Where to find shields and spears?

Sun Apr 26, 2015 8:49 pm

I'm planning on converting Grim Hammers into the Iron Hills Dwarves. I was wondering if anyone knew where to find spears and kite shields that would be on the correct scale?

Not sure about suitable shields, but Warlord Games sells brass wire spears in several different lenghts one of which should work for you.

For kite shields check out Gripping Beast - they have a huge variety of white metal weapons/shields available in small lots (that's where I think I got mine)

For metal wire spears I belive the Perry Miniature site has wire spears with pressed speartips- both short spike and long blade tip. For plastic spears you should be able to find samari/ashirigau and greek/amazon spears on the Wargames Factory website.
