28 MM Pikemen Haft Question

Hey -

Figured this crowd would have a better idea. I'll be working on about 80 pikemen after adepticon, and they are all pewter. The pike hafts are pretty sad, and I'd like to replace them with brass. I'll resculpt the hands (or press mold the old ones in GS), and the tips.

My question - for 28 mm pikes, what thickness brass rod would look right? My guess is 1/32", but I don't know if 1/16" would be better, I think it's be too large.

Need to order the bar stock soon, so that it has time to get to me. There's no way a hobby store will carry enough to do 80 pikes (the pike looks like 4.5").

Thanks!

What you want are North Star's wire spears. Very nearly indestructible & the gold standard for spears in the historical community.

If in stock, you might also be able to find them at On Military Matters in the US.
