Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
« on: June 21, 2024, 12:58:32 PM »
I walked into firestorm the other day, promising myself I wouldn't buy anything, and then these two beauties where on a promo bench...Dangit.
Hope y'all like em. I painted them to match the movie but gave Sundance brown gun handles. I really enjoyed painting these, from the dusty clothes to the stubble. Absolute joy to paint. Also I made a little adobe background scene for the hardcore fans. Not much, I'm not very skilled in that department. But hey, it's all a bit of fun.

I showed it to my partner this week and she said it's her new favorite western. It's a really nice movie.

For what it's worth the "Who are those guys?"  on their trail included Indian tracked Lord Baltimore, and Joe LeFors.  The folks at  Old West Magazine were asked and their sources have never been able to find any evidence that Lord Baltimore was anything other than a figment of the imagination of the director of the film.

Joe Lefors was an actual lawman who was involved in the posse going after the Hole in the Wall Gang which was Butch Cassidy's and Harry Longbaugh's (Sundance Kid) outfit.  Also got the "confession" of Tom Horn that resulted in his being hung.

His press might be better than his actual performance 
Quote
Famed lawman and Pinkerton Agent Charlie Siringo worked heavily on that case, and would years later come into contact with LeFors in the process of working other cases, and would later indicate that Lefors was incompetent, at best, as a lawman.

Siringo seems to have had a better reputation.  https://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-charlessiringo/
