I'm an ex-tau player and I have a lot of spare burst cannons lying around, I was woundering if a burst cannon is the right size to be converted to an assault cannon.:shifty:
Also on a side note, does anyone have any ideas about converting imperial guardsmen into Inquizatorial stormtroopers to be led by a priest in power armour with a power weapon and a plasma gun.:sleep:
Any help appreciated!:rolleyes:
To kill one is an astrocity, to kill a million is a statistic.
The burst cannon, I think, is a bit too big and dosn't have enough barrels.
For the guards men, not sure really, i know FW do inquesition embelems, but i think there tank upgrades so wouldn't fit, but you could check it out.

I think a burst cannon could look pretty cool and considering the assault cannon fires 4 shots and the burst cannon has 4 barrels, it could in theory work.
I think it could work in principle, though it would take some conversion. I don't think I'd use it straight, since the burst cannon is an easily recognizable weapon.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I agree with theyak; the burst cannon is has quite a unique look and so a straight use of the part would be a little odd. Maybe you could use two burst cannon, cutting the barrels out of one and adding them to the other, so you end up with an 8-barrelled gun. Add to this an ammo belt of some kind and you should have a conversion that looks different enough from the current burst cannon to work.
You could also do some work on the muzzle - another good way to make it look different to the uncoverted burst cannon. Hope this helps.
For conversions purposes i ended up making a battle suit with something similar to what RP said. It has dual burst cannons and a piece of plasticard over the top to make it look like the Heavy Arms from Gundam Wing lol.
You could cut the barrels out and glue them into a hex but you'd pretty much be building the assault cannon from scratch.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
If I were you I'd just get a load of plastic rods and carefully stick them in plae to, say, double the number of barrels.
And GS it to look more Imperial (i.e armour plating)
