Have you ever played a game on vassal? Have you ever put a game on Vassal and if so, could you put a photo of a wargame table on vassal?

I have a few times. I haven't made a Vassal module, so I can't answer your photo question with certainty, but I can't see why not. At it's most basic, it's just an image file.

Lots of good info here, it seems:

I use Cyberboard, when I upgrade my computer, I will try Vassal.

I have nothing but the highest compliments for Cyberboard though!

You could use a photo of a table for the map, but any oblique angles would get pretty confusing. Take a look at the WH40K and Napoleon's Triumph modules for alternatives. You might try photographing individual terrain pieces from as high above as possible and then placing them individually.

Yes, tried it. Could never get into it; the feel of it was simply off for me.
