All in all 6 currently overdue, 3 refunded out of 40, with no outright failures except for ONE which isn't on the list because a friend backed it and I chipped in, and I only lost $7 anyway.

 

I would guess that the majority of the 31 which delivered were late, though not all.

Thought I'd update this for the year.

 

Completed.

Spoiler

 

Stonehaven Dwarf Adventurers:- Received with no issues. Have backed again.

Reaper Bones 1:- Slightly late, but no real issues. Didn't back any of the subsequent Bones Kickstarters (not a fan of the material).

Stonehaven Gnome Adventurers:- Also received with no issues. Have backed again.

Super Dungeon Explore - Forgotten King:- Late, but no other issues. Did not back any further Kickstarters from them (lost interest in chibi-style minis).

Wolsung:- Very late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (I have enough at the moment).

Carnevale:- Late, I considered the postage charges excessive and the mini I received was very poorly cast and sculpted. Will not back (or buy) anything from them in future.

Basius 2:- Late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (Don't use the 2 I got as much as I thought I would).

Minion Miniatures - Monsters of Underdeep:- Received late, but with no issues. Would recommend them..

Corvus Corax - Outcasts:- Received early, no issues. Have backed again.

Corvus Corax - Dawning:- Received early (again!), no issues (again!), would recommend them.

Kingdom Death - Monster:- Final expansion was cancelled and received a refund, so is now officially completed. Despite being VERY late I did back their latest project in the hope that lessons were learnt.

Song of Blades - Hammer and Forge:- Received on time. Looks good, would recommend.

Infamy - Goblin Chief:- Received 3 months (!?!) early. Lovely mini, would recommend.

Wild West Exodus - Unfinished Business:- Received on time. Pretty disappointed by the minis in the end, they seem to have been cast on the cheap, would not recommend backing anything of theirs again.

Bombshell Babes 2:- Received slightly early. Very nice minis, but would have appreciated some better packaging, they've all been a bit bashed and bent during transit. Would recommend.

Heroines in Sensible Shoes:- Received on time. Very nice minis, would recommend.

Going Native - New World Monsters:- Received late, but the quality is very nice. Would recommend

Stonehaven Halfling Adeventurers:- Received late (but for good reasons), minis are up to the usual high Stonehaven standards. Would recommend.

Norsgard - Second Wave:- Received early, Very nice minis. Would recommend.

The Pantheon Of Chaos:- Received late, but was very pleased with what I got. Would recommend.

 

TGG2 - Light and Darkness:-  Received late. Decided to go with resin minis in the end just to get it over with, despite the minis being decent a lot of little things about this one annoyed me no end, would not back any more of their Kickstarters.

 

Pending

Shadows of Brimstone:- Update:- Very late. Production is still in progress, and it's not going to beat the Chinese New Year shut down, so it looks like a mid/late 2017 shipping date now. (Latest Update:- No news on EU fulfilment for a while, looks like this one will slip to early 2018 at least.)

Twisted:- Update:- Late, but should be shipping in March, everything is looking good so far. (Latest Update:- Received Wave 1 shipment a couple of days ago, minis are excellent and well worth the wait, but no date set for Wave 2 shipments.)

Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5:- Update:- Late, but Wave 1 shipments have started so it has only slipped by a couple of months. Sadly communication is just as lacking and irregular as it was in the previous Kickstarter.

 

New

Carnvale:- Due Feb 2018. Hopefully as this one has been run by a different company it turns out better than my previous Carnvale Kickstarter, has been providing regular updates so I am optimistic at the moment.

Mierce Miniatures - Savage Hordes 4:- Due June 2018. Finally jumped on one of their Kickstarters, should get the existing minis I pledged for next week, but I think it'll be awhile before I see the new ones.

 

Failed

Imbrian Arts:- It hasn't technically failed yet, but there has been no apparent progress made in almost a year (and very little made the year before that). While I did receive part of my pledge, I doubt I will see any more of it. I think both the money and enthusiasm for this project ran out a long time ago. (Update:- This one has sparked back in to life recently, still doubtful I'll receive anything, but stuff is happening)(Latest Update:- The regular updates that were promised quickly fizzled out again, looks like I was right not to move it from the failed category).

 

 

Been good this year with only 2 Kickstarters backed for fairly small amounts, but the glacier-like speed at which my pending ones continue to move is slightly depressing.

Next year has Monoliths Batman Boardgame, which could get expensive, but that's all I've got my eye on at the moment.

Still lucky: NO failed projects or rip offs. One in particular, I forgot about: the Low Life Miniatures, due to going through an ugly divorce. Andy Hopp contacted me when the minis came BACK, and was good enough to reship them to my new address. Great guy, Andy Hopp.

A couple are delayed: Polyhero Dice's Wizard Dice, although they're due to deliver in November; and Sandy Peterson's Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder, at some future point.

TSR's Top Secret, Kev White's dangerous ladies, and the last Reaper kickstarter are still on sched.

So I figure I'm doing okay.

At the moment, the one that is nagging at me, is Megacon games. They have lost me as a customer. On the other hand, Soda Pop Miniatures is winning me back.

Currently, I'm in the "it's all late, but all signs say it's coming" camp.

 

I've only got a handful of projects.

 

Bones 1, 2, 3 - delivered late.

Satellite Reign - delivered late.

Dungeons After Dark - delivered late, and in a lackluster fashion.

Worldspinner - delivered, I guess. They've apparently gone "live" but never told their kickstarter backers, and the 1 year membership has apparently been counting down since that unannounced live date despite people never logging in...

Thornwatch - late.

Legendary Showdown: Presidential Edition - late.

I went all in on Myth. Those modules were just too tempting. I am hoping that doesn't come back and bite me.

My other failure was Fairy tail games. I did not back through kickstarter, but bought a dropped pledge through their website... I did receive the "sacred 40" miniatures but nothing else... I should have gotten the game and all the expansions and miniatures... I was looking forward to playing this one with my daughter but she is 17 this month so the time frame for that past even if this had delivered...

 

I have been on Kickstarter since 2013.... I think I have dropped about $8,000... Which is a signifigant part of my gaming budget... I am starting to get burned out with kickstarter though...

Still waiting for:

Barbaric Splendor -- due Sept 2016, sculpting still not finished

Eclipse Sisterhood: Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures --  still sculpting, est Nov 2017

Bones 4 -- funding in progress

 

I seem to have a 50/50 rate of "on time" delivery and so far haven't backed any really regrettable choices. 

 

 

As of this week: 

 

Barbaric Splendor -- due Sept 2016, sculpting still not finished

Eclipse Sisterhood: Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures --  est Nov 2017, "in production"

Bones 4 -- est Feb 2019, funded

 

I have not seen anything new or original that I wanted to put money into for a long time.
