Better get it right. As long as you let your backers know, few, if any, will complain about the delay.

Having backed a dozen or so projects, they've got one more delay before the shitstorm starts. On average, you're looking at 6 months of delay before the KS crowd starts to lose their shit. Then there's a 2-3 month window where the community fragments and bitches back and forth at each other, alternately crying for crucifixion and white knighting the project, then slowly more and more converts to the angry mob occur until about a year after the promised ship date, when even good news like "we're shipping" gets a hearty "fuck you and your mom with an AIDS infected broken glass bottle".

Oddly enough, this doesn't change from what I've seen regardless of the product being shipped.

I think this is now commonly referred to as the Bioware Effect.
