Rather than takin the land raider crusaders as dedicated transports, why not take the land raider formation which allows them to ignore everything but immobilized and explodes results on the vehicle damage table?
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

I've played the landradier formation and wasn't too impressed. Having to stay bunched up and unable to grab separate objectives is its biggest flaw. It's nice vs super heavies but that's about it. Msu ruins its effectiveness. Think he'd be better off putting his chapter master with the assault centurions rather than a five man assault squad. Normal marines have zero durability now days especially five guys. Plus the centurions could use an invulnerable save vs ap2. Plus CM would count as T5 with the unit.

I think ill take out the assault marines and replace them with scouts (with cameo cloaks) and throw the chapter master with the centurions.
so the scout stay in the back and grab objectives.
