Which Warpaints Fanatic Box Should You Get?

How To Build Your Warpaints Fanatic Collection

The wait is finally over, and the full range of Warpaints Fanatic Boxes is now available (unless we have some secrets up our sleeves 😉).

With the different Fanatic Paint Sets to choose from, you may be wondering,

Which one should I get?”.

Don’t worry – we’ve got you! This blog post will cover the different boxes, explain their differences, and who the target group for the various boxes is and in addition we’ll show you how the boxed sets were developed to help you expand your Fanatic collection over time.

Let’s dive in.

How To Grow and Expand Your Fanatic Range

When you see the number of boxes we’re releasing, you might be thinking, “They only do that to get customers to purchase more.”

But that is certainly not the case! Because when we developed the Fanatic boxes and their contents, we had a clear vision in mind. We wanted to enable you to get as many paints as you want at the best price possible.

So, the boxes are all designed to work together and are developed in a way that makes it easy to add to your collection without purchasing duplicates. Most of the paints in the Fanatic Starter Set are also found in the Mega Set. The Most Wanted Set, on the other hand, features different colours than those found in the Starter Set and only limited duplicates with the Mega Set.

This means that you can easily level up and grow your own Warpaints Fanatic range.
