I bought some 40mm spears from Perry Miniatures last month (25/5/11) and, to be honest, they're awful!
Here's a pic
Most of the spears were like the one on the left!
I've emailed Perry Miniatures several times in the last month but to no avail. No reply what-so-ever. I'm aware that they are akin to gaming royalty but that's no excuse for poor quality goods and rubbish customer service.
I hope this is just a temporary glitch. I shall keep on sending them polite emails, or failing that, see them at the next show I attend.
