I like it. I'd be a toss up between this and the astropath for my favourite so far.

You can have a lasting and maybe singe your opponent before you are taken as a hostage and tortured for eternity, or you can wear this vest and take a few with you and have no pain .

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.

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.

You'd think tanks would squash infantry in the melee...
