Are the pieces still usable?
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

I use break fluid to strip my models. The super glue will break down and they will come apart but don't worry the plastic suffers no dmg from the break fluid.
A toothbrush isn't going to get the paint off efficently. On metal models use a small wire brush, you don't have to scrub super hard but you need the stifness of the wire to grab the paint. Toothbrush just doesn't cut it.
On plastic you can use the wire brush but be real carefull if you scrub too hard you'll scratch up the plastic.
You'll also notice paint that likes to stick in the small cracks.. get yourself some toothpicks or a paperclip to pick that crap out.
I left some models in that breakfluid for a good 5 months one time. They were metal but the bases are plastic and suffered no dmg.
There is a cleaning fluid called SIMPLE GREEN, that I use. It eats paint but NOT plastic.
I highly recommend it.

I use GOOF OFF for my metal minis. Soak them for about 20 minutes and use a toothbrush. It doesn't destroy the super glue and gets all the paint off.
