Balls! is the latest Kickstarter by Macrocosm Miniatures.

It is for a set of 10 flying Balls made up from 6 unique sculpts, they are already funded and not far from unlocking the first stretch goal the legged versions.

These are 28mm and made from resin, the sculpts are quirky and remind me of Squigs so in that aspect you could use these as proxies for them, also imo i think these will be good for various RPGs.

So far there is only one add-on and that is the Monster Ball for £8.

The Great Balls Of Fire are now unlocked and can be taken as part of your pledge,

The next stretch goal is for The Swarm, Lots of teeny tiny Ball monsters all flying as one swarm together. This will be sculpted as one big monster Ball.

In the latest update they talk a little bit about some rules they are thinking of for the Balls.

From the Kickstarter update:

"I had a sit down meeting with Robey Jenkins (Horizon Wars) who pitched an idea of a game to me over a cup of tea and a biscuit. I was sold on the idea and am really excited to play it.
We will hopefully see a lot of movement on this during next week and I will keep you all informed.....
What I can say to you now about it is this..... It will be fast, it will be fun and it will be diceless...I better start practicing guessing ranges again, I've been spoiled with all the premeasuring games Ive been playing recently!"

Also some more WIP of the accessory wings with the prices and the new pledges level graphics with the Balls available to choose from as part of your pledge.

2HRS LEFT OF THE CAMPAIGN.

The Tough Nut Balls and 1 free random Monster Ball for pledges over £25 stretch goals are now unlocked, they are added to the one-click pledge for free or can be taken as a choice for a standard pledge of 10 or an add-on for £25.

The next stretch goal is Zombie Balls and we are not far from unlocking them.

The Ball Of Steel WIP still is not in, but imagine a woodlouse rolled up with one eye and plate mail armour.

The Tough Nut Ball WIP is also still not in, but they are a cross of punk rocker and scarred veterans.
