Its all in the title I guess. I`m in the middle of building my first Defiler, and for the sake of showmanship I want to pose it with the turret turned to the side.
Is this allowed in the rules? I`m asking beacuse of this whole thing about how weaons line of sight is aimed. I would mean the weren`t actually pointing forward on the Defiler as usual.
Not so easy, as a Walker the Defiler has a 90 degree angle in which it can have a los, that is 45 degrees from each side of the turret.
If you have it on the left side i do not thing you could claim line of sight (to shoot) to an enemy at your right, just like a Dreadnought cannot just shoot backwards and so prevent putting its weaker back armour to a greater threat....

Get your sig from-tHe BaD GuY
it's a turret though and as far as i know they can fire anywhere aslong as you have Los, so it doesnt matter how you glue it.

You can model the weapons any way you want as long as it is clear to the opponent what is the front, side, back, etc. of the model.
Look your basic marine. Many of them are carrying their weapons across their chest, pointing in the air, waving off in some direction , etc. Do you think anyone is going to say anything about them not being able to shoot because their weapons are in a firing position? Look at all the dreadnought conversions that have them in dynamic poses, weapons pointing off to the side, etc. No one is going to complain about you modeling a Defiler with the turret turned as long as it is clear the LOS is based on the true front of the vehicle. Of course if its a turret it doesn't matter which way it faces.
Woah, don't glue your defiler head together. Find some small strong magnets, drill a hole in the turret base and the head,insert a magnet so they are attratced to each other when the head is on,glue, let the glue dry thouroughly before trying to attach to the base.Then you can twistyour defilers head anytime you want!
It is a little tricky, but don't give up.
