I have just built a Victrix Roman army and am looking for metal pike armed figures with a good size match. Victrix are one of the larger 28mm height ranges. They do Successor pike but I am not keen on the idea of long thin plastic pikes. A metal open handed range would be nice that will not be dwarfed by Victrix. In other periods I have seen Crusader who might be on the small side and Newline who need a bit of cleaning up to make good.

Old Glory 25's has 30 steel shaft pikes with separate cast tips, PSJ-01. Don't know how long they are, maybe someone can tell you how long they are?

Have you looked at Aventine? They match up well with Victrix.

Do you want painted or unpainted? I have some Foundry but they are not on the large side.

Aventine are a good match.

100mm metal pikes I have seen before, but not longer. Does North Star or Perry Bros not have them?

Another vote for Aventine

I think he is looking for the guy to wield the pike not the pike itself. The title is a bit misleading.

The old Vendel Greek line is very nice and very hefty. I'm not sure if it is in production under some other name today.

Thanks, I am now leaning towards Aventine

So you built a plastic army and are now looking for metal.

Sounds familiar.
