Review: Asset Drop – Useful Hobby Supplies & Guides
This hobby focused subscription box has something to offer new and veteran hobbyists alike.
Asset Drop is a subscription service delivers high quality hobby supplies and guides to hobbyists once a month. The box (or drop, as they call them) offers veteran painters an ability try out new products that they didn’t know about, and help shake up their hobby routine. It’s also useful for those just starting up because of the included comprehensive painting guides. It’ll help everyone build a solid collection of supplies to work with.
I got to check out January’s Discovery Box – it gives an idea of what types of products you can expect to receive.
- Scale Color – Brown Leather, Iroko, Inktense Chestnut
- Coat d’Arms – Horse Tone Bay, Golden Yellow, Sun Yellow
- Precision Ice & Snow Kit with Instruction Booklet
- 16 Page Guide – Painting Leather, Wood, & Yellow
The booklets provide everything you need to know to get the most out of the supplies in the box, and are constructed solidly so you can refer to them as many times as you need to. They’re well written, have great step by step images, and are easy to follow. You’ll get a guide in every Discovery box – you’re not just getting paint, you’re getting tutorials that can help improve your skills.
The quality and thought behind the box I received is what has me totally sold on the service – and why I encourage you to try it. The folks at Asset Drop aren’t just dumping random products into a box and shipping it out. All of the products work together, and the guides are actually useful.
Asset Drop works with companies with produce quality products – they’ve included things from Acolytle Miniatures, LifeColor Liquid Pigment, WarColours, RN Estudio, and Reaper Master Series. Based on what they’ve included in the boxes so far, you will get premium product every time you get a box.
March’s Discovery box is available now for £19.90 and it includes:
- 8 paints from 3 companies
- A painting guide that will teach new techniques to make your minis look great
They also offer a box that comes with hobby supplies and some badass female minis – perfect if you’re looking to do a new project once a month. This month’s Heroines Box is £21.90 and includes a mini and scenic base from Wargame Exclusive, and 3 Coat d’Arms paints. This is what came in January’s…
Our January box is now on its way to the Veteran Sergeant to use on his painting stream this month – so make sure you tune in on Twitch to learn more about the paints and snow effects.
