in my opinion, I like them and since GW wont give us access to the stormtalon and stormraven we have to make do, but I've found my nephlim to be very effective against a variety flyers and tanks...and even popping the independent characters that fail look out sir rolls

Won't give you access to?! Heck that's like a Space Wolves player saying GW won't give them access to the Dark Shroud, Thunderfire Cannon or Librarian Dreadnoughts.

Also, you have flyers, Space Wolves don't.

I do not use any of the DA flyers in any of my lists. I would love to but the cost:effect ratio is just lacking. I would be more than happy to let a wolf player take a nephalim crap fighter outside of the force org chart / codex just so he could waste his points.

But then again a Dark Talon flying over a banner of devastation never hurts.

A dakka banner has a range of 12 inches. The guns have a range of 24 and the talon must move over 12 inches. Now if you put that into a scenario where you are shooting at troops then you can only benifet from the banner for 2 rounds max if you want to hit anything.

Also... For the points cost of the talon I would rather take a land raider and give the banner some protection.

This! I would be happy to let any space wolf player use the DA fliers anytime!

The Banner of devastation with the hurricane bolter is nice... however you're only using the benefit of it 1-2 times a game...

Stormtalon, cheap in money and points, billion options to take, can do hover strikes... just amazing flyer.

Hmm Space Wolves Flyers, I don't have a lot of faith in GW making something that doesn't look stupid. Not really a fan of flyers myself, Soulstorm flashbacks. I'd rather GW give Space Wolves a land weapon that is good for shooting down flyers rather than giving them an actual flyer, after all if fighting on foot was good enough for the Primarch. But having access to the Stormraven Gunship would be nice, from what I've read in some Space Wolves books they mostly use flyers to make planet fall and generally transport troops.
