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.

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.

My response to Ron's post after some research:

@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.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
