Plus i think you should add barbed wire to the bottom piece and make an entrance (since it is not embarkable) that is the width of a standard marine base, or at least the size of what you want to be able to use it. (25mm prevents my oblits from taking over hehehehehe)
First i think it should get a 40 degree arc like a pintle mounted weapon. If you turned that bad boy 180 it would be spewing flames into the walls of the bunker.
Maybe a die roll at the beginning of the game, on a 1-3 its broken down, 4-6 its working, or maybe every time you try to use it lol. Maybe even a roll of 1 and it overheats causing a savable wound? Just to add some flair to it.
Also, most standard troops can not take a heavy flamer, so i am just thinking that maybe they would not know how to use one? Maybe an extra 10 or so points to the model for the training to use it, or make it take more then one to use it? Only if its a unit that can not take a heavy flamer normally. Otherwise its just kinda like giving a unit a fortified location, plus access to fire all one weapons (not like fire points) and if one chooses not to fire the squad (that can not normally take such a thing) is now equipped with a heavy flamer.
Just my opinion on it for house rules... Then again i have never seen any rules on using building turrets or the like so....
I guess this would be something for my table if you do not use it.
TL Flamer is just re-roll to wound. And for making an entrance, i dont think it would really matter as you gotta roll 2d6 for difficult if you want to get over that baricade.
I dont see an issue with it being a 180 arc of fire, as its modeled it should have a 360 arc, as it is on a turret. For shooting it, flamer templates ignore cover. So as long as your not hittng any friendly units, it should be fine to shoot, rules wise.
As for the guys shooting it, maybe yea, make it so the Marine trying to opperate the turret roll, 4+ and he can shoot it. I just dont want to over complicate it if it gets used in a game. So in most games, it wont be used like that, but like i said, i just think it looks cool.
