Where are those models from - the apes and soon to be captives?

I almost titled my entry, "Get your hands off me, you damned, dirty ape!" I wasn't 100% sure it would fit the required amount, or that everyone would get the reference... lol lol

The gorilla infantry are from Sergeant Major Miniatures' line:

They have another variant:

And mounted figs:

However, I have to confess I have no idea who makes the mounted gorilla. A friend gave him to me partially painted years ago, and I re-primed him and painted him up for this entry. I searched but couldn't find who makes him...sorry! The captives are Ancient German women from Foundry: AGI/8

Sorry, I went back and modified my post because, well, I realized I forgot to answer your question about them...!  lol lol

The little guy on his knees I'm not sure about, though...I may have picked him up at a flea market somewhere.  ???

Thanks, guys! I've always had a soft spot for Planet of the Apes since my childhood days. I actually entered Eureka's Planet of the Apes figs in a previous LPL. When I saw the Sergeant Major ones I had pick them up. If they're at Historicon this summer, I'll probably get the other poses, too. We don't regularly play post-apocalyptic games, but who knows? One day these gorillas may see the tabletop...
