After setting up three autocannon HWTs today, I realized I had a good amount of spare parts left. I grabbed an empty infantry sprue, cut it up with a knife, arranged it into an octagonal chest-high fortification, approximately 30x30mm, and started building a 360 twin-linked heavy bolter turret on it. I still have to finish it, and it's been fun to do something out of nothing, but I just realized... it is totally useless! I just read the Turret Emplacement rules, which costs as much as a tank, but lacks everything a tank has... Then I read the Tarantula rules... BS 2 and glancing hits kill it automatically?! Sure, it's cheap... But useless.
OK so... is there any way I can use this cute little chap? I still have three missile launchers, lascannons and mortars, and one more heavy bolter, so I can make some more if I can field it right, or make the turret magnetic for weapon hot-swapping.

Thanks for the help, everyone. I'll give it a go in my next game, as a Turret Emplacement, and I'll let you know how it goes.
Snap a few pic's and put them up in the modeling/painting section, would love to see it.
I'll snap off pics of my entire army as soon as my camera is fixed. Will update the thread with pics.
