Yeah the bolter banner is incredible at making a no go zone on the board but it only works for infantry, if you take tanks then it messes it all up which makes you take a balance of bolters and special weapons, its not broken at all, just pretty darn good
It's pretty terrible, so no, not even near broken. It makes an army very static, and it's hugely fragile for how expensive it is. If it's on Ravenwing, fear it. If it's on Greenwing, it's pretty shitty most of the time. If it's on Deathwing, it's probably the most gimmicky but most dangerous, but bear in mind that putting out a shit-tonne of Bolter shots is just about all the army can do due to the sheer points investment of three Land Raider Crusaders and a Deathwing Command Squad with the Standard, as well as somebody with a Power Field Generator to stand behind them. Still, scary thought.
