I don't want to sound overly callous here, but these are in fact combatants in the modern landscape, as distasteful as the subject might be. A scenario where a small unit commander is trying to stop a suicide jihadist (or ISIS) commando determined to kill himself is entirely withing the bounds of reality. Yet, there are no figures I can find that depict this type of individual. I'm not trying to be overly gorish or nihilistic, i do think it's a tragic turn of events, but still, I'm surprised I've never seen a purpose built figure for a suicide bomber. Anyone know if I'm wrong or not?

Not 28mm, but miniatures have been made… :)

Once again, depending on how you paint him.

Walt,
It is a valid scenario, but is a dedicated figure really needed? It seems that, by definition, a suicide bomber looks like any other civilian until he rips open his jacket. Unless you're playing solo, why not just use a standard civilian figure and secretly designate him/her as the bomber?

The militia grenadier pack from spectre probably has the best figure to use as a suicide bomber. The figure has a pouch on his chest full of grenades.

Devil Dog was the only company I have seen put out a suicide bomber, but they are no longer in production. You could try ebay or the flea markets at the conventions for old devil dog stuff.

How about pretty much any figure with a flak vest, and then perhaps a head swap?

Any civilian figure would; they want to blend in to be effective.

Reaper's Ned Lewinsky?

IIRC The Assault Group had a 28mm bomber about 5 years ago.
