Perhaps they will consider an overlay (like the grid) with a whirl pool printed on it... then you have a modular one that can be used with *anything*. Any tray, tiles, mat... It could even be a magical swirl on a dungeon floor!
Overlay sounds good though possibly fiddly. Prefer our original idea of printed on the terrain tray with the same water on the reverse without whirlpool.

If your using the whirlpool then you'd probably construct your encounter around it and you might want a big one!

The resin whirlpool isn't just painted, the resin itself swirls down. I haven't found a good use for it yet, though it looks pretty sweet.

That is an intriguing idea. The acetate can obviously be printed, what with the grid and all. Could even potentially be double sided, if the silhouette of whatever is printed works for both images.

Not saying it’ll happen, but it’s a clever idea. Good homebrew option if DF doesn’t do it.

So what will KSVI bring to the table ?

Murky water with a whirlpool
Murky water with a 'white lies beneath' ripple
rough stone
just plain rock
a stream ?!
Dirt?
I am sure there will be some water looking similar to the old water tiles.
Whirlpools, I doubt, because this would restrict building the whirlpool to a certain point on the tray and decrease modularity.
The others - - seem plausible.
And of course: the darkest black for bottomless holes

Ok so terrain trays are a gimme for KSVI

but what terrain will they be - we already have stone, water, Lava and Acid.

I'm not sure that's much of a rumour, I'm pretty sure they've openly said a couple of times that the terrain trays proved to be popular and would be returning.

But a good thing to have reiterated all the same.
