Asset Drop continue to offer their monthly subscription box, which features new themes and contains paint, other hobby products and a guide to how to use them.
As a special offer for July only, ALL PRIME members can buy any Asset Drop Paint Box at 20% using the code: WIPRIME20 This includes the Heroines and Monster boxes too, and June’s Discovery box (The one in the unboxing)
The June box is based around two different themes, one being a series of paints designed to add weathering and oil effects to engines and machinery, the other being paints which are ideal for creating ice effects.
The weathering paints for engines and metallics are from two different companies, Secret Weapon and LifeColor. These are all acrylics, washes really, with full instructions on how to use them contained in a booklet.
The ice effect paints are from ScaleColor, who create heavily pigmented paint, again acrylics, and variants upon blues.
There is also a sample of the WarColours Gloss Varnish, to seal what you’ve produced and to add that extra ‘shine’ to your earlier results.
In addition to the paints, there is a Guide booklet on how to use them. This has stage-by-stage examples and hints and tips, a very useful guide for those who are veteran or beginner painters.
As a method of obtaining top quality paints at a reasonable price, Asset Drop is a great subscription service. Yet the ‘value added’ addition of the booklet really adds to the overall usefulness. This is well worth checking out for any painter or gamer looking to add something extra to their work.
