I have given a lot of thought about images that portray this campaign at a glance, I know the clown face or such jumps to mind. After all my considerations I could only come up with one combination for an image. the colours of the Royal Armoured Corps which I am told stand for 'through the mud and the blood to the green fields beyond' and these colours overlaid with the badge of the 79th Division which is where the term 'Funnies' originates.

Yeah, I'd say so. I don't think they ever imagined a Pz.1 carrying that field piece when they first designed it!

Hello!
Is 15 cm sIG 33 (Sf) auf Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf B funny enough to be allowed to take part in Funnies Campaign?

Yes I'm in. Tossing up between a Renault UE with pak 36 perched on the front or a Sherman V with Flail...

That picture of FT-17 Gas Generator hawling Krupp's 8.8 cm. Flak 16 is worth gold!



Thanks Angel, I agree. I had never seen it before until I went looking for proof pictures of the smoke generator FT-17. It would make a cool diorama. A French tank being used by Polish troops to tow a German gun. Pretty dang cool.

Thanks Ko. Looking forward to starting it to see how it builds up.

Thanks,
Randy

This one seems like it could be a lot of fun!

Would a de-turreted British Army Stuart fit with the theme?
Been thinking about building one provided I can find some decent references.

HARV -
I haven't taken part in a campaign in ages. I saw this one and it caught my interest. I've had this RPM Polish (French) FT-17 Smoke Generator kit in my collection gathering dust for years and was curious if it would be allowed in the campaign.

Please let me know if it will be allowed.

Thank you,
Randy

I'm sure it will be Randy. That is one very interesting piece of machinery!



Thank you Peter, I thought it was cool looking and little less known than other funnies.

Very cool Randy! Absolutely allowed!



Thank you Colin. I'm looking forward to the campaign. I looked and the last one I took part in was in 2014. So I guess I am due.

Thanks,
Randy

I am still awaiting approval for the campaign, hopefully it will come soon. 'One-offs' are certainly welcome as long as there is photographic evidence.
