I don't use Stormtroopers/Kasrkins.
So, I was wondering just how the fine Imperial Commanders deploy your Stormtroopers/Kasrkins? I've got a few other tricks so I don't Deep Strike them, and Infiltrating... I've never really seen the use in, so I don't Infiltrate either. In all honesty, my squad of Kasrkins deploys on my table edge, along the flanks of my regular Infantry Platoons. Maybe that's dumb, maybe it's brilliant, I'm not casting aspersions.
I usually just deploy mine kept inside their chimera until they're right there to disperse out of the tank and begin blasting everything with their hellguns, plasma, and the tank's weapons.
I'll be damned before the soldiers of the Emperor are just left to rot!
Last words of Colonel Densit from the Rahaxin 19th
"DISS NOT THE EMPEROR'S POINTED STICK, HERETIC!"
If it doesn't work with the Emperor. Then it's been officially Karmooned!!!
BEWARE THE POWER OF THE LIGHT-BRIGHT!
I usally like to keep them next to their chimera to bolster the gun line. They hop into their transport for last minute reinforcements/objective grab
"Thank him who puts me loath to this revenge on you who wrong me not for him who wrongd"
I tend to keep them in their chimera operating on the flanks to take exposed objectives/and or enemy units. The new transport rules make embarked passengers just that little bit safer.
What Guardsmen dont want to hear...
"Ok boys, time to fix bayonets!"
Infiltrate my stormies into cover and fire away with their plasmas. Just be careful of auspexes.
If my stormtroopers were ever going to be deployed on the table they'd be called "Grenadiers" and would start scoring, whilst deploying normally (Chimera'd up or not)
It's not even a extra doctrine (Read FAQ = Grenadiers comes with stormtroopers doctrine free)

Misunderstood an above post, edited out.
Anything I can say would just repeat others, but I'd go Grenadiers, if just for the ability to score, so no DS or infil.

I vote for Chimera too so I couldn't vote, and I only really take Stormies as Grenadiers. Chose 'normal deployment' but Chimeras was a bit of a big option to miss out the poll!
In my case i'm paying 30 points for an Infiltrating Macharian Cross tactic which is still in needs of refining. I get a 10 man strong Storm Trooper squad with melta guns or plasma guns, still debating whether or not, and cause it to be a huge threat to the enemy, hoping my opponent places a unit to counter it, then before the game moves i'll move them back a bit and replace it with a unit to counter what he was trying to do. All in all i'm finding a technique to use this tactic so that hopefully it will work.
