Reading some of the new rules for giants on the UK board, cause lord knows the US one isn't that good anymore and it came to my attention that VC armies can apparently us them now. So just curious on who would use on and whats your fluff behind having it?
The fluff: It's a zombie giant, summoned by the vampire!
I personally don't like using DoW in other armies. If your army does not include a Cannon or Giant it just does not feel right to have it.
Yeah, but there is something undeniably cool about a zombie giant. As for the cannon point, yeah I agree with that one.

I have a personal affinity for the Dogs of War and I think that they really ought to be used more often, if only to add more variety to Warhammer. With a little imagination, it's no problem to come up with fluffy reasons to include them in your armies. As mentioned earlier, Vampires don't have any problem conscripting the Dogs into their armies, and it's nearly as easy for others (Dwarfs have gold, Skaven have cheese, and chaos have GODS).
I'm too lazy to come up with a witty sig.
now im definitely getting a giant!
I don't like the use of things like cannons to plug gaps in army lists, but really a giant is kinda seperate to most DoW and is fairly well balanced.
The thought of a azombie giant or even a giant slave to a vampire army is really cool, the plastic model is brilliant as it is and it would fit into the army fairly well as a replacement for the Varghulf except the giant can negate ranks. It is a bit of a fire magnet, but its so tough that it deserves to be and can survive quite a pounding.
Good fun to try out a few times, I am definitely planning on gettong one at some stage.
I wouldn't use a Giant (other than for the modelling possibilities) because I'd rather have a Varhghulf.. but I'd love to have a Cannon in my army; I can never find the points, though.

I was thinking of the same thing, a zombie giant would really look nice, but i dunno if its a better choice then a varghulf. I don't really like the idea of a cannon in a VC army, but thats just my opinion
