I do not know about miniatures, but lots of people are using it for board wargames.

Vassal, no.

Vacillate over hobby projects, periods, basing, and paint schemes, most definitely.

Yes, I do a good bit of Vassal gaming these days with the guys from the club, since we aren't meeting in person lately. It's not well suited to all games of course, but some of the modules make for very good online games. It takes some experimentation.

I thought we stopped doing vassal about 1,000 years ago.

No. Better methods with roll your own solution.

Yes, occasionally

I don't know what VASSAL is, but probably not.
