I have 10 sets and a couple wells. I likely will only get one of everything offered and round out with trees, which I don't have much of. I'm going to get two bush sets combined for one of the big sets - I like that they offered that option near the end. I have Dreadhollow coming, but believe there is use for me to have these also for a quick build, easier transport and some variety. As to which sets I like the least - probably the rocks. Like many, I would have liked a set of downed trees but will settle for 1-2 scatter terrain.

I think this is a very cool Kick starter. I like the swamp accessory set the best. It reminds me of William's set.The LED crystals are also nice. I am going to pass because I already have too many trees.
I am in for mostly trees, as I have too few.

Right now I have

4 Dungeon Crawler treant trees
16 small christmas pine trees Kitenerd sent me
2 medium sized trees i got at a dollar shop

Soon to have
4 small and 2 large DF KSVI trees
At least 9 and probably twelve Monster trees.

I hope to add nothing in the PM. I am in for a set each of the oddly colored trees, but unsure exactly what to do with the last two sets. Might go for a pond set or two. Maybe broken ground. Dunno now.

We went in at Campaign but not just for trees - going to a few trees at the backend of the year :)

But also for Barren ground, barricades and maybe some desert rocks. Hoping to resist the urge to add more in the PM.

I got an EB War pledge and am thinking of something like this, though I need to tweak it a little as I have more trunks than canopies:

I am sure I am going to have to do something similar with my EB War pledge as well, just had not given it any thought until the PM comes out sometime in the next few weeks. Also looking to limit how much I add in the PM as well.

I like the pink trees, but I am not sure pink leaves make sense. I hope DF sculpts some blossoms. That might get me to buy into their tree system.

I ended up in for a couple hundred, five sets and should be happy with that amount. At the end I looked at these trees and the KSVI trees DF is offering and made a choice.....

Me, personally, I do not like the blue trees so much. They look too fairy-tale-ish to me.

That said, I still might have one or the other setting where those blue trees could add some point of special interest to the build. The autumn trees in the opposite do look nice, but do not work for me as just a few. I would need to have the entire table covered autumn-style. And that will not happen because I only intend the trees to complement my Dreadhollow.

Therefore I opted for a pink tree set, a blue tree set, one set of 6 green treetops (for stacking and building larger green trees), a rock set, a broken ground set and a barricade set. Plus many add-ons like well and crystals.

For the barricades, I hope they double up as fences, because I also have two docks sets from KS6, which look nicer.

So overall I agree that not all the sets are really strong. But for me: strong enough, still.
