Back in '08 we played a couple of games of VWQ and Clarence was kind enough to comment on them (as Anonymous
). However, not having any ECW troops, we used some earlier Pike & Shot armies that I had lying around unbased . . . so I based them for VWQ and we fought two battles.
The first was a "civil war" battle from the past of Murdock's fictional Imagi-Nation (Mieczyslaw). However, at his insistence, we misplayed the rules in that he felt that opponents MUST get to shoot back when fired upon.
I didn't agree . . . and the second game (against Pete) played much better when we played it as written. This second game, by the way was nominally a battle between Pete's Duchy of the North and my vile invading Stagonians.
As mentioned, Clarence's comments (as Anonymous
) do to my mind help clarify some of the rules. So here are links to my blog accounts of these battles (click on photos for larger images

Murdock (from battle #1) took lots of photos and wrote his account of the battle on his blog. The specific link is below (and, again, click on photo thumbs for larger photos):

I apologize for not having ECW troops, but I think that I made some reasonable substitutions . . . and I know that we had fun.
