Default Re: Fantasy Mecha and Giants Armor and Shields

A SM +4 giant needs 25 times the metal just to cover himself with the same thickness of armor. Because muscle power scales with cross-section rather than volume, that will also be proportionally just as heavy to the giant as the original was to the human, despite being tinfoil to the giant. Cube-square law hates giants.
