It's my birthday in a week and I'll be getting some money. The problem is that I'm hesitating between getting an Army Transport Division case on a discount or more models to finalize my infantry since the problem I'll be unable to get anything for a long long time afterwards.
Can you guys help me?:)

Models. You'll have more actual toys to play with, then. There are cheap alternatives to actually transporting them to and from the gaming store. Cardboard box with eggshell foam comes to mind.

Models unless you totally need the case.

But models are just awesome

Time vs effort vs money

It depends what is more important to you, for me I dont want to go around hunting for foam so I just would get the case.

And dont bother getting more models if you havent painted the ones you have, it just adds to the masses of grey ;)

I'm with that one guy. If what you have isn't painted, get the case.

So far everything's painted and my IG having been making that case full. The case is a Mastercraft toolcase with foam inside.

Then let the process of elimination guide your decision. :)

Buy the models....save about 15 and go and buy one of those plastic tool boxes. Go nick a toilet roll from your bog and voila....army carrier on the cheap :)

There is always more models, but getting a good case is a one time thing, and it will make all the difference of your models not getting smashed up.

I did the whole tool box w/foam thing, the second I got my sabol army transport I never looked back.

This should have been a poll lol. Get the min's, as others have said, there is more ways to transport your mini's, so get more of them.

Once you have a case to carry them, all they will do is sit there, doing nothing, at least with mini's you can paint, convert and put together.

egg carton shells, or foam or what not is just as good as a case. They both just sit there and do nothing once not used.

Get a part-time job, then you can have both. :p

If you have metal models a good case is worth it's weight in models.
