So... 16 British pounds for 4 miniatures, 2 dashboards and a handful of tokens? Am I missing something, or the add-ons are seriously overpriced?

16 pounds is about 20usd so they are the same price as the zombicide guest boxes. 5usd per mini is pretty fair for a small box that won't have a giant print run

At 16 pounds each, buying all four add-ons will cost a backer 64 pounds. The base game is 85. That means almost doubling the price of the game for... 16 minis?

BTW, I'm also pretty vexed by the fact that an iconic horror creature such as the Werewolf is an add-on that you have to pay extra for as opposed to something that comes in the base game. It kinda smells like cut content to me.

I originally thought so but looking at reaper minis, they range anywhere from a couple bucks to 10-15 USD on ebay. So considering these are actually built for a game, I say no.

Yep. KS doesn't tell you how many units of an add-on to make, so you have less information than with the base game. You charge more for the add-ons because their print run will be smaller than the base game, so the cost of the steel molds to amortize over the print run is higher. (KS is not a store, blah blah blah.) If you don't want to pay the add-on prices, don't buy them. Save the money to spend on other miniatures projects.

The werewolf should be in the core game instead of the guy holding up his own head IMHO

I dunno; the Headles Horseman is pretty classic, too. Maybe they should have left out the Lich or the Succubus, which feel more like "D&D fantasy" to me, and put the Werewolf in instead.
