm pretty sure you'd want to have it use a special scenario. Maybe make the board a little bigger as well. You'd want to make the deployment zones form a hexagon (which could be done by forcing two players on opposite ends of the table to put their zones in the center adn then creating a dead -no deployment zone- area in the center of the other two sides and forcing the other four players to put their deployment zones close to those.

There are several options for what the specifications for the special scenario would be. You could just do a standard FFA of course. Some alternatives:
King of the Hill: Each player gets 1 point at the end of the round for each disk overlapping the tower which was placed in the center. Alternatively with that many players in order to keep the chaos down a little you could just evenly space 4 terrain pieces and have each of them be a 'hill' that works like that.
Teams: All the Order players vs all the destruction players would be easiest. Maybe for points have it so that each team has 2 or 3 objective cards which combined determine how points are counted.
Crossfire: Each player has one other player they must eliminate. At the end of the game every player whose target was eliminated before they were wins (if both players are taken out at the same time it's considered to be a draw status).
