Sorry. Vindicators and Lascannons are the only way you're likely to get shot of them with standard marines. Librarians can get rid of them with Vortex of Doom I believe, but there's a good chance you'll melt the librarian and anything close enough in the process. If you send a dreadnaught against it, more often than not, he'll telegraph that move and the dread will never reach it.

Like others have said, they're a huge sponge of your resources and your probably better off concentrating your fire on other parts of their army in an attempt to get the phase out.

Space Marines-
Avoid it. Spread out and just hit it with lascannons/ML

IG- Vehicles. Protect them at all costs

Chaos-Ive never played as chaos against necrons...

Eldar-Fire dragons. Bring them to a necron game. At least 2 squads, and hope they dont footslog.

First mix in an iron clad deadnought with chain fist and lightly sprinkle with
Multimeltas. Next add in some luck and garnish with your opponent's tears.

i would say close combat attacks are the way to go. i run orks and a nob or warboss with a powerclaw will sort it out on the charge. not entirley ofie with the space marine codex but i would imagine that they are str4 aswell which means a sm with a powerfist or a terminator will be str 9 on the charge. your still only gonna be glancing on 5's and penetrating on 6's but if u i would imagine a terminator sqaud would get the job done.

number of ways for old space marines:
-melta guns
-close combat (power fist, thunder hammer, chainfist)
-orbital strike (could get lucky =D)

i dont see many monoliths now though since they got nerfed into the ground =/ i see more players (not all) leaning towards cryptek spyders and ahnilation barge's due to the points cost.
