Default a new burst cannon

I was wondering on how legal it would be too make a large not quite ion cannon size burst cannon so I could put it up top on the turret. Also how would I make it plastic and brass/plastic rods.

I thought about that but the one on a devil fish isn't twin linked but I guess if I am doing a count as anyway it could work.

I hate to be a discouragement, but why bother? Burst cannons and pulse fire are already so ubiquitous in a Tau army, it seems completely unnecessary to make custom models just to bring more pulse fire to the table, especially when you could alternatively bring pulse fire in the form of scoring firewarriors. The ion cannon and railgun turrets are vastly more useful.

Well I like the turret look over a chin mounted gun so I need a decent length burst cannon too mount up top on my devilfish. So it is not so much a custom tank as a conversion.

After looking over the twin long barreled burst cannon from forge world it looks like if I take it apart and put magnets on it I should be able too do 2 devilfish which is nice since that is how many warfish I was going to run. thanks for the info.
