I like the Woodland sets too. I think they make nice gardens and mazes for more modern gaming. I bought the first one and was disappointed in the fit, but decided I needed a second set before they become unobtainium. I am happy with the purchase. It would be nice for an resin expansion that would make them less uniform and more sylvan.

I really do like my two sets, poor fitting or not. They are basically my only DF resin ab\nmd the sculpting is awesome.

I would be interested in a remastered or an "inspired by" set, especially if there's a potential for elven style tree-houses to match.

Below is a link to a good discussion from 2013 of some of the issues with the Woodland set.

I believe this was the main reason why this set was discountinued in the past.

Stefan and DF in general knew and openly admitted that the fitting was a bit "uneven" in this set (can't remember who sculpted it, but I remember something along the lines of "paid more attention to the artistic part, a little less to the perfect fitting"). It was discussed multiple times in this forum, and I think also in some live streams.

This was why a reprint wasn't planned.
But people kept asking for it, even with its imperfections, so it was finally recast.

I got 2 and I am happy with them, I knew about the fitting, but it is after all fine (in particular for a woodland setting).

I doubt they will go through the work of resculpting it all as is...
But I would be in for a new, similar set, that could be used as a new "base woodland" set, or use as an addition of the current/old one.

I guess I'm just not that picky. While I found that there was the occasional gap, I think builds with Woodlands look great, even when mixed with other sets.

Here's one I did last year using woodlands to make a small cottage and hedge maze. I used CBS, Erinthor, and Woodlands for this build.

I'm in too.
Was so much disappointed by the pieces that do not fix together well while the details were so great.
It's in a box somewhere, I never use it. So sad.

What do you mean remastered?

Same set but all the pieces resized to fit better? I got two newer sets six months ago and they do not fit well at all. I was a little surprised by that actually.
