In at least 2-player, where you can play 6 dwarf heroes and plenty of allies, Dain is probably the best hero yet printed. He blocks better than any hero in the game, and he typically "quests" for at least 2-3 at the start of the game without exhausting. He does require you to build around him some, but he's well worth it.

He is the King of dwarves. 11 threat doesn't seem high at all (could easily have been 12). Not particularly crazy about the image, however.

Would Bombur Get +2 Atk And Willpower or just 1 of each if he counts as 2 dwarfs

I believe he gets 2, otherwise there would seem to be little reason to be counting him as 2 dwarfs at all.

Bombur's ability is to allow him to count as 2 dwarfs for the purposes of abilities that go "If you control X dwarfs,..." I do not believe that this would extend to Dain's ability, therefore just +1 to Atk & Willpower.
