I'm considering which heavy support unit(s) I'm going to add next to my Death Guard army. 

I already have a Leviathan with x2 Grav Bombard and I'm thinking that the Deredeo would be an excellent second offensive tool. I know I could probably get 2 PBC for the price of the one Deredeo but I'm not convinced two would be better. The Deredeo could also act similarly to the Myphitic Blight-Hauler but instead of giving a cover save for units nearby it provides the 5+ invuln. 

What do you guys think?

I’ve been thinking of a dual grav leviathan myself! I do like dreads with the DG trait keeps them mobile

For sure man! The Levi is a beast at making things of all types disappear. I just needs to get there. The Deredeo is super versatile in that it has very power weapons at close, medium, and long range. The Greater Havoc Launcher does not need line of sight to the target in order to fire at it. I think it has a lot of similarities to the PBC but is way better at shooting.

I run 2 x crawlers and 2 x Leviathans. 

 

Both Crawlers have flamers and are used very aggressively.

 

The Leviathans  - 1 with 2x grav the other with 2 x Butcher Cannon.

 

The leviathans put out more shots than the deredeo for a higher point investment.  

 

The deredeo is a cool looking model though.

I really love Deredeos as they can really dish out some decent firepower especially with Butcher Cannon array and greater havoc launcher, tried out both but I really prefer the havoc launcher since it can target out of sight units like a crawler whilst the veil requires a whole squad to be completely within 6 to get the save so it  only will be able to give one small squad the inv save and have to keep them hugging the dread most of the game. Love the FW dreads mainly for the fact they can constantly keep up with my infantry and still fire without any penalties, Crawlers can be alright I just don't like using them as I prefer fielding a more infantry based force with Dreads being the only vehicles with maybe a blight hauler or 2

Another thought might be to await the FAQ and see what nerf hits the crawlers!

I agree on the waiting but I don't think they will be getting a direct nerf tbh

That sounds absolutely nasty! Papa Nurgle is pleased!
I was tempted with including 2 leviathans in my list with those exact same builds.. It's just a lot of points between the two and if I want to include Mortarion as well there isn't a whole lot more that can fit in a list.

Pretty much exactly what I'm thinking. The Deredeo also provide some very nice anti-air capability that DG is kinda lacking in.
