Sorry in the codex it counts as disembarking to arrive from the portal. Because it hasn't moved, qouted "If the vehicle has not moved yet, then the passengers may disembark and move normally. The disembarked models may shoot, and assault normally" pg 67 BBoR. So as i can decipher its completely legal because the monos don't count as moving by infiltrating.

Ah it very well may be. I wish I had my codex and BBoR so I could remember. Hopefully someone else will weigh in for me. =]

Yes, if a vehicle hasn't moved you can disembark and still charge.
I still think it's a poor tactic though. Too many points in units that aren't that great at CC. Your phase out number will be quite low after just these six units/KP's are paid for.

Wait wraith not good in CC blasphemy! Wraiths dominate they lose to mobs but if i mas charge i can level them, A4 on the charge strength 6 they level termies, they always pay for them self. Necrons can great they just have to power game and that's what i do so then only warriors they be to focused with the 3 monoliths and 9 wraith eating them to go for more warriors. plus I'm running 40+.

I like running a wraith wing with a destroyer lord in one of my 1500 point armies. I don't run any monoliths in it though. It is a very scary force when used correctly.

Shun You, the one problem is... This is Spearhead. This might be a legal tactic, yes, but nobody in the right mind is going to have a bunch of infantry for you to assault, much less infantry out in the open waiting to be charged by you. A first turn charge might be threatening in a normal game, but in Spearhead I just don't see your Wraiths getting much accomplished as the enemy just won't be of the type and squishiness that Wraiths need to kill, and the points required for all of those Monoliths and Wraiths is immense.

immense yes deadly yes with the warriors i have 50 Necrons on the field, and dont doubt the wraiths hitting back armor 75% of tanks have a rear 10 auto hit, glance on 4 pen on 5.

I still think you are overestimating the worth of these units used together, especially when you could be using a Pylon or something more worthwhile.

Let there be no doubt-- such a tactic is effective, buuuut.... It is very limited. Reserves will be the Achilles Heel in this case, and that is without utilizing other Spearhead formations, such as Skyfall or Mechanized Assault.

Your Monolith formations will be centrally placed to unleash their Wraithwing, but if an outflanking team of mobile infantry swoop in and entangle the 'Wing, or destroy it...?

It's one trick that needs some more teeth, I fear. Potential, but it can be trumped!
