I find its a great resource to find those small independent gamemakers and alternate model creators whom you can fund, play a few games with friends and enjoy what may be a one-off or a future game to play down the line. I'm a little less certain about larger companies like Mantic using it to fund their production runs. My FLGS can't afford to stock those little guys since many will be one hit wonders and I might be the only one in the area interested in them, but Mantic is something my FLGS can and does stock so it seems like I'm taking money away from them on something the producing company would make anyway.

Most of my board game purchases in recent years have happened through Kickstarter. I haven't yet back any miniature games (although several of the board games I've back have had highly detailed playing pieces).

Board games are great through Kickstarter. Terrain and game aids are great through Kickstarter. Wargames... I'm not so sure. Golem Arcana was a pretty big disaster, and without the promise of ongoing support, I think wargames are going to struggle on the platform.
