I'm pretty sure that it's just a Photoshop scaling error.  Reaper would have to confirm, buy my guess is that the giantesses will be the same size as the previous Huge giants.

 

Just posted a question on the update comment thread. Be interesting to see the response. (It wouldn't surprise me if the scaling were off.)

That is the best looking set of female Giants I have ever seen.  Dynamic poses,  clothing and armor that is actually appropriate,  and effective.  I am getting giants this Kickstarter after all. Hell I may just add another set in the pledge manager just for my daughter.

 

Good job!  I am stoked for how awesome these are

Love the giantess warriors!!! I can't imagine such awesome minis selling any less well than the male giants, so hopefully we will see more such ladies either in this KS or in the future, to cover the other giant races.

 

I love the caribou on her back, but agree that the caribou should probably be about the same size as the winter wolf (large base size), so I fear that it may get scrapped.

Realistic looking weapons? Check. Functional adventuring gear? Check. Kickass expressions? Check. These are exactly the kind of female giant I was hoping for.

Could be a young Caribou.

Anyway..love the Female Giants, they look ready for war!

And I need that Wolf, multiples of that one actually.

Per Ron, the scaling is correct. Those will be some big giants.

 

See below for more on scaling.

I'm okay with that!

 

also from Ron:

David - close. It's difficult to approximate sizes using concept art sometimes. The Winter Wolf will be sculpted to fit on a 2" base though. That might change height or length, but we'll do our best to make it fit to the art as close as possible.

Those giantesses are amazing! Everything we could hope for short of having them foam at the mouth while swinging a weapon in berserk rage.

Those giants really are perfect. Now if only I was into giants... I've only gotten 1 from the previous kickstarters.

Updated my pledge to include the new giants! Thanks Reaper so much for listening! Hope to see a few more badarse female warrior giants (fire, hill, stone, storm) pop up before the end!

My response to Ron's post after some research:

 

 

Quote

 

@Ron: " If you have the male frost giants and female frost giant from Bones 3, they'll be that size."

You might want to recheck your art scaling in the image. Frost Giant Warrior #501 from Bones 3 is about 2-1/2 times the height of the Bones Anhurian Archer (83mm to 34mm from bottom of foot to top of head respectively.) I make these figures to be about 4 - 4½ times as large as the Sir Forscale in the image (100mm and 85mm to 22mm on my screen).

Which is not to say that I dislike them, I like the art quite a bit, just that your scale reference seems significantly off.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      This is the Bones 4 Information Thread.
      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 4 Kickstarter.
      This is the thread for information and questions.  
      This thread will be moderated to ensure forum rules are followed.  Posts of chatter and enthusiasm will be relocated to the Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
