Two more days to endure before the dreadful grey emptiness of LAFlessness is over. We must be brave.


Cacique Caribe13 Feb 2018 9:32 a.m. PST

Why? Where did it go?


Personal logo StoneMtnMinis Supporting Member of TMP13 Feb 2018 10:23 a.m. PST

Didn't miss it. Must have minimal impact on the hobby.

Prince Rupert of the Rhine13 Feb 2018 10:25 a.m. PST

Lets hope when they have finished moving it everything is still there.

Gone Fishing13 Feb 2018 10:27 a.m. PST

Oh, but it does. Many, many good people there, always with lots of feedback and eye-candy. Love the place!

This downtime seems to be happening more often of late. Are they having website problems?

Cyrus the Great13 Feb 2018 10:50 a.m. PST

Really not that long of a wait.

Lead Adventure Forum (

John Leahy Supporting Member of TMP13 Feb 2018 11:26 a.m. PST

It's a really good site!

Darrell B D Day13 Feb 2018 11:52 a.m. PST

They are changing servers or hosts or something else techy technical.

If you don't know of it (where have you BEEN?), I'll undertake to post a link on that happy, imminent day it returns – hopefully Thursday.


Prince Rupert of the Rhine13 Feb 2018 12:36 p.m. PST

I guess people have missed it but Northstar are taking over LAF which I assume is the reason for the current maintenance


And for those who don't know about it LAF is a great forum with a lot of great painters and modellers. It has a very different vibe to TMP (not better just different)

Lead Adventure is a very good forum for painters and modelers. Alex, the founder and owner, has decided to stop as he has a busy life. He has given it to Nick Eyre of North Star. NIck is moving the hosting to his U.K. Based server.

Great Miniatures forum. Worth looking at.

altfritz13 Feb 2018 6:17 p.m. PST

Is it still only Tuesday?!

Personal logo Dentatus Sponsoring Member of TMP Fezian14 Feb 2018 5:46 a.m. PST

I figured it was migrating to a new server due to the change in management. Looking forward to having it back.

jaztez15 Feb 2018 3:56 a.m. PST

Astonished two manufacturers on this thread have never heard of one of the major gaming forums. Marketing 101 failed?

Prince Rupert of the Rhine15 Feb 2018 8:49 a.m. PST

TBF LAF has always felt pretty Eurocentric so US companies may not be overly aware of it

Mick in Switzerland15 Feb 2018 10:58 a.m. PST

LAF is back and now with a .com address.

Cyrus the Great15 Feb 2018 11:03 a.m. PST

Yes, it is!

altfritz15 Feb 2018 2:47 p.m. PST

Looks slightly off, but its back! :-)

Grimmnar16 Feb 2018 8:17 p.m. PST

Altfritz, "slightly off" is a bit of an understatement.
I been away from the keyboard for a few days so i didn't know of the migration.
I hope there will be more tweaking. Just doesn't seem right.

And to the above comments. If your a seller of gaming goods, Eurocentric or not, you should be aware of LAF. Too many companies are plowing only into FB and missing out.
For those who dont know that people in Europe, for example, play and buy miniature/wargaming supplies.

Odd issue I'm encountering -- my PC browsers (Chrome/Edge/Opera) cannot connect to the site. I get a "This site can't be reached" error.

However, I *can* connect via a mobile browser on my android phone.

Anyone have any ideas why that's happening?

LeonAdler Sponsoring Member of TMP14 Jun 2018 10:28 a.m. PST

Never got on with LAF guys, admin seems to make life as difficult as they can and maybe it was just the two I encountered but they came across as decidely 'sniffy'.

Terry Naylor16 Aug 2018 2:17 p.m. PST

The same happened to me.
Got an email saying l was banned .Didn't give any reason but l think it was because l hadn't posted in 6 weeks.When trying to view site just
says error.
I can connect via android and I'm not banned.
I did PM mod but never had the decency to reply.

No great loss as forum's are losing there importance.
