Question for July 3rd:


Lightsabers or Phasers?

Yes, I can dual wield.
and I would also be force sensitive.

Definitely phaser....

A Jedi is not blocking a phaser set to stun, as it is an area effect weapon....

Besides, why bring a sword to a gunfight?

Phasers, I'm generally pretty bad with melee weapons.

There has never been a more appropriate time for this response.

While light sabers are cool I have to go with phaser. It's the futuristic multitool, everything you need to survive on a hostile planet for a camping trip. It stuns, kills or atomises. You can heat rocks, marshmellows or TV dinners. Cut metal, weld metal or blow big holes in metal. Available in pocket size, hand held, rifle or kill your local god sizes. I always personally quite liked the originals where you stick a little one into a pistol that sticks into a rifle for more power. Makes me wonder if the ship to ship phasers have a big rifle or mid sized cannon stuck into them.

I would have to go with lightsaber. For those of us in food service it is the more practical.

Chicken and dumplings taking too long to heat? Stir with tip.

Left burner out on grill? Line up beef patties under blade.

Need 20+ lbs of bacon for brunch and less than a half hour to get it sliced? Phaser can't help you there.

Customer getting uppity? Three feet of glowing redness tends to return them to civility on sight.

Also since lightsabers are not firearms, one doesn't have to worry about the ATF raiding in the middle of a lunch rush.

Servers squabbling over whose section is whose, lightsaber duel in the beer garden at dusk. Preferably during a slow weekday, the bright colors will attract random foot traffic and opportunites for side bets.

Makes dealing with management easier. (Oh you think I'm paid too much? I find your lack of faith disturbing....)

Can be used to light candles on birthday donuts.

Cooler, elegant, can have their power level adjusted so you don't kill yourself, *AND* you can choose your own color.


Knowing all the color combinations we can come up with, and cross referencing the color names of the various paint companies... I want my saber's color to be the same as Secret Weapon's Baby Poop wash. ::o:

Huge crash of lightning just happened directly overhead, started pouring immediately after.

Did you make sure that the crystal was right side up when you built the lightsaber or did you set the phaser to precipitate?

An epic boss battle is about to commence. Pezler, did the background music just get really intense?

Weirdly, I had crashes of thunder roll through last night, then I crashed without posting a question....

Lifetime fireworks show: um, a couple dozen?

      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.

      Here is what I painted in 2017.
      I had a lot of fun with the terrain/scenery pieces.
      Learned a lot from painting the bust and got crazy with my Lost World project.
      Also had a blast with the diorama challenge and Rainbow Dragon Challenge.
      Here is Glitterwolf's 2017.

    • By Evilhalfling
      so 93 this year, one less than 2015, but 20 more than last year. 
      wierdly 3 large dragons were painted in each year three years.
      would have done less but went on a huge blitz of kingdom of death after getting the set in october. 

      Mostly Bones - I did count the smaller dracolisk as one of my three dragons, but I did remove legs and re-sculpt. 

      core villains from kingdom death - the Phoenix and final boss are not finished, and will take a while. 

      Survivors, starting four on the right, gradually gaining better weapons and armor.  
      the last one is built wearing armor made from the phoenix and antelope armor kits. 

      unfinshed things & 3d printed terrain.
