Shaggoth or Giant

So, I'm looking at maybe including a big monster in my list as I grow past the 1000 point mark. Something nasty to mash things up good and fight other big nasties.

By the looks, our two big monsters are the Dragon Ogre Shaggoth and the Chaos Giant. Not really going for a dragon because I don't want to spend the points on the rider. Ditto on the Manticore.

Personally, I like the look of the Dragon ogre Shaggoth much more. TBH, I'll eventually get this model just to paint and stick on my desk, probably. ;) But that's not the matter at hand.

Great Weapon makes him Strength 8.
Scaly Skin and Light Armor gives him a 4+ Armour save
Immune to Lightning and can gain Frenzy
More expensive

Interesting attack options
Can be marked for mild customization
Stubborn and Leadership 10
No save whatsoever

Tough 5, 6 wounds
ITP, Large Target, Terror

So, I want to hear your experiences, opinions and suggestions. Oh, and why not? Which model do you think looks better? :)

I definitely think the giant has a place in a competitive setting. You need to use him to your advantage, and he can mess with your opponents mind greatly. Playing a giant is difficult and shouldnt be done by the point and move player, but he definitely has a place in the army.
