What rule set are you using?

If you are using Combat patrol rule...the monolith is not allowed, if you are using regular rule, you might be able to sqeeze in 2 minimal Warrior sqaud, but this will be your weak point.

Sure you have a 'lith but most of your opponent will ignore it and get you to phase out or reply pounder your 10 warriors or so to the ground...with the right gun, they can make WBB really hard to pull.

Plus depending with whom you play, you might get some pretty unsavory labels for bringing a Monolith to a 500 point games.

Aside from what Boneguard said, a Monolith is not legally possible.

Min Squad size for Necron Warriors is ten (10), IIRC. Since you need two (2) Troop choices in the standard FOC, you'll need at least twenty (20) Necron Warriors, which sets you back about 400 points. You alos need an HQ, qhich conveniently is priced around 100 points.

As you can see, 500 point Necron armies don't offer much variation...

Cheers,
-Bone

Bonesaw's right, it is not possible to have anything in a 500pts game aside from 2 small squads of Warriors & a Lord (unless your opponent is okay with you being 1 point over, in which case you can have a Wraith too). Usually the remaining 40pts are spent on wargear for the Lord (namely a Ressurection Orb).

No way you can get 2 10 man squads of Necron warriors and a Lord WITH Lightning Field, Warsythe and Destroyer Body for 500 Pts.

I'd suggest you take a look at the Codex
You can leave the Lightning field, by my calculations for a neat 500Pts.
(Oh and the c'tans name is Nightbringer, not Nightlord, Don't want HIM getting angry now do we :P)

If you take a lord and three wraith body guards your phase out is after three necrons die.

[rant]
3 most normal squads can kill more than that in one turn don't expect to last long using lists that are, quite frankly, really really really really bad ideas.

[/rant]

Thank you.

well I assume under those conditions its just fun between mates, why not have a scenario where he has 500points, you get only the monolith if you want to try it out, and add a little fun to it, like a reason behind it, the marians are on a scout party not far from a massive battle, the monolith is heading to the battle to aid the necrons, so the mission is, the marians must destroy the monolith before it reachs the other table side.

Sorry if this isnt want you wanted to hear, just a sugestion.
