I recently acquired a 28mm French Medieval Army from Perry but most of the Lances/Spears for the Mounted Troops were missing.

So does anyone knows where I can get spare Lances/Spears?

Thanks
Michael

Someone turned me on to Fireforge plastic lances recently, which I had never considered. I got mine at thewarstore.com.

North Star metal ones are my favourite.

Perry sells them on their website. Metal ones that don't snap off like plastic.

I have been making them this way very easy to do.

I use blow gun darts cut to size.

Sadly, the Perry metal spears and pikes have been out of production for a year or two now. They were my go-to spear.

Trust me, 45thdiv. – I'd buy them by the truckload if they were still out there.

As you are in the US, try Old Glory. They make four different lengths for their 25/28mm figures:

I've used them before on figures that needed pikes or spears and they work very well. The spear/lance heads may need a little boring out so the shaft can fit, then secure with super glue.

I second Fireforge plastics. They are great.

Footsore Miniatures sells spear packs.

Fireforge plastic are good for pikes – though I never understood why they made 4 sculpts of identical weapons with just longer shafts – instead of just producing the longest and advising about the usage of a knife…

The cheapest pike come with a broom, though you need to check that they are round rather then irregular ovals.

If you want a LANCE; however, with an appropriate grip, you are afaik out of plastic luck. There are several providers of seperate lances, like TAG.
