Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have a Raven Guard army that I want to play as if they were striking swiftly from Thunderhaks etc, so I want to DS as much as possible. Only my scouts and Devs start in the board. I have assault marines and a landspeeder to DS, and a command squad and dread to Drop pod. Drop Pods are no problem (apart from buying them...) but DS is seemingly really naff at the moment.
I don't really like the idea of my cc assault marines sitting as a nice ordnance shaped target to an army full of starcannon.
So how do you all work with Deep Strike?

DS them behind cover, and you can put tac squads in drop-pods and use those as cover when you disembark...

you can better use drop pods because they make sure you donÂ´t stand in ordance formation and they can be used as cover.
they will cost some points but that is nothing compared to the fact youÂ´ll never lose them cause of cover or enemy troops.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Starcannon are not blast weapons how close together you stand shouldnt make a differance its Plasma Cannon and Demolishers you need to watch out for.
