How would these fit in with the rules as they are?
I guess the Giants won't be much different, just adding Fanatic to the cost?
Dragons, I have a harder time coming to grips with.
Can Dragons be used as an adjunct to any lists?
The biggest bugbear (sorry) between us is that I said I didn't think Dragons could count Biological Weapon as they had no biology to produce the Dragon breath. He says it's all magic.
Now. I am aware that this is a weird conversation, considering what we are talking about. So, what I am asking is this.
Has anyone got any experience with this sort of "troop type"/fusion?
Does it work?
How does it fit into the world of Talomir?
Why am I wasting my time wondering about this?

When working out the stats My take.
Giants have TER; ENG; UD
Should an Undead Giant also have FAN? It could but they don't take reaction tests anyway.
Should an Undead Dragon also have FAN as well as FLY?
Should their REP/AC be the same as mortal Giants/Dragons? Others on the Undead list all have a standardised REP3 AC2 I'g go Rep 6 AC 6.

Would they have to be Summoned, presumably only by negatively Aligned Nations? That would be the way I'd do it but it would have to be a Gate Spell to closer match the Rep and AC of the dragon..
I worry that my colleague is trying to engineer what he thinks is a "super army" on the basis of the "you only get what you pay for & it's all fantasy anyway" argument. While I have some sympathy with his reasoning, I think it just leads to any army being the same as any other army. I prefer restrictions & lists because it means you have to fight to an army's strengths AND weaknesses & however fanciful our games are, they must adhere to some internal logic within that "universe"
