They restocked twice this year (in march, and I got mine at a june restock in July), but they are produced in China (based on the us import manifest from last October), and that i imagine has affected things muchly.

I'm not aware of any sets that fit with the plastic zm terrain (as most were designed to fit the slightly smaller card tiles), except for Sector Fatalis which seems to be at least as expensive as the real thing.

Although I would dearly love to be proven wrong!

There are some suitable zm floor tiles that can be 3d printed though, some of which "lock in" to the plastic sets as well...

I think Art of War studios retweaked their terrain to fit the plastic terrain. I have the older Hive range that fits the cardboard tiles but believe it doesn't fit their new Necromunda underhive range that they've released..though could be wrong on that.

Though guessing since you wouldn't put MDF terrain on a plastic base... Most MDF manufacturers aren't in a rush to address this

My thinking is they because people who are choosing MDF terrain over GWs plastic walls aren't likely to then shell out on plastic floors. MDF floor tiles do exist. Also the MDF walls won't fit easily on the plastic floors I believe as the plastic walls are moulded to fit.

Personally I might put plastic terrain on a cheaper MDF base sooner than the other way around. So the only benefit of matching wall lengths is to help people interchange MDF and plastic terrain walls on a flat base. Which doesn't encourage going all in on MDF..

I'm waiting for the ZM Floor Tiles too!

My hope that they might be available again along with the new Stronghold gang has unfortunately not been fulfilled.
Obviously, there seem to be bigger problems. I suspect either in the production or in the transport and shipping from China.

MDF is not an alternative for me here. 3D printing would be an option. If necessary, I might be able to create a shape, but I would like to avoid that.
For now I'm still waiting.

Have you clicked on the tiles to bring the main page up? They were showing as unavailable on the list screen here for a while, but when you clicked on them they were available. They hadn’t removed the ‘currently unavailable’ banner thing at first.

Not sure what you mean here, but if there is a way to buys these on GW’s US web store then I can’t find it.

I try to buy using the UK store but no dice, Well! it's a good thing I have one set, Just wish there was away I could buy just one more set, I was told this type stuff would happen when you buy into GW games, The only games they look after is 40K and AOS.
