What seems fancy to me


First of, good day to all of you. Tis been a long while since I posted anything here, so I wanted to kinda give you all an idea of what I've  been up to, and what's gonna come in the future.

To be honest, things have been quite... awkward in the last months, specially since I got into college three months ago. But, of course, things started to get weird way before that. In my last entry -september 2012-, I mentioned a charity trip... well, it didn't go as planned. Let's just say I had to do something disgusting. Dear lord...

That aside, I've been getting more and more into modding lately, specially in Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars. I've left the BG2 dev team and started working freelance for various mods, such as La Belle Alliance and the War of 1812. That, and I've got myself my own little modding corner in the Flying Squirrel Entertainment forums, called "Mr. Kochi's Skin Warehouse" (…). I've uploaded quite a few British reskins in there, featuring some of the famous, or 'darkest' regiments in the British Peninsular Army, such as the 28th Gloucestershire, the 41st Regiment of Foot and the 82nd "Prince of Wales' Own Volunteers".



In other news, I'm now taking bagpipe lessons. Not Scottish, but Asturian bagpipes, one of the many kinds of Spanish-Celt bagpipes out there. Blasted thing only has 12 notes, and although it looks easy, it's a pain to play. But I adore it! Pity it's too damned noisy to practice at home (had to get a custom made flute to practice), and too bloody expensive to buy my own (800 euros, plus shipping it from Spain).

And, even if I wanted to buy the bagpipe, even if I had the money to do so, I have other priorities for money spending. I -finally- managed to find and sign up in a Napoleonic reenactment group, and since March 16th, I've been marching around in a fancy Spanish uniform, holding a Brown Bess and getting lots of cramps in my arms. Blasted musket is heavy.

Well, that wraps up all I've been doing so far. Right now I'm trying to port NW's models and textures into Garry's Mod, so expect more screenshot stuff quite soon.
  • Listening to: Nel Campu Nacen Flores
  • Reading: Lots and lots of stories
  • Watching: Grimm season 2 is over ;~;
  • Playing: The game of life in college. I bloody hate it
  • Eating: Well, breakfast!
  • Drinking: Oh glorious British Tea, sir!


koach2's Profile Picture
Hello there.

I'm James Koach, a Napoleonic Wars reenactor, game modder and university student. In here ye'll find what little I make of art, be it the occasional drawing or Gmod screenshot. It normally isn't a big deal, as I'm more of a developer than an artist, but eh... Why not publishing?

The website attached belongs to The Battle Grounds II mod for Half Life 2. I'm kinda part of the dev team, and there's some of my stuff in the game. Go play it. Best Revolutionary War game I've seen.

Hey cool hobby, Im also a history fan!

So which country/ empire are you interested in most? I think as I see in your gallery Britain right?^^
koach2 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012
;) History is fascinating.

Well, aye. The British kinda my favourite empire...

Though I have certain interest in the Swedish Austrians too, specially in the 1700-1800's
Arminius1871 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012
So are you also interested in the 7 years war, Prussia and Friedrich the Great, or just Britain and Napoleon?^^
