A certain proportion of the bombs are duds; if your bomb's a dud, then lucky you, you're pardoned!

Rogue Trader art work. The look was supposed to resemble WWII Japanese Kamikaze pilots complete with the hachimaki headbands.

One of the very first games of Rogue Trader I played (maybe THE first) was an Ork vs. Imperial guard battle put on by a group in Omaha, around 1989.

I remember some human bombs heading to the Ork line and being shot down; an Imperial Ogryn ran up and tossed one of the bodies into to the Orks the next turn, and somehow it got set off. That was such a fun game and a great intro into 40K. I can't recall if there was a GM or if the players just got along well enough to work out a narrative game like that.

Interesting to see Victoria do one.

I think GW has stayed clear of 'suicide bombers' in recent years (fantasy Nippon had them too IIRC) because, well, the joke ain't all that funny now.

But that is a great model.

I just need to address my tub of Vic minis from 2 years ago first.

I like that model quite a bit - if I do a penal legion, he's in. I like the random salvation. On the other hand, yeah, hits home a bit more than it did 20 years ago, though they've been around since explosives first appeared.

That''s awesome Dr Mathias
Human bomb to human handgrenade.

And yeah, if I had to fight the dark eldar, or slaaneshi cultists! better a blaze of glory than risk capture!

'I the perspective of the universe I can see them being commonly employed even outside of penal units. Then again I can see the guard using nerve agents and other really nasty stuff to achieve victory. And of course kill the hated traitor, mutant and xeno.
The only pickle I have with 40k is the Imperium does seem so zealous and that using such extreme means wouldn't even be considered before being employed.
You could probably draft volunteers.

Looking forward to adding some of these to the armor pile. Like the driver hatch. Always thought they should have updated the Chimera drivers front view hatch when they redid the kit.
