A casual night fixing up some miniatures from the eBay bundle. Cleaned up the Ring Wraith and King of the Dead, then hacked their tabs off and pinned to corks, easy. The elves are cemented into their bases and their feet are too delicate to consider razor sawing them off so I had to carefully lay some Vallejo Earth Texture all over after filling the slotta holes with green stuff. Scraped off their most prominent mould lines with a scalpel, that's enough for them.
The statue was the most interesting. Glued him to a spare base after quickly sanding off the worst of the mould lines and edges created from the two halves not fitting together flush. Then padded out his base with some green stuff, cutting some larger stone slabs to match those moulded into the statue and some more Vallejo Earth Texture to break it up a bit.
Should be a decent rescue once they're primed. And there are still a handful of metal characters in the box to rescue and repair. Not bad at all for less than £10 delivered when we were going to order a Finecast King of the Dead from the GW site which is £8.70 on it's own.
