I've never been able to get the Bomber to work for me. I like the idea of lobbing bombs down field out of range but I always deviate into my own troops (or in that direction). The fact that it doesn't have arcing fire astounds me, and as such it always seems like he's way too exposed getting LOS on decent targets. Even with the Impaler humping his leg, the 12" range just doesn't seem like enough. The enemy is on him before he can get a target worth his points and then next round he's perma engaged, or everything else is.
As I've seen many lists that have the bomber as the only heavy, I also wonder how exactly they can function as a heavy armor cracker. Yeah, POW 16 is great and it's boostable, but it never seems like enough. In melee is pillow fisted and even with a buff doesn't seem to do enough damage.
I love the sculpt, love the potential, but he has never worked for me and as such I'd rather find a way to put a pyre troll in the list :/ Help me!
