is this game still on track? for its release date..or has it "slipped" like so many of the other KS games seem to do.

I would currently expect a few months delay at least. Ludo Fact is busy with a lot of projects (e.g. I would estimate big projects like Dark Souls get priority):

Anyway, a word about the miniatures: China is on holiday this week and next week is Essen Fair. I'll see my colleagues there and then and we will go over all the projects we have at this time, which is a large number, bigger than ever. The industry is booming and everybody is starting to feel it.

That being said, Dario has send over renders which are checked to see if we can make small changes that can have a big impact on production cost by simply making the miniatures fewer parts. Ideally, one piece and base attached is what we require to stay within reasonable pricing. Miniature prices multiply with more parts and assembly, and while that may be necessary for some miniatures, we cannot do it for every single one.

That is being done but probably stuck in the pipeline of just too many projects. The good studios and craftsmen are used by multiple companies and maybe that causes a little delay. But I will find out next week and then tell Dark Ice Games the status. Please bear with us in the mean time, We'll get you news as soon as we have it ourselves.
Cheers
FRank.

But more importantly is to get game done right (and before UK leaves EU) than on time.

Like batanen said. We are still on track but we have many people to rely on, so we'll see how the situation changes with time.

That sounds good.
But (especialy) on miniature KSs I almost expect that it's going to be at least 3 months later than the delivery date.
I've come to accept that. Anyways I got so many other games to play (and miniatures to paint) that it does not matter that much to me.

KS releasing on time are much more of a rarity than those that run late. Minimum three months after due date is a reasonable expectation I would agree (and personally I go for six months).
