How cheesy is it to have a giant in your VC army? I think about it and it makes sense only cause vampires want to kill everything but on the other hand would giants really want to work with vampires?
build it as an undead giant...much like the other zombies/skellies/etc in the VC army, it wouldn't have a choice but to serve it's "master"...
I know I couldn't make one this nice, but at least it might give you an idea or two...

I guess a giant could work just like hiring any other dogs of war in your vampire army.. vampires are not zombies, they are not braindead. If fielding a giant in your army would serve your purpose, they i think they would manage to keep their hunger under control... who says that they are not eaten after the battle has been won?
On the other hand, fielding one in a Lahmia army would be best i think, considering the Lahmia bloodline powers like domination e.tc. the giant is just overwhelmed by the beauty of the Lahmia vampire and will do everything for her.. sounds reasonable or?
Everslick, that is actually the best reason I've ever seen for including a giant in a VC army. I wouldn't normally consider DoW in my army, but with the domination-like powers of the Lahmians it could make sense. Shame I play Carsteins... might have to try the Lahmians some time.
Yeah, i'd like to refer to it as the "King Kong Syndrome"
You know, huge monkey falling in love with a man sized, beautiful, woman.. that could work for Lahmia as well.
I have actually only played Lahmia once but their bloodline powers didn't really impress me, mostly due to the fact that i faced a bunch of dark elves in that combat with leadership out of this world. After that fight, i started to select bloodlines depending on my opponent.
That actually wouldn't be that hard to do, it's just the painting that makes it look really good. The intensines hanging and rotting flesh are pretty simple green stuff conversions, and the rest is just painting.
I did see a really cool custom (I mean, not GW) zombie giant once, where the guy made a cool rotting head, among other things.
Overall I think it's a cool idea, and like Everslick said, would be the same as hiring Dogs of War or anything else mortal.
