I wanted to go with 4 to 6 packs. But then I built a prototype with 6, trying to build a 3x3 feet swamp landscape. I figured that 6 is not at all enough. I will need at least 8 packs. Here the photo of the prototype with 6 packs:

I have two cavern water packs painted outdoor colors and got a couple transition packs from this KS to make better use of them and terrain trays.

We are seeing banks as forested river banks, not really expecting to use them for scatter terrain, but love they gives that option.
We are going big on forest and at the moment no caverns, so expecting to get 5 sets that should give us enough banks to create a 4 foot long river that crosses out game table and then many more options to boot.

For using banks with a Stairway to violence there are many ways to turn its 4x4 footprint to 6x6, but without making assumptions of what DF you already have the easiest way is to get light forest tiles and using the 2 6x3 to give a treeless base to put your Stairway on.

I'm getting 2 packs ... thought about getting 4, but I never build big. I like combining stuff, small footprints (I know prob not the norm), mixing sets, etc. I think 2 will give a good bit of build flexibility - can always add some stone banks, or trifecta ledges, or KS5 ledges ... to complete an edge. Will def be enough for a small woodland stream, or if needed using some cliffs or escarpments to help make a pond.

Just thinking out loud as an example: a 6x2 little shrine built with 2 corner woodlands set pcs and a straight woodland wall between them, and in front of them lay down the long transition bank. Boom, a nice little forest shrine. So many options, and they only become more flexible with other sets offered as well - if willing to combine slightly diff looks.

Part of me thinks it’s overkill and I don’t want to be drowning in expensive stuff I don’t need. Hm.
Well do we really NEED any of this...probably not...do we really WANT a lot of this....absolutely and we and many others will be sending millions of dollars to DF in the next handful of weeks!! :D

These are my grown up toys and I tend to get whatever I think I want to and then figure out how to use it once I have it in hand.

Grown up toys for grown up kids! :lol: :lol:
