For me it's when I get to a point where I only have the ridiculous things to buy. For my orks, I reached a point where I have enough boyz that it knocked me sick every time I saw how many were unpainted. I still pick up stuff for them (after 4 years) though, because I love orks. I want a load of FW stuff, grot tanks, battle fortress, some of the planes a few more stompas (have 1 at the mo). If I was loaded and didn't have to work I swear I'd have more orks than any man should have, I just love making stuff for them, converting tanks, etc.
My SW I've painted up almost (... not quite) as I've picked them up, and nearly have a great company. For these I've worked to a fluffy feel to them. With the bit in the codex saying about people caught by redmaw's great company being literally ripped to shreds, I've got ten wolves, 7 thunderwolf cavalry, five wulfen models, and a big leaning to close combat over firepower. Left to get for them is another Land Raider, two preds, four rhinos and three drop pods and that's the lot. Have a few DKoK fellas I'm using as the PDF too, but not too many. My aim is to have a full great company + armour and flexibility.
Grey Knights - my mate flogged me a load still boxed, I want to get more, but at the same time, the rest are just sat on a shelf base coated and washed. No aim for these. There's about 2500 points and they'll probably stay like that... although I do want some of the small flyers...
Red Corsairs - got the DV boxed set, passed on the DA to people, and started a tiny Red Corsairs force. It's now at 2,500 pts. I don't particularly want to, but probably will end up buying loads... :-|
