Also, the rocks on that screenshot could use some fixing for more smooth transitions between adjacent tiles.
Warcraft 2 uses so called https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oblique_p ... projection
which is pretty close to isometric projection, used for most Wesnoth units. In any case, Wesnoth units look better than Aleona Tales ones, even if perspective is broken.
And that screenshot is old. I had fixed some of the transitions.

here is a snow tileset, taken out of Mana World GPL2 tiles.

There is a significant difference; compare the perspective of AoE's (isometric) buildings with those of WC2, for instance.

Less difference than with, say, cabinet oblique or the top-down oblique. And you can use a simple transformation to convert isometry into military oblique.

The art style also seems to be different as well, with the drawings in Wesnoth having black or very pronounced dark outlines, whereas the terrain in your screenshot does not have anything like that.

Besides, wouldn't it be altogether better for Aleona's Tales to have its own graphics than to recycle material borrowed from elsewhere?

Warcraft 2 snow is just a recolored mud. So I recolored my grassland mud tiles to get similar snow.

Initial swamp tileset.

Mushroom sprite is based of GPL2 licensed mushrooms.png from Mana World MMORPG; Roots and terrain came from the public domain Daniel Harris "Hyptosis" tileset (http://opengameart.org/content/mage-city-arcanos)
