Default Deep Strike - Who uses it?

I love the deep strike rules. It helps you to deal with some of those pesky errors of judgements you might make or that skimmer that manages to keep out of the way of your main guns. It also helps if your not to good at tactics cause it can be a rewarding gamble. Am I wrong? And how many of you actually use drop pods?Cause I think they are stunning!

ive used it when using a drone squad. It was perfect as it put me right next to my mates farseer. hehe 8 twin linked pulse carbines finished him quickly:P

Drone squads are the best for just sheer annoyance.

I love Deep Strike! In fact, I have 4 units that can Deep Strike in my Tyranid army - 3 Raveners and a Lictor. The Lictor is especially good because he can Assault the turn he Deep Strikes, giving the opponent no chance to move that Whirlwind away.

I use my deepstriking drones to drop in between my main line and an enemy assault, buying that extra turn. I also use my deep striking Sun Forge to take care of pesky tanks.

I have only used deep strike a few times.

Deep striking lictors is wonderful.

But I have used it on an assault squad once.
...it didn't work so well...

I singlehandedly one an Apocolypse game for our side against GW with a deep strike. The staff had left one of their objective markers guarded only by a landspeeder and a tank. This was the end of the 2nd turn (also known as the last turn, in this case). My co-commander and I thought up a plan during the ridiculously long assault phase at the beginning of turn 2. We deepstruck two Helian suits in to claim the objective, blowing up the landspeeder, then brought in our Pirhana from the board edge. Combined with our friend's Falcon, we destroyed the Predator as well!

So yeah... Deepstrike can pwn sometimes. However, if we'd scattered one more inch, we would have been out of range of the Landspeeder with our Fusions and rapid-fire. So it's pretty risky, too.

Deep striking is fine for models that are planning to shoot at those pesky opponents hiding behind a building.

But its pretty bad with units that are going to charge, since they cant and so they are stuck in the open being shot at the next turn if they arent careful.

Do I use deep strike? An 11 for 14 hit ratio on my scatter die over the last weekend says "HELL YES!"

The most common users are my drones, who plummet behind enemy lines on their near-kamikaze missions to disrupt the plans of my opponents.

My Stonecutters also make a good deal of use of this rule. Most of the time it's "safe" deep strike in drop pods or termies being guided in by tele homer
