Fanchon, I would like to be the first to "Welcome" you to the ADDICTION!!!

You Won't go wrong with the Woodland sets and depending on your adventures, having several of the basic sets will be very handy for making ANY setup.

You may want to post a NEW thread mentioning you are new and would like opinions about which sets to buy first.

Welcome!

Welcome Wynne D Fanchon,

To be completely honest with you (and toward all new DF customers by the way), I believe you should start with a "Classic Dungeon Set" such as a "Room & Passage Set" or a "Room Set". Although the Room Set is now out of stock, the "Room and Passage Set" is in stock and you should concentrate on that (Perhaps only 1 or 2 to see if you like them?). The pieces in there are the most versatile and useful around and they include most of the pieces found in the Room Set. All the other sets are bonus pieces in my mind and you should find out first if DF is good for (or are you good enough for DF as some would say? ;-) ). Most DF forum enthusiasts have a big collection of DF stuff but most of them started with 1 or 2 Classical Dungeon Set.

Wynne D Fanchon, welcome to the addiction!
I totally agree with Biowizard, start with Rooms and Passages. A couple of those plus some select individual pieces like stairs,pedestals, pillars, and diagonal walls will go a looong way for lots of dungeon builds. Maybe add on a Ruins Set if you can afford it. Take a tour of the cool photos threads....lots of inspiration there.

Welcome to the addiction Wynne!

I totally agree with biowizard and arcarius! You should start with Room and Passage sets, but don't go for just 2. Get more since I never found a single person not liking DF.
My advice is to get you 2 or more Advanced Builder Set 2, because with those special pieces you will be able to fill in 'the holes' between the corridors and thus create a more versatile (and imho a more 'realistic') dungeon.
And of course take cavern sets into consideration. Even with only the basic cavern sets you will have plenty of fun.

Hi dndgamer, biowizard, Arcarius2001, Dwarf

Thanks so much for the loved advice! I am thinking to get both the woodland set (plus the Woodland Accessories perhaps? I like those tiny stuff with so many details) and the Room & Passage Set together given that everyone rated the later one as a must.

Again it breaks my heart when I found that some of the very useful sets (i.e. Advanced builder, Wicked Additions, and the fabulous Cavern sets) are simply unavailable because of empty stock.

I can't help to imagine what happen to those popular sets. Did a group of ruthless, bloodthirsty humanoid raid this website by hitting their F5 button every ten seconds in hope of finding the last remaining piece, filling their never satiated hunger for hoard just like dragon? :o

Perhaps Dwarven Forge can emulate the model used by GMT games. GMT is a wargaming company, and before they actually print any game in development, or reprint an older game, they wait for a certain number of placed orders first. It's been very successful from what I can see, and it would seem like an effective way to manage the restocking difficulties.
