I am currently levelling and love playing tank supports. I currently play Alistar and sometimes Nunu. Can anyone recommend any similar champs who are quite tanky with decent CC?
Thanks!

Taric.

If you want a tanky support with CC, it's pretty much Alistar and Taric as #1 options.

Blitzcrank, Nunu and Malphite as well if you don't mind the lack of healing.

Taric, Blitzcrank and Leona are all excellent supports.

Many of the tankier champions, such as Nautilus, Malphite, Volibear and Amumu can be played as support, but are probably not best there.

Cause Shen isn't an actual support. He's a top laner with global support presence. That's his strength. As a pure support he's lacking.

Leona is an excellent tanky support as she has 3 forms of cc and can provide great early game damage with her passive. She works very well in bot lane with Corki or Graves.
