Replace the "telegraphpole pikes", a bit of fiddling with bits and pieces..not a bad set

I agree, their quality looks like it is getting better and better, but the poles are really bad

As someone noted on another forum..the PSR review is quite funny..
In this set however we have quite a wide array of weaponry, starting with the two men with very long spears/pikes in the top row. While their weapons are of an impressive length, unfortunately they are also of an impressive width. Each is about 2mm at the base, which scales up to almost 15 cms, so they are more tree-trunks than pikes that could be lifted and manoeuvred. Try getting your hand round something that thick and you will see it is impossible to grip, but the sculptor has got around this problem by failing to provide the first pikeman with any hands at all, while the second merely has the pike resting in his hand

Well that solves the problem... not! I got some 5cm pikes from a us manufacturer and these are really great as they can not bend and are very realistic!

They are made of metal, can not recommed the long ones as they become too thick, but the short spears are great!
