Can someone recommend a US company who carries metal/wire spears for 28mm SAGA figures?

These are really good…


Maybe you can find a US supplier but otherwise I know that Bad Squiddo Games ships to USA and I wouldn't expect postage to be too extreme for such a small weight.

Brigade Games carries them.


also in 50mm

Old Glory sells spears of various lengths.

I gave up trying to glue the separate spearheads onto the shafts years ago and just paint the tip metallic. Yes, I'm that feeble.

I make mine using the tips in this video. I went to the Dollar Store and found the florist wire. You do need a pair of pliers that have smooth faces on them. I can make up a bunch of spears, pikes or whatever I need in a short time.

I buy these 100 at a time. 2 and 1/8 inches long. Never got a bad one! Takes them about 5 days to arrive. Perfect!

North Star wire spears, 100mm with Leaf head or point, are available from On Military Matters. These are the absolute best spears that you can buy. Just clip them to the desired length and you are good to go.

Thanks boys! My husband will play Vikings, I will play Normans.

We have the old SAGA book and Cresent and the cross. Is the new SAGA any different?

Footsore USA is my go-to. Their spears are great, in both 50mm and 100mm, and their models are incredible as well.

Second vote for North star, just be careful how you pick your figures up though, they will draw blood!
