Go for it! I run one in my dark elf army (he goes by the name Garguf the Unreasonably Flatulent). He's not the most reliable unit in the game, but he's great fun!

Last game I used him in, he ate a beast heard, then wen ton to play golf with furies most of the rest of the game (a consistant one kill with the 'swing with club' attack each turn). Then a doom bull came too close and got 'thump with club'ed. Good times!

I currently run a giant called Miscast in my empire army.

They are strong, and specialise at killing big monsters (just look at their table when fighting them...) or elite troops, they are also nigh-on unbreakable. They are vulnerable to shooting, high toughness and W will only get you so far, they are surprisingly fragile if the kitchen sink is thrown at them, and the large target is great for bolt throwers.

Good luck, (if you didnt hear me) GOOD LUCK!!!

My favorite part about the new giants is you can convert the hell out of them. Like my zombie and slave giants. The zombie one has his gut torn open with intestines and organs hanging out while the slave giant has a huge chain restrainment system modeled onto him. It was so much fun to make them.

giants are great
Thanks, Chaos Mortal

Yes, that's why they are called giants:D

Giants have the great ability to be killed and take 2 rounds of shooting which the rest of your army doesn't get or get in combat and wrecks units, your other units might not be able to.

Errr... apply the zombie rules (psychology, being slow etc.) to a giant, substract some points from his value... and revise the action table?
That should be pretty simple.
And he sounds to me like a rare choice.

You could eventually, add the cloud of stench, much like the Zombie Dragon has. That would seem fair, and make him more interesting.

Don't forget that that would make Bretonnian knights hate him, being fans of perfumes as they are... :D
