These guys played with the battles exported to Sourge of War: Waterloo:

Too bad they only played 4 turns and I can't find subsequent reports. I wish someone could do something like Field of War: Empires with separate combat resolution. I prefer turn based battles.

That looks like it must have been a lot of work, I assume SOW handles user created battles?

I suppose so but I don't own SoWW.

Yes, correct. I have SOWWL and I'm a NSD tester. In sow you can create ad hoc scenarios starting from a master OOB; the difference are that sow goes from Army to battalion level (with the soldiers number for each battalion and single cannon in a battery) whilst COTD stops at brigade level with each strenght unit representing 500 men.

So the problem is how to output an OOB that sow can read (is a csv file) then play the battle and revert that file into COTD format taking in account also fatigue and morale.

I think this is a HUGE work if not tecnichally impossible to achieve

Deleted. CotD has a Miniatures option for off-game resolution.
