space wolves terminators indeed don't deep strike, and rather require a droppod to get down. it has to do with their distrust for such technology (first mentioned in the 3rd edition dex,which found also be found floating around on the --- ).

I find that Dark Eldar work nicely for a gunline list. The fact that they can't hold objectives isn't really an issue, since all they need to do is screw over my opponent's plans in as many ways as they can (which, being Dark Eldar, is a quite extensive list), and the whole "units might not get to do anything due to suspicion" doesn't really matter after turn 1, since they're likely at least halfway across the table by then.
When His armies march to war, we make up the tip of the spear! When His armies are in retreat, we're the ones who bring up the rear! Imperial Guard Assault Corps! Show no mercy! Show no fear! Imperial Guard Assault Corps! Oorah! Oorah! Death is here!
Yeah, if thats the case I'm usually looking to place them in cover as much as possible.
What I have found though is that the meta around here are using drop pod to get first blood anyway, so giving them a large wolf unit to deal with can disrupt their plans. Normally they go for a chimera or another soft target with melta guns!
Plus if they dont get first blood then theirs a greater chance of me assaulting them with the remaining wolves!
We're Imperial Guardsmen....we're not supposed to get armour saves!
