Posted by Phalanx on 11 Aug 2009, 12:31

Hi friends...
I need many sarissas and javelins for my macedonian army.
think 150 pieces. Here`s a cheap and good way to build them.
hope it`s a help for you.




1. The brooms.

2. Cut them as long as you need.

3. Then make them flat

4. and cut it as a spear-head

Hope I could help you find a cheap way.

Cheers

A very good tip and great pictures! :thumbup: But maybe not a good excuse for avoid using the broom. :-D

And for every aspect of life there is always a song: :-D

Hey Phalanx, are you married, or did you use the broom of your mother? Anyhow when they see what you have done with the broom, I announce you big trouble! :mrgreen: :lol: :joker:

Thanks for showing :thumbup:

It´s a case of " the new broom that doesn´t sweep clean " :-) :joker:
Bashing the end of the bristle with a small hammer gets it flat as well, and if you´re going to do 150, it´s faster than pliers.
