Well, basically, I went for the "Borg approach" (from Star Trek).  The party
found a way to shut them down (a complicated spell, 10th level, the Avangion
cast it, yes, Athas did have a few escapees).  And no, I didn't think to use
any other clockwork beasts (unless you count the ones from the 2nd MC
annual, which I don't).  The 'Lost ones' (in my campaign anyway) are the
Juna from the books, or at least an offshoot.
