Default Sugestions Please

Im planning on starting necrons, as you can see I have a lord with custom warsythe, and im borrowing a freinds codex, I would like advice on a 1000pts force to beat my old eldar force. I've been thinking hard and cant find a way for necrons to win but im sure with your experiance, you can help me.

The 1000pts Eldar:
210, Eldrad
105, 10 Guardians with starcannon
105, 10 Guardians with starcannon
240, 3 War walkers with starcannons
240, 3 War walkers with starcannons
100, 2 Vibro cannons

I will be interested on your veiws, my first Idea was a monolith but with guided Vibro cannons thanks to Eldrad its 2 glancing hits per turn on it, making it very vunerable.
Also a mass of Warriors or Destroyers go down like flys as hole squads get demolished.

Lord - GoF GoF GoF GoF (160)
10 warriors (180)
10 warriors (180)
4 Pariahs (144)
5 Flayed Ones (90)
Monolith (235)

Put the Lord, pariahs, and flayed ones behind the lith, and creep up to them, while the Warriors hold an objectives, when you get close, move the monolith to the side, and charge forward into dangerous targets. The target has Ld - 4 and must take a morale check and if they fail they will only hit your flayed ones on 6's, and your Pariahs ignore all saves. This will break everything not fearless, and as long as they arent unloaded into, they should be fine. I played this against a similar list (Higher points) and it worked great.

You can't give the lord a piece of wargear more than once. Four gaze of flames is illegal.

But hidding behind the lith doesnt work? isnt it a skimmer and its a vehical so it can be shot passed without needing a leadership test? also a Vibro cannon hits all in a line so they will be hit as the monolith would be the Vibro cannons targets. Another problem is atleast 10 warriors would have to hide, as 20 warriors could be shot down and phase out by turn two. One more thing a monolith moves slow (for a vehical), so thats 4 or 6 glancing hits before the units hidding behind it get dangerously close, pritty good chance the lith will be destroyed or imobalised.

You must be using a 4th edition rulebook, you don't need Ld checks to shoot at an enemy unless they have some kind of special equipment that forces you to do so, that was called target priority checks. They don't exist. Also, glancing hits aren't that bad, and you are supposed to deep strike the Monolith, if you're so worried about it being shot up.

It is true, you cannot stack gaze of flame. Or any wargear for that matter.

hmmm now to take a look-see...

Lord
res orb
20 warriors
10 destroyers.

There, exactly 1000 points. So far, undefeated at my gaming club.

In 5th Ed hiding behind the 'Lith if a great idea since it blocks LOS -although it work both way.

Also, so what that the Monolith is slow? with it's Armour Value, most weapon won't do a thing and with the new vehicule damage shot you are less likely to destroy it since you have a penalty to your d6 effect roll.

An other thing, below 1500 points, Necron are in a desadvantage, your choice of tactic is very limited to phalanx and a Lord with ResOrb or variant thereof. It,s not a bad one, just very predictable.

Dude it's now TRUE LOS from the Point of view of the model in 5th edition. So 99% of the time a skimmer will blocks LOS...at least partially...thus giving cover save. But as I said it works both way. if the 'lith give your warriors a cover save, it gives it too to the enemy your warrior is shooting at.
