Longsword Space Fighter

Hi all, 
Beighton's Shipyard is proud to present it's latest creation, the Longsword medium fighter. This multi-role fighter is equally at home intercepting bombers in the vacuum of space or providing ground support in the atmosphere of a contended planet.

Ohhhh Shiney!

Hi Folks,
I was supposed to finish my tavern, but I kinda got distracted....
I decided to build a space fighter, because I had a crazy idea!

I've been thinking about this since I built the TOAD transport and a comment from Evyn MacDude got me thinking. He wrote:
So, ever get the urge to write it up in the Spaceship combat system of your choice and make an appropriated sized miniature for it?

T.O.A.D pt 4

Hi all,
I've finished painting the outside of the TOAD, decided to make it look old and battered, with different parts different shades, panels being replaced at different times, etc. I've finished the cockpit, although if I can find a suitable seated mini, I'll pop some seats in.

T.O.A.D Pt 3 mean green flying machine.

Hi all,
I've started to paint the T.O.A.D, (btw don't think I told you what TOAD is suppose to stand for. It's Transport for Omniphibious Advanced Deployment). Here's some pictures, enjoy.

T.O.A.D. Pt 2

Hey all,
Just an quick update on my little transport ship, getting more of the outside detail done. Engine pods, sponsored by Glenfiddich Whiskey Company, are mounted but need some detail. Anyway, here's some pictures, sorry about the bad lighting.

Saturday, 21 May 2016


Hi all,
Just thought i'd show you some work in progress of a little transport ship i'm making, the T.O.A.D. The plans for this vehicle is from Future Armada's Wayfarer PDF available here, The PDF is supposed to give you floor plans for spaceships, they do quite a few, but I thought, why not make one?

Shia Khan Cannon Fodder & PM Squad

Hi all, just another painting update, this week we have some cannon fodder, loyal soldiers for the Shia Khan. I've used NAC troopers, from GZG, to represent a unit of Betrayers. Betrayers are humans converted to the Shia Khan cause, through a process of mental manipulation and cybernetic implants. Painted in the Purple of my Shia Khan army, Purple People Eater Legion?, and pictured with squad support weapons and a two man weapon team.

Space Pirate and Walordy Nox

Hi all,

My lead pile is slowly getting painted up, this week we have another unit of Nox, along with some muscle, in the form of a Warlord. All miniatures are from

I've got a few more units primed for painting, including a Legionary unit, a Pioneer unit and a unit of Betrayers (not the official ionage miniatures, i'm afraid i'm not keen on those).

I picked up a random miniature to paint, while i was waiting for the bases to dry on the Nox and Warlord. It is the female Youxia free miniature from theionage, still available from the Year Two Collection on theionage website.

I see this miniature as a space pirate, been playing Assassins Creed - Black Flag again, kinda reminds me of a female Edward Kenway, I'm hoping to give her a spaceship and pirate crew to do some skirmishing with!

That's it for now, hope you've enjoyed!

Spaceships and Helicopters...

Hi all,

I've not gotten back into the flow of painting since the new year started i'm afraid, only painting a little bit, so not much to update you on.

Before I forget, I found a little bargain in town the other day, while looking for art supplies, in The Works, for the missus, I spied a Black Ops Helicopter model (it's basically a Blackhawk). It didn't say what scale it was so I took a chance...

Happy New Year!!!

I'd like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year. I suppose, this being the first post of the year, I should plan out some new year resolutions, stating how I'm going to achieve certain things this year..... I'm not going to do that. I tried it last year and didn't get anywhere near what I wanted to achieve. I get distracted and go off on tangents, start projects only to get distracted again and not finish them. I will try to finish projects, but I'm not promising anything :)

I haven't posted much in a while, we had some building work done before Christmas, which meant I had to pack my hobby room away so the floor could be lifted. Over the holidays I've tried to get the room squared away, I haven't managed to yet, but I did manage to convert and paint a couple of things, I did mention I get distracted didn't I?

First up is a conversion of a Rebel Minis Hero from their 15mm Super Hero pack A.

Based on Batman in Arkham Origins.
