Phaser. I'd be a bounty hunter instead of a force user. Tinker with the devices and have an automatic phaser instead of one shot and recharge. Pretty sure you could have several on rotation. Only have to worry about overheating.

Curiosity, could they construct explosives out of lightsabre technology?

Probably. Overload the doohickey, or crosswire it with the drailsprail ...

 

Phasers. I'm no use with a sword.

.. both, if I /was/ any use with a sword. ;p

I'm taking this question to imply whether you'd rather find yourself in Star Trek's future, or Star Wars' past.

 

I'll take the phaser.

Phasers, they're very much 'point and click'.

 

It seems like it would take a lot of practise before I could use a lightsaber without risking multiple amputations.

DeLameter. Or a Dureum space axe when appropriate.

I'll take a trusty lasgun in my fight for the Emperor! I guess I choose the unspoken Warhammer 40,000 option...

 

Really, I'd choose Phaser as it seems like I have the most applicable training for it. Well, I could say the same for the Lightsaber if it's knife-sized.

I'm going to go with phaser.  I can use a phaser to shoot an animal for supper, and I don't have to be all sneaky.  Seriously, can you imagine a Jedi in a survival scenario?

 

"The Force is strong here."

Dude, it's been like three days.  I'm hungry.

"You must let go of your physical desires and become one with that which is all around you."

My physical desire is for pizza, and I don't have the little whachamajiggers in my blood.  Help me catch a squirrel or I won't share my dinner.

"Very well.  I sense a creature over here - oh, he ran off."

Yes, they do that when you start tromping through the woods.  What exactly did you learn while you were at the Jedi Academy?
"
Mental fortitude, history, wuxia, and ballroom dance."

Great.  We're going to die out here and you can do a foxtrot.  Get a fox over here so I can shoot him.  Maybe if we can get a whole family I can fashion some sort of coat and not freeze once the triple suns set on this godforsaken world.

The one where I don't have to worry about hiding the body afterwards.

 

Do they recharge on a standard USB port?

      This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present:



      Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did.

       
       
      Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover...

      I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.

      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

      This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither. 
       
      I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

      So, 2017 was my first year in this hobby. I discovered the joys of miniatures. I discovered Reaper. I discovered Bones 4, and the Reaper forums with it. I'm going to post pictures of everything I've painted this year, more or less in order...with a bit of a blurb about my journey. Starting with before I joined these forums, my first miniatures. 
       
      KOBOLDS - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72557


      These were my first miniatures I painted. Yeah. I started with small kobolds... And with WizKids... (I didn't have primer on hand to start).
       
      GOBLINS - Reaper Bones - 77024

      What comes after kobolds? Goblins. I have no idea how there are only 9, when they come in packs of 6....I only remember painting 9, as well...This is a mystery... Also, these guys got painted based on a Runescape quest...yeah. I'm a nerd.
       
      ADVENTURERS - WizKids Deep Cuts -  72596, 72597, 72600, 72601

      So I used the WizKids adventures for Acolytes in my Hoard of the Dragon Queen game...yeah...these were my first human paint jobs.
       
      Golanth, Half Dragon Warrior - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03463

      Golanth was the first metal mini I painted. I remember loving tinting his armor. I also had to base him to keep him from falling over.
       
      Various Furniture - Reaper Bones - 77319, 77138, 77137

      I wanted some dungeon dressing...
       
      Swarms - Reaper Bones - 77129, 77128

      Thanks to Hoard of the Dragon Queen, the enemies my players are most afraid of are...RAT SWARMS. Yeah, the rat swarms in ch.1 almost ended up with a TPK. Good times.
       
      Halfling Rogue - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72627

      This chick was my first painted player mini. She was a halfling bard. I remember giving up on her eyes.
       
      Dracolisks - Reaper Bones - 77379

      I was super proud of these guys when I first did them. I loved how the washes looked!
       
      Cultist - Reaper Bones - 77351

      My goodness, I started to do detail with this guy! I'd actually discovered Reaper's forums with him, but I stayed just a lurker for a while.
       
      Andriessa, Female Wizard - Reaper Bones - 77386 OR 77381 (DDS2)

      I really spent a lot of time on her. I wanted to try and see just how detailed I could paint. 
       
      More Goblins - WizKids Deep Cuts - 72579

      More goblins.
       
      Black Bear (Companion Animals) - Reaper Bones - 77216

      The druid kept turning into a bear. It made me angry, but I still painted him up a mini.
       
      Phoenix  - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72563

      I just kind of stuck some red ink on this one.
       
      Deep Ones - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - SKU ????????? (None of my searches are finding these guys)

       
      Peryton - Reaper Bones - 77392

       I actually used reference photos for this guy!
       
      Spiders - Reaper Bones - 77025

      Mister Mouse is scared of spiders and hates these guys. He insists I keep them put away.
       
      Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03340

      Recognize her? She was the first mini I posted up on these forums! She was used as my mini for my player character, Ashes. She was also my first attempt at basing. Additionally, you might remember her being my avatar for a long while.
       
      Zombies - Reaper Bones - 77053, 77014

      I played with some special effects with these guys. I still love the results! 
       
      Skeletons - Reaper Bones - 77242, 77241, 77244, 77238, 77237

      So many skeletons! I also think I have the wrong sku for my spearman...
       
      Ghast - Reaper Bones - 77159

       
      Wraith - Reaper Bones - 77097

      I tried adding a tuft of grass to this guy, in the back.
       
      Plant Thing - Reaper Bones - ?????

      I got this from Stoneskull...don't know the actual SKU.
       
      Bear - Reaper Bones - ??????

      I have no idea the SKU on this bear - it came with Bones 3 core. He was my first attempt to paint for display, instead of tabletop.
       
      More Cultists and a Circle - Reaper Bones - 77351

      I tried to get a glowy effect on the circle...I still like the first cultist I did a little better...
       
      Tombstone - Reaper Bones - ?????

      From Bones 3 Graveyard
       
      Necromancer - Reaper Bones - 77283

      I hate the paint job I did on her...she's the last mini I painted using only Army Painter Paints...
       
      Level Up! - Reaper Learn to Paint Kit - 08907

      And so, I leveled up (I have no clue where the gnome went, and the pirate apparently needs a touch-up)
       
      Adventuring Kid - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03783

      And so, I tried to apply what I learned and also do NMM...this kid didn't turn out so great. But I tried!
       
      Hot Foot - Reaper ReaperCon 2017 Mousling -  01616

      My FIRST MOUSLING!!!! I'm still really happy about how the bubbling lava came out. Also my lesson in painting before assembly.
       
      Bandit - Reaper Bones - ?????
       
      And so, I went back and tried speed painting something...
       
      Lizardman Archer - Reaper Bones - 77425

      Speed painted to test Eldar colors...
       
      Wrapping Dragon - Reaper Special Edition - 05193

      I finally start to be getting shading and eyes! Yay!
       
      Christmas Speed Paints - Reaper - ???, 77436, 77435, 77433, 01552

      And so, I now speed paint at a much higher quality than I even slow painted at in the beginning.
       
      I feel like 2017 was great. 92 painted miniatures later, I think my skill has improved drastically. I hope my skill keeps improving in 2018!

      These are what I finished painting this year, a year that was somewhat abbreviated by world events. Really, this is what I painted in the last six months, since political dismay kept me from the miniatures table for approximately eight months after the last US Presidential election.
       
      This year I painted my first Reaper Warlord figures who were also my first oversized werewolves, 77754 the Rageclaw Slayer, and 77755, Aislinn, Shadow Tracker.
       
      Nearly everything I painted was for the White Wolf World of Darkness and Exalted.
