This new standard its seemingly becoming quite a popular choice but I'm really not sure if it combines with missile troops as some people seem to think.

The Armour piercing special rule states that wounds caused in close combat by a model with this spell rule inflicts a further -1 armour save modifier. It then goes onto qualify about weapons with armour piercing rule only applying attacks or ranged hits as appropriate.

The standard says that models in the unit have the armour piercing rule rather than their weapons so I'm interested to see what people think seems another conflict between writing and Intention.

As you say yourself the special rule Armour piercing is quite clear that it only affects close combat attacks made by the model with the rule.
Since the banner bestows Armour piercing on the models in the unit, they can therefore only utilise it in close combat.
