Eat a good breakfast and stay hydrated. It's amazing how much more enjoyable getting "knocked around" is when you are well fed.

Anyway, list stuff:

 

DE really have mobility, but they need to pick their battles. Don't feel compelled to attempt assault (or move into rapid range) with everything, and do not worry about fleeing the vicinity of certain opponents. Find the opponent/situation where you can really showcase your high initiative DE (and amazing shooting).

 

Never forget to throw grenades in the shooting phase. The grenade rules are amazing in 7th. Make sure to throw one whenever it's in range. They can be snapped at flyers and used in overwatch (non-blast versions, only one per squad, but it helps).

 

Beyond that, I suggest focusing the first turn on disabling as much as possible, rather than destroying. Ideally, you want to force the majority of their shooting to be snapping at you turn 2 (or their turn 1 if you go first). Though, if they only have a few AA options, especially interceptor AA options, your list really needs them destroyed turn 1. Your flyers are just too fragile.

Grotesques kick ass. So do voidraven bombers.

 

Your list is going to need help getting to grips w the enemy since the grotesques have no transport. Ride them close to terrain on the approach and once the planes arrive, crush all before you. The talos are similarly exposed. Interposing venoms and raiders can give you mobile coveer for them.
