We have been thinking for a long time about the tiresome topic of spears in 28mm miniatures. There are different approaches with different advantages and disadvantages:
- Cast pewter spears – look realistic, but are often clunky and bend easily.
- Steel spears with hammered and ground spearheads – are stable, but the spearhead is not very realistic and rather unsightly, and they regularly get painfully stuck in the fingers.
- Plastic spears – are realistically designed, but break very easily or are unrealistically thick.
Our approach combines the advantages of an attractive realistic design of a cast white metal spearhead with the durability of an iron pin spear shaft.
Included are 12 spears
- 12 spearheads with 6 different designs (randomly selected from the 6 designs)
- 4 x approx. 9 cm black iron pins with a diameter of 1mm
- Cut spear shafts to the desired length. We recommend using a side cutter.
- File the ends of the spear shafts smooth.
- Using a 1mm drill or cutter, drill the already existing hollows at the spear tips a little deeper.
- Glue the spears together with super glue.
- Using a file, file the connection between the spear tip and the spear shaft a little slimmer if desired.
On the second picture are some examples where the spears are used.
