I assume that he means that projects go too big for their britches (as they may say) and haven't delivered on time. This is certainly the case for Reaper Bones. The projected delivery was two phase in November last year (for paints) and March this year for miniatures. Its mid May and I haven't received either paints or minis. We did get an update that they are receiving the last of the minis from China soon and I'm hopeful by the end of June I'll have everything... we shall see.

I'm not sure of hte story on OGRE. I didn't back that one.

after speaking with several friends that have done kickstarter stuff, they warned me that late delivery is almost the norm. i'm expecting a month or more late but hope for the decmber delivery.

They released a statement after it ended that, barring unexpected complications, they should still be meeting their December goal.

I wouldn't mind a few months late anyway. I'm easy-going.

I never worry about it. All of the kickstarters I've been in have had fairly good communication about any delays and why ,for example a Settlers of Catan plastic board (IE plastic board with slots for all the hex tiles and other game pieces) the guys doing it have posted their status updates and shown everything that's been going on and showing steady progress even though they're going to end up a little late.

I am sure they will say it will be on time. However, life doesn't go according to plan. It WILL be late. thats fine. Get it right and take your time. Better to get the best product 3 months late then crap that needs new rules on time. IMO
