My local wargaming friend squirreled into the idea of modern combat, got some Canadians all painted up (including a tank) then promptly squirreled out again and sold them. During this phase, I picked up some 28mm Eureka Mujadeen and got them all painted. I sold them on Bartertown eventually, as I couldn't see myself gaming with them ever. :-)
They are however, some of the first pics I took with my new Macromats setup I got on Kickstarter.
