More likely just computer mistake but on the US site the O&G section the giant was placed in the special section.

I hate the pregnant giant.

Though the orcs fielding a pile of them would be interesting to say the least, lol.

The orcs have always had a kind of special relationship with giants. But for them to become special would be strnage, though...

I would say its impossible unless they are 0-2. Still, would be a fun sight otherwise.

I doubt they could keep 4 giants in the same army without having them stomp the entire force, or stomp eachother. So I think they are supposed to be rare still.

I'd allow five giants. It'd be a fun game, at least against my skyre-self destruct list. Skaven guns misfiring everywhere, and giants falling on their asses left right and center. Throw in a pizza and a few beers and that's an afternoon's entertainment. :)

Giants are still Rare in the new army book.

The online store has core/special/rare all screwed up these days. It's probably just an off by one error - but are woof elf eternal guard regiments really going to take up a lord/hero slot? Core wardancers? Special Treemen? :P

The giant is listed especially poorly. he's not even listed for Beasts of Chaos, and they're one of the armies that get him the LEGIT way(not DoW whoring)

The rare choices are going to be the same in the new book as were in the old book right?

Trolls
Giants
Pump wagon
Doom driver

5 specials?

What am I missing? Are the rules changing from 4 specials to 5?

What?! Doom driver? Is that some OAP Orc or goblin on the relevant mount? :p


Anyway on topic, giants clearly a mistake. Gw manages that a lot online...

I wrote 5 to account for the DOW giant so its possible if it is in the special category. However I think its more likely GW website/or my computer's error. Buts its fun to see the giant placed there. good for the rumour mongers. :evilgrin:
