Most gamers have their Grey Mountain. That pile of plastic, metal, resin, or even restic (*spit*) that accumulates over the years and different projects. Most stuff gets built and added to armies, but there are usually those few models that you plan to get to, "eventually".
Recently, Ive noticed that my Grey Mountain is growing much faster than I could keep up with. Normally, Ill buy a pile of stuff, build most of it, then paint what I can before I get distracted and move on. Recently though, I havnt even gotten to the build stage before finding something new to distract me.
My excuse usually runs something like "Ill get back to them after I build these guys", or "I need this other unit for this list" or something like. One unit is on the shelf "until I trust my greenstuff skills".
So, in order to turn the pile of boxes and sprues into something I can take to a game in all its unpainted glory, Im trying to work through my Grey Mountain. Not bothering to worry about how Ill eventually paint them or even if I will. Not wasting time on putting sand on bases or priming them. Just bare plastic and an army list to get them on the table.
Id better hurry up though, I have another box of models on its way...
