That said, that red has more pieces suggests it is probably white's 
move, and in that case white is guaranteed to get a king. So it will be 
7 pieces (with one king) vs 8 pieces, which doesn't sound like a 
terribly bad position for white to be in.

I think it's rather hilarious that I've distracted myself with this 
miniature. I really do have shitloads of other work to be doing. :P
