this is interesting to read for me. As this is my first time backing anything on KS. I thought the delivery date was good in terms of time frame compared to others... I hope this wasn't me being naive. It will be interesting to see how this pans out in reality.
As a "not" first timer, I can say that projects are often a little late (a few early, a few very late and even a few right on time). Games with miniatures seem to suffer the worse (probably a combination of manufacturing and shipping delays and how far along the project is to begin with). I feel pretty good about this one as it seems to have been worked on for a while and doesn't have a lot of complicated Stretch Goals to delay things. Now if you back a PC Game project.....well just add a year or two and you won't be disappointed...
