Come and take a look inside the Army Painter’s ‘Hobby Care Package’ which features new hobby paint sets, basing sets, tools, and more.

The Army Painter makes some of the best paints and hobby kits out there. So much so that you can, in this very video, hear a living, breathing human get enthusiastic about finding tufts of grass. Little tiny tufts of grass–and with good reason too. I mean, have you seen them? Well take a look.

There’s a lot of stuff to dive through, as you can see in the video, but it’s enough to really help any hobbyist make their start. Some of these tools are tried and true: we found a few pin vises, brushes, “hobby blades” sprinkled in throughout the mix. But the two big stars of the box were the Hobby Set, and the Battlefield Basing Set.
