Default Orchestral Template Creation

I'm going to start work on some classical/film type orchestral projects (new to me) with Logic Pro X (not new to me) and EastWest libraries, mostly the Hollywood series.

I've set up the initial template with woodwinds, brass, percussion and strings. That's about 30 tracks that I have set up in 4 groups as above. I have only one track per instrument and will be handling articulations via articulation sets in Logic. (purchasing articulation sets from BabylonWaves)

QUESTION: As a starting point for new projects, what's the best way to set up the AUX effects (primarily reverb) channels? 1) route each of my 30 individual interments to a BUS or... 2) route each of my four groups to a separate BUS or... 3) it doesn't matter?

I create an FX bus for each group/stem. This allows you treat the reverbs differently, for instance with different EQ, stereo width enhancer, and also obviously allows for different settings within the reverb plugins for each section.

You may not benefit from this, but I also have mine split for stemming purposes, so I can bounce each group separately in one go with the appropriate reverbs.
