Perhaps in Pawnless vs. Pawnful original Good array, one side has forced win.  That is what Muller demonstrates for Maharaja and the Sepoys: http://www.chessvariants.org/index/displaycomment.php?commentid=24978.  
M&S is similar in being Chess Diferent Armies like P v. Pawnful.  My conjecture elsewhere is that Maharaja should win on 10x10 against same 16 aligned Grand Chess-style, because the Muller conditions cannot be met on the larger board.

In the several games played of Pawnless vs. Pawnful, was there any Queen promotion by the Queenless side? The pieces are always going to win, but it still has to be proved.

http://www.chessvariants.org/unequal.dir/dunsany.html, 32 Pawns should win not only because of 32-31, also because of the board advantage.  In other words, again expand it to 10x10 100 squares and the pieces+8 probably win.
