Is there anyone who's more well-traveled than me in the whole Kickstarter world that can tell me when pledge managers usually show up? Or is it different depending on the creator? As VH was my very first backed KS project, I have no idea whatsoever, and I plan to add a whole bunch of optional stuff once the pledge manager is sent out and would prefer to have at least an approximate on when that money has to be set aside. Have backed two other projects since then, and between that and boring stuff like car repairs, food, and that pesky rent the paycheck is going straight to the shredder!
It really depends on the KS company. With something like VH which involves a lot of components, miniatures and many stretch goals, it's going to take them a while. I suspect the shipping costs is what delays things the most.
