You can't go wrong with any of those transport choices. For a LR my personal preference is the Godhammer, followed by the Crusaider.

There is ONE exception:

If your group allows ForgeWorld and reasonable proxies (mine does)...

FW has a Drop Pod (I forget the name) that is an Assault vehicle. It's quite a few more points, but it DOES give you the possibility of a Turn 1 Assault, considering the normal Drop Pod rules. When we're going to use one of these, we just use a regular GW Drop Pod and make it clear to our opponent what it is.

My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Supposedly Smaug is "The Most Enormous Dragon We've Ever Made" as per the White Dwarf.

Added you on Twitter (same name as here). I am sure this force will be great in the end!

EDIT:
rumours tell about a three foot model at $490. They may well know what they're doing.
If that turns out to be true, this Dragon is going to be HUGE.

Just a quick note: Currently Death Co. are Troops. And if you make the Dread a DC dread, it is a troop choice as well

Hmm.
Granted, it's been a while: last time I built a BA army it was legal.
How long ago was that switch made?

Thanks.
