Anyone know where one could acquire about 16 miniature swords?

Something like the sword on the left of this image from Reaper Mini:


Or the claymore on the top left here works well too:


Of course, all these weapon packs are diverse, and I have no need of the various axes, maces, spears, and such. Would like just swords.

Basically wanted to replace Shadow Over Camelots black/white sword chits with actual sword miniatures.

Thanks in advance!

Ok, not quite as "authentic" looking as what you showed, but how about the sword toothpicks that they use in some cocktails?

You can get a box of 36 for .99 + shipping from Amazon.

Also available in restaurant supply stores.

Look up Playmobil swords on E-Bay. See if those fit the bill.

As mentioned above: Games Workshop stores have a 4" thick catalog with every single sprue they make / still have stock.

Some of those have a ton of swords on them of different types. You can even buy specific swords from the game (Both Fantasy and 40k have good looking swords).

That's what I was thinking. They come in a variety of colors, too.

Perfect. Thanks a ton man. I thought I left no stone unturned when I tried eBay earlier.

I'm going to swing by a local hobby shop that's listed on GW's site, doubt they'll have it (sounds like this store specializes in anime/manga), but worth a shot before I put in an order for those eBay swords.

Thanks to everyone, actually. I was thinking this thread would've sunk to the bottom with 0 replies. cry
