Ah well, I didn't make it.
I knew the chances of getting it done were slim to none, but I can honestly say I gave it a shot. Over the course of four after work evenings, I got the following done:
ASSEMBLED & PRIMED
2x Full Armored Rifle Platoons
In addition, I got all the vehicles basecoated with my airbrush.
Armored Rifle Company Command HQ, including additional Bazooka Team
Platoon of 4x M4A1 Sherman tanks
Between the assembled and finished models, this is the entire initial 1000 point force. All things considered, it's not a bad effort at all. I've got some models I can borrow for tomorrow's Market Garden launch, and I think with a holiday weekend's effort I can get the remainder of my first 1000 points knocked out. I'm thinking of a Priest battery and a recon section to round out 1500 points.
Until next time...
