A bit late but here is a recap of what happened in our Beerfinity weekend on may 20 and 21.
 
Day One - Saturday
 
Day one was the official Beerfinityevent followed the next day with the Treason narrative event. We were 8 players ranging from seasoned, by our standards, to new players. 
 
For the Beerfinity Saturday we had pick up games through the day and the Beerfinity glass was awared to the person who made a crit on the lowest target number. We ended up needing tie breakers as two players managed to crit on rolls needing a 1 to hit. In the end the award went to the local Steel Phalanx player, who also happened to design the glass.
 
I played Araidna for the beerfinity event and managed to get a game in against Combine army and one against a Tohaa player that visited for this event. One of the points of the beerfinity was to bring kind of wonky lists. I tried but I guess i ended up with kind of a good list anyway.
The Combine player brought a list with an Anathematic, a Charantid and a Skiavoros. Which is kind of a wonky list.
 
My list was more aimed towards trying out alot of new toys for a faction i hadn't played before.
 
I ended up beating the Combine army quite handily at the mission Armoury. Winning 10-0. Quite a few of those points were due to me not being able to fail any of about 10 save needing 12+ or worse on the Combine 3rd turn. I would still have won but not with quite the same margin.

My second game against Tohaa on the mission frontline ended up with me loosing 9-1. This was partly to the player being a good player with his army but also from me not knowing how Tohaa works. I need more practice with or against them to get a better feeling of how to beat them.
 
In between these games were beers and Burgers. A true craftsmanship from one of the players. Home made bread, home grinded meat and much more. He really put in that extra effort to lift the event to a higher standard. Well done mate! Most of us attending helped with something but the main effort was his.

Day Two - Sunday
This day was the day of the acctual tournament which I was managing as well as playing. I took my Bakunin lists that I wrote about before. 
 
First of I got to play my nemesis Muffin that brought a Neoterra Squalo list. It was a really tight game but in the end he managed to snatch a victory in Annihilation with a score of 6-2. Bran Do Castro put in alot of good work, as did the swasts. The Squalo and the Machinist was the main players of the Neoterran forces.

Second game was against our second Combine Army player. He brought a well rounded list sporting a Charantid, Kerr Nau, alot of Remotes and some more toys. This games was really tight. Ending in a draw only Thanks to my opponent being greedy and exposing Kerr to a mine which killed him.
So Safe Area ended 3-3.
 
Last game was against our newest player bringing his Steel Phalanx to Hunting Party.
Not much happened in game actuall. I managed to isolate his Lieutenant and finish both my classified objectives and he managing to pull of a Kidnapping. 
In the end game game finished with me winning 6-1.  Other than that we mostly moved around, shot some but didnt end up doing much.
 
This netted me a 5th place out of eight. Not even close to what I would like but as it was my own event I am ok with it. The top three were Merovingian, Combine Army and Yu Jing.
 
All in all, a Fantastic event woth lots of great games, great friends and alot of fun.
