Usually it would be hrd for an enemy to get that many out as they do bleed quite a lot. They have huge burst damage though, especially with 3 of them. That's gonna make set-up teams awkward so I'd rely on less fragile things like sternguard and ASM to bleed them like mad. Sternguard are gonna be very important as well as things like thunder-hammer, stims/power axe on apothecary (stim your asm/sterns), libby to tie them up and proc inspiration buffs to make sterns do even more damage, master crafted bolter+mines on techmarine (could place mines around a p dev squad to bait them in and mines will nearly wipe them due to how close together their squad is, and if they don't go for the p dev, welp, p dev will annihilate them too).

You're having trouble versus this because you fast tech to Terminators all the time ;) Go for ranged Termies with Assault Cannons. Tacs and ASM's until you get there.

Shotgun Scouts with Sergants. Have at least 2 of them. Get close, burst out your damage, and even use your blasts if you want to. Scouts will bleed less likely and even they do, it will be cheaper. Meanwhile, you will sink your enemies economy. 3 Strom Trooper reinforcement costs 120 req. Also, gives you detection to spot any sneaky Strom Troopers around.

I'd rather fear 3x long range storm troopers :)
