Just some small progress here:
I still have not stripped the paint from the fellow on the left, but the others are getting a little attention, including the Boschenburg troops in the background (although it is hard to tell).
And, a comparison pic. The basket on the right is another from Darkson Designs, Beast of the Apocalypse. I had originally thought that this miniature would work as a gudgeon, but I have reconsidered that and it will now join the legion of monsters while I search for a better construct. Please note the the two baskets in the above pic are not nearly done; hopefully they will look better when they are finished.
