I like list two for this. I am however a big fan of Feathered Cloak on our big monsters. Having a 2+ save is cool and all, but I feel like whatever they use to deal with that big beastie that just teleported into their face can deal with big heavily armored dudes. Nobody really likes swinging at something with -1 to hit. Plus if it gets surrounded or you really want to surgical strike it in just fly over them.
