Hello gentlemen. I was planning to purchase a FW CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT that just came out a month ago but I was thinking for Apoc games or even for normal games...

What is even worth putting in it? Imperial Guard doesn't have any assault troops apart from Rough Riders who obviously cannot ride in it.

Ogryns? Any other suggestions?

You could put a power blob in your CRASSUS ARMOURED TRANSPORT

or just a ton of plasma vets for triple pop and drop

Isn't the crassus a super heavy? In that case I think it's highly unlikely you're going to be able to play it in a normal game, superheavies tend to skew the balance quite a lot afaik.

I'm fine with just using it for Apocalypse but it seems like its a huge waste because IG do not get any TEQs so whats the point of a SH land raider?

For fluff purposes? What else would a platoon of Guardsmen be transported in, other than a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT.

Well I guess Ogryns would love a sturdy transport as well, but I guess the point is mostly that it can transport a 30 man unit... And it can also transport 2 cyclops thingies, whatever they are.

I believe it can hold ten rough riders as it is a super heavy transport.

if i had a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT i'd take a shed load of convicts as they get taken to their death. Or if I had allies my CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT would have an inq and retinue.

Or if really stuck my CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT would be full of ratlings

Load your CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT with as many cyclops demolition vehicles as you can get, its an awesome delivery method for them. take as amny as you can then special weapon squads with demo charges. Rock up and unelash hell on some poor bugger.

guys enough with the caps, I only just copied and pasted the name from FW website.

I wasn't gonna retype it in undercase.

I don't think the transport gets any firepoint so the units will definitely have to unload to fight.

The Dakka Gang has determined that CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT's are Matt Ward inspired awesome. Did you know that, as a DCM you get a free CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT? Why with one CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT, two CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORTs, or even three CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORTs, you can rule the battlefield, and smote the enemies of the Imperium.

The model's pretty cool too.

Honestly though, I think the best option for your CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT could be Yarrick and Ogryn: about as close to an assault unit as the Imperial Guard get. Then again there's rough riders and power blobs too. Could run your CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT alongside Demolishers for target priority problems.

How much would a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT transport if a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT could transport?

Indeed, what would a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT transport if a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT could transport?

These are the questions that should be asked at the very highest levels.

It might also be good with CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT might also be good with penal legionaires, delivered as a suicide unit. Alternatively several squads of storm troopers, rolling forward in a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT could be an interesting combination. Using CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT and Storm troopers could create the ultimate CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT plasma spam. Can you imagine the massed firepower of CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT plasma spam hitting a mech front line?

Actually, my vote for the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT has changed to also a large blob of plasma-wielding Guardsmen. However, I'd still suggest running the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT alongside Leman Russ Demolishers and maybe a Super-heavy to provide target priority issues and quite possibly allow your CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT to arrive intact and with the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSUALT TRANSPORT's cargo ready to melt things.

I wouldn't get a CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT because I don't play Imperial Guard, and so simply have no use for it. That being said, as I posted on the thread where the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT was first announced by FW, the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT is an absolutely knockout model. I really like it, and I hope you take lots of WIP pics and put them on the gallery here as you build it.
