An Eldar Starcannon.

The Starcannon is a plasma weapon designed by the Eldar, using sophisticated electromagnetic pulses to guide bolts of destructive plasma to a target.[1] Though its plasma core produces the incandescent heat of a star, unlike its crude and clumsy Imperial counterparts the Starcannon uses containment fields to not only prevent the weapon overheating but keep it cool to the touch. That humanity uses a weapon which could maim or kill the wielder is seen by the Eldar as a testament to their idiocy.[2]

A larger version of the weapon known as the Heavy Starcannon is commonly mounted on Eldar starships[3].
