Soo my friend always play on 2x5 wolf guards in terminatour armours with shields and hammers, plus cyclone missle launchers on both squads. How to deal with them, because they always just make two of my precisious ships just explode in the first turn usually before i can ever move them.

If you have 12 vehicles losing two doesn't matter. Afterwards it should be easy to run from those walking hammernators.

At a 1000pts that would make up close to half is army. Run away and ignore it. Go fight the other half of his army with what is left of your entire force. Its that or you stick it out and try and slay the terminators, killing of 10 will be hard though at that point level. I play a Dark Angels player and when he drops in Deathwing i make a choice to either run away, if that is viable, i make sure the other half of his force isn't involved at all and I stick to it and start slaying terminators, chucking everything at them, all my shots, I've sent in Incubi before as well and they managed to come out ok on the other side.

Yup, just ignore it.
Pretend it's and old friend you hate. Move on to talk to the better friends and run when he comes back to interrupt the conversation.

Replace "friend" with "enemy", "conversation" and "talk" with "killing/fighting" and "better" with "weaker".

Yup hit the old ignore button on them. The funny thing about playing against drop pods with dark eldar is this:

The whole point of dropping the pod in your territory is to tie you up, and this works against a lot of armies. When it lands the gooey contents spill out and threaten most things in a given deployment zone, so the general thought is, "Oh no! I better kill that before it destroys everything!"

Don't fall for silly monkeigh tricks. As an Archon you write off the two squads who were pathetic enough to get downed by banana/feces chucking monkeys, and move your vehicles forward. You can move your vehicles up to 30" and straight over terrain.

If their loadout is how you say then they cost almost 400 points. I'm not sure how he even fits any troops into the list, but I'd just flat out, kill those, and have his 800 points try to catch up.

Also, are you using flicker fields? Because two shots at S8 with only an AP of 3 isn't that scary. He still needs a 5+ to explode, which is only about a 30% chance. With flickerfield it goes under 20%. Granted, probability isn't exact, but you should only see a cyclone launcher take out a vehicle 1 in 5 games on the first turn.

Oh and if you do get first turn make sure your forces are dispersed and not to close together, so he can only reasonably target one unit with the drop pod. Really pisses space marines off. Heck do it in your deployment too.

If done right you basically turn his terminators into a really expensive, half-as-effective devastator squad.
