Is the Storm Talon ONLY for Codex Space Marines? I am getting conflicting answers. Straighten me out and note your source. No Storm Talon for DA and BT. No storm talong for BA, SW ...

Storm Talon is currently ONLY for the C:SM book.
Source is the WD article in which it is listed, and at least one FAQ (IIRC) specifically addresses that as well.

Has anyone heard rumors about other armies getting a storm talon or variation? I did see a few rumors that DA will NOT get the storm talon but possibly a tempest like speeder.

there are no current rumors to include the Talon in any other walk beyond basic space Marines.
I would be surprised to see that change, as little allows games Workshop to sell the newer kits otherwise.

I am interested to see the Dark Angel addition.

Yeah, I'm pretty pumped about the DA stuff. I'm trying not to get too caught up in the rumors, but I have read about a new flyer, land speeder variant, and lots of plasma (terminators, predator). Whoops, wrong section for this Embarassed

I busted out my WD and noticed on the inside it does explicitly state official update to Codex: Space Marines. I also read the latest FAQ 1.1 which contains the following:

Quote :
Q: Is the Stormtalon Gunship available to any armies other than those
chosen from Codex: Space Marines?
A: No.

Thanks

Don't worry about not posting specifics. You got me the answer I needed then I got off my butt and dug for the specific sources.

Has anyone seen a storm talon used effectively on the table? Is the Escort Craft useful or just cool? With the typhoon it would have some fire power but at the cost of 155 pts.

I've played against one, but the player was a noob and just flew it up the middle of the board, needless to say it did not survive another turn.

The Storm Talon is a useful support tool or distractor unit...no hover hinders its play but it is effective.

equipped with the skyhammer missile system, it is a decent anti-air platform as well...if a bit overcosted.
allies do it better, and now with the DA plethora of (relatively) cheap and easily allied Flakk delivery?
well, it can be a fun model at least.
I have two, but not counting on them to be any more than a one-shot anti-air/distraction unit (as Edge put it) for fun games.
