Substitutes for Garen and Alistar?

So basically, it's safe to say I've rather fallen in love with a certain type of playstyle(s) atm. Garen and tank-Alistar (haven't mastered support-Ali just yet) are my current two favorites. Though I am really interested in trying other champs of similar natures, just to switch it up. I tried toying with some AD/AP Carries because I envy their kill scores, but I end up dying constantly because I'm too stubborn and aggressive to retreat in time to compensate for their squshiness. I tend to play Garen more lately because I get more kills than with Ali (I blame my work for this pent up desire to smash things in the face, don't mind me), but when I'm in the right mood, I have absolutely no problem going full on tank and just soaking up the damage like a boss. As you can see, mana or mana-less isn't really a problem for me, I'm just looking to spice up my game a bit.

Tl;dr - My current two mains are Garen and Alistar, so essentially I like tanky DPSes/bruisers and tanks. Suggestions for fun alternates to these guys?

Not sure what you mean by tank alistar if you differentiate between that and support - I run almost the exact same build for him in jungle or as support, with the exception of using mobility boots on jungle, which is actually less tanky then support which gets mercs or tabi. While I do ward less(but still alot) as a jungler, I buy an oracle earlier. I'm not sure where else you'd play him that you'd build him differently.

While I haven't played Garen since the tutorial, I'd think Tryndamere or Darius would be relatively similar in playstyle. For Alistar, try Taric and Leona for support, or Maokai and Malphite for jungle.

darius = garen 2.0, literally
ali, this can be many things. Support ali is close to leona for lane phase. Jungle ali basically translates into any tank jungle, ie. malph, shen, naut, mao
