Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well my friend is a little bit of a powergamer, he brought tomb guard against my ogres however they don't work as ogres have 3 wounds not 2.
He says he will now buy a tomb giant and unsure how to beat it?
Any hints would be very useful.
The Bone Giant isn't generally considered the most effective unit. His armour save is pretty low and I believe his Unstopable Assault only works on a charge.
He is a large target, as such shooting is a bit easier against him.
Most people on here will say Bone Giants aren't the powergaming option, the catapult tends to be the deal breaker in TK armies.

Neither Tomb Guard, or Bone Giants are powergaming options. Both are a little overcosted really. Its the Catapult you really want to watch out for, and Ushabti on the charge. These are the best weapons TKs have against Ogres, anything else tends to just bounce off. Don't worry about the Giant, just use some 'Belchers to bring it down, or swamp it in combat with a few Ogres.
And make use of some Gorgers to pick out the Hierophant Hehe

Tomb guard are a powergaming unit? Really? What's that make Dickenhof Guard? And a bone giant is about the worst rare in the game. At least the worst rare in TK.

In my games I class Tomb Guard as almost essential rather than powergaming as their performance in the past (sometimes very lucky) has made my opponents wary of a big block of TG.
They know it's going to have Rakaph, they know it's going to have at least a Prince in there with something hitty and they know it'll be resurrected whenever I can.
Generally my opponents stay well clear of the Killing Blow block - but with only light armour and shield they do need bringing back quite often.
I love them
On the plus side... Your friend will stop using the bone giant as soon as he finds out how bad it is...
