There was an update March 23rd

Which included this letter from Panda Games that provides insight into the road ahead.

Quote:
Dear backers of Incursion,

Panda is extremely excited to be working on the production of Incursion. We think the game is going to look fantastic and I know from my conversations with Jim Bailey that he is extremely passionate and committed to working with us to bring you the highest quality game that we can produce. Incursion has a large number of unique and detailed miniatures so this is certainly one of the more complicated projects we’ve had to work on. The plastic miniatures are the components that will require the greatest amount of time to produce. All other components (dice and printed materials) can be completed in a relatively shorter amount of time.

We completed final analysis on all of the plastic miniatures and are now working on creating temporary moulds for all of the figures so we can make samples for Grindhouse Games to inspect. Typically, a few rounds of iteration are required during this part of the process to ensure that we can produce the figures to match the original sculpts, keeping our manufacturing limitations in mind as well. Each round of iteration takes approximately 4-6 weeks so it is difficult to gauge exactly how much time we will spend in this part of the production process. Sometimes we can get it right on the first try and sometimes 3 or 4 rounds of iterations are necessary.

After the temporary samples are looking great and approved, we will produce moulds which take approximately 5 weeks to produce. Afterwards, the final production of the figures will take around 8 weeks including assembly and quality control.

As much as we want to get this game in your hands as soon as possible, our top priority is ensuring that the game quality is top notch so that you will have a wonderful game which you can enjoy for many years.

Sincerely, Michael Lee, Managing Partner of Panda Game Manufacturing

Realistically? When it's done, whenever that may be.

The price of success. More scupts = more molds = more potential issues = more delays.

Also I think the incursion guys have been busy trying to squeeze every bit out of each penny they received. See the previous update about there not being enough money to produce copies for retail.
