A Gigantic fighter can endure three Wound levels more than a normal fighter. When such a fighter is Killed Outright for the first time, then he is not considered to be a loss. Instead, two “Critical Wound” counters are placed on his base, and then a third and a fourth one if he is Killed Outright a second and third time. On the fourth Killed Outright the fighter is finally removed from the battlefield.
A Gigantic fighter suffers Wound penalties in the normal way. Whatever the number of Critical Wound counters on his base, the maximum Wound penalty is –3.
