you get a revenant titan, 700+pts of monolith killing wraithbone ;D

Actually no, 700+ points just to kill 1/2 235pts models, no way, thats dropping you at least 400pts and yes it can be nasty to oother things but the pulsars are anti tank and the crons only have 1/2 tanks in 1500pts

Basically stand back, Fire Prism and pulse laser it till it flops down, big un fall harder!

Ork players do have one little Strength 10 gem that can pop a Monolith. Its the Superstik bomb carried by Meks. It hits on a six on a Lith thats moved 6 inches. I may be wrong but I think it hits on a 4+ if the Monolith was stationary (unless it counts as a skimmer, which keeps it at D6 to hit). If it does hit, you have a 50% chance to glance or pen. Sounds like Orky odds to me!!

Best,

Ya monoliths are pretty buff.

Its a skimmer so its gonna be hard to hit.

But you can get penetrating hits cuz it can never move over 6'' it's a slow but deadly tank with a very short range.

heres the plus if you block the acess points they cant use it to teleport there dudes in.

doesnt work well vs the monolith tho cuz it can move then telie in dudes i believe.

I played my army against a Necron army and stumbled across the best way to destroy a necron monolith.

A single unit of 15 Necron warriors shooting it.

Out of my 15 shots at max range
10 hit,
out of those 10,
3 got sixes
out of those 3 sixes
one managed to get a 6
and the monolith was gone.

Best way to kill a monolith...be a necron player and use gauss weapons.

statistically your gonna need many many more gauss weps.

36 need to hit (statistically) so you need to be firing 54 shots.

not that hard. personally i'ed just use heavy destroyers as they have better odds anyways.

Ii thought the monolith was immune to guass weapon rule? If so the only thing that can hurt it is the heavy destroyer.

To expand on that question, does Rending affect Monoliths?

Rending: According to the rules on Living metal no weapon that would get an extra d6 gets the extra d6 so no rending weapons don't get the extra die.

Gauss: Gauss will affect the monolith as it doesn't change the number of d6 rolled or change the monolith's armour, it merely causes a glancing hit, as such the monolith is not immune to gauss weapons.

On a side note, when a character's strength is doubled by use of s power weapon, that doubling is still in effect. You can only add a single D6 roll to it, however.

Thus an Old Warboss (Strength 5, doubled to strength 10 with an Ork Power Klaw) does have a 50/50 shot at doing something after it scores a hit on a Monolith. The trick is, hitting in the first place!

Best Regards,

Crons are not cheesey. :

The lith is not that hard to take down unless you are dark eldar or eldar. In which case you focus on phase out. OR

Use haywire nades from scorps or wraithcannons.

BTW the monolith can be penetrated it cannot move over 6 like most skimmers.
