And it begins.... so I’ve just received the first box for my new Project. I’ve just started Saim Hann so I’ve decided to start a Blog and post pictures and info on my progress as I collect towards Apocalypse size force.

Leave comments as to what you would like to see added to the force or any idea's you have about how to use the force all ideas and criticism are welcome.

The kits are nice and simple to put together, a bit of cleaning up here and there but it didn’t take me long at all to get the nine Windriders built and ready for the next step.... Base coating.

In the box was 3 boxes for of Wind-riders and 3 Vypers. No list in mind although I want to stick to the fast paced Wild Rider style of the Saim Hann. I’ll put together diffrent lists with what I have. Might even put it down to the comments as to what I should add to the list next but I’ll deal with that when it comes.

Might want to see if you can find any of the older start collecting boxes. Jetseer, bike squad, and a prism. You can always use more of the first two in a saim-hann list, and grav tanks fit in nicely and add some needed punch.

All without getting your boots muddy, which is only for the lesser races.

Jetseer squad is on the list along with 3 prism’s, I’ve ordered another 3 boxes of Wind Riders and another 3 Vypers to start off. It’ll take time to get it all up and running but once one stage is finished I’ll order the next. I want to try and avoid Titans as I’ve just never been a fan of games that include them.

I’m thinking that I’ve perhaps put this topic together in a bit of an awkward fashion, it may be better to separate the painting pics with the actual package/completed pics, so have a Saim Hann Apocalypse Topic with only the Package opening and Completed Pics or its going to be a case of having like 3 pages worth of content before the list even hits 1000 points, what do you guys think? Would it be a better idea to start a separate topic dedicated to the building and painting of the individual units and another topic dedicated to the new additions/progress of the actual Saim Hann Force as it grows?

If this works then I’ll keep going as I am, I’m about 75% complete with the first wind rider unit.

This format works. Just post WIP as you go, finished pics as you complete them, and army pics as often as you can. Pics of supply drops also work.

With new blogs I'm normally curious what the plan is. You got a mystery box in the first pic, and a lofty title of apocalypse, so I wondered if you had a firm plan, or were adding the things as you go.

Work in progress with the Wind Riders. I think they have came out really well, I especially love the White Saim Hann transfer over the black stripes what do you guys think?
[Thumb - ECA65A10-839C-4BFB-9759-054AF16E60BC.jpeg]
Using Mephiston Red I put the first layer on the rear wings and set the masking tape where I wanted the stripes to be.

[Thumb - 3CB449BC-256F-4E00-A262-07F63BFB148B.jpeg]
With the tape in place I applied the first and second coats of Mephiston Red and base coated the helmet Celestra Grey

[Thumb - 02660421-C84B-423E-A343-1B9CB46EC50C.jpeg]
Once the coats dried I applied a shade of Agrax Earth shade

[Thumb - 880CEC10-6D03-4AF0-91C5-91AD2E7223FC.jpeg]
Once the shade was dry I applied the final coat of Mephiston Red and Highlighted the thruster at the rear with Runefang steel

[Thumb - 0681BDFC-A509-4393-AD8B-7D2AF1A60A86.jpeg]
I smoothed down the edges of the stripes using water and applied the transfer, Adding layers of White scar to the Helmet and painting the face plate Abbadon Black

Nice simple kits to put together, it’s also a bonus that the Vypers come with a transfer sheet each as it allowed me to have extra’s for other kits.

Thanks, Nevelon, Lipdapips, Jin. The force isn’t going to win best painted by any means but I do think the Wind Rider Sqaud have came out really really well, they will look good with the addition of the Vypers.

Keep checking in to watch on the progress as I go and watch the Force grow Let me know what additions you guys would like to see added to the force.

Base coat complete, one point to note with the Vypers is that they have a Gem Stone on the nose which causes a lot of problems when trying to apply the Saim Hann transfer so what I’ve done is cut the Gem Stone off and smoothed off the surface, this will make my life a lot easier when it comes to applying the transfer, not to mention it’ll make the transfer sit and look a lot tidier.

Hurr! Ogryn Bone 'Ead!






Your Saim Hann force is shaping up nicely- thank you for the (possibly unintentional) tutorial on how to do the racing stripes! I've got a force of Eldar waiting their turn to be painted, and not sure which Craftworld/Clan to do them up in- Saim Hann just entered the realm of the possible.

First set of Vypers complete, removing the Gem Stones from the nose is a must the transfers look terrible if you don’t. Not to bad I think they look really good as a set of three, What do you guys think?

They look awesome so far , it was the force I started building Eldar with (with scorpions in a wave serpent).

What I’d love to see, though not a GW rule or model for, is a wraithlord cut up and riding a huge jet bike .

Thanks Theophony, Turnip, Jin, The force is starting to come together, The second box is a mirror of the first so i wont put up any WIP pics, ill get them built and painted and get the Force pic up as soon as possible, Im currently 60% of the way through the second Wind Rider squad, ive got a good conveyer system going so im working through these box sets fairly quickly. Im looking forward to breaking the 1000 point mark and start getting a number of games under in.
