So as not to have to redo the map again, or have to do a build edit
(would not recommend for vassal novices), instead take your 2nd created
version with the corrected units, unzip it and grab the correct images
you need and replace them as needed in your original module creation by
using the module editor. 

Just go to the piece with the incorrect image, double click the
image/basic piece/layer/whatever and replace with the correct one.

That would probably be a lot less work unless we are talking 50+ messed
up counters, less than 30 or so though this would be a lot quicker and
easiest solution
