Great project!  :D

I think my little sister used to have some Smufl houses in the 1980s, they looked exactly like those piggy-bank versions. They might still be around somewhere... ??? :D

Not a "real" update, but I couldn't resist making a little ominous prologue using the painted figures and houses:

Also added this project to a new blog, where I go into a little bit more detail about the different aspects.

Wow this looks like a great project!  8) I love Smurf battles. Back in the late 80's and early 90's my friend and I used to tour the scifi conventions in the UK doing Smurf Wars battles with the toys from the petrol stations. We had loads of mushroom houses and black Smurfs Gnapping all over the shop. It was great fun! Pity it was before the age of photoing everything with a mobile.

If you ever end up doing lots of castings of these chaps I am SO up for getting some if your are willing. The chance to really dive back in to this too much to resist. I normally make it to Crisis, but can't make it this year.

PM me if needed as it's a serious request  :D

Many thanks.

Adrian.

Thanks for the love. I have some more metal castings here that I need to find to take some pictures of.

No new paintjobs but here are some picturesof mastercastings of some more smurf villager bit.

Smurf heads.
The top row are a sad smurf, a surprised smurf, a laughing smurf and a Papa Smurf character head.
The bottom row are shouting smurfs. These should work well as "good" fighting smurfs too (as in opposed to "evil" grey or black/purple smurfs, which will get more angry expressions).



The Smurfette. One body, five headvariants (you can tell the sculptor has a soft spot for her). From left to right, they are smiling, sad, angry (grey Smurfette), laughing and surprised/shouting.



Then a Jokey Smurf or Greedy Smurf body with accessories (jack in the box, packed present or smurf cake). The head is the laughing head from higher up, just loosely stuck on for the picture.



Some assorted bits and weapons to be used with other Smurf figures:

What an amusing and smurftastic project.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.
