I'm not a figure man but I'd you use metal rod of the appropriate diameter.

Hi @mastic in 75mm the (broken?) spear(s) I would suggest either a wooden cocktail stick or a barbecue skewer, cut to length, nowt better than wood for wood!

As for arrows, the suggestion made by Stuart @Courageous above makes good sense, as you can get metal rod from https://www.albionhobbies.com/ 

in a variety of sizes.

Thank you, I was worried a cocktail stick maybe be out of scale and the rods looks exactly what i need. I don't mind using a bit of green stuff to make arrowheads and the wrapping for the spear. Thank you once again

Make sure the arrows are the correct length too. Often they are way too short. I've not tried the before but I'd probably go for a relevant metal rod painted and paper for fletching. Good luck with it.
