Default Versus Necron Monoliths

They're huge, practically unkillable, armed with tons of lethal weaponry and make it even harder to keep those damned metal skeletons off the board.

How would you fare...Versus The Necron Monolith?

I would agree with olek but it doesn't necessarily have to be rail guns it could be any guns so basically I would probably just try to out gun it from all sides.

I play and have played against necrons and what will kill a monolith is a couple of either havoc or devastator squads armed with lascannons, or a bunch of small regular squads and one guy has a lascannon/missile launcher.

a couple of words: Melta guns, railgun, deep striking, luck. Or, if your feeling reckless, fire a battle cannon at it, pray, and get very lucky. I have killed a monolith with a battle cannon

Strength 9 or 10 guns work. Stuff like meltas tend to be a waste just because you don't get the extra d6. I have used an exorcist a few times on monoliths but that is usually a case where there was nothing else to shoot at. Most strength 8 weapons are better used on other necrons.

I'm afraid there's no authoritative source for thinking you're an asshole

with marines, a devastator squad with at least a couple lascannons and maybe a missile launcher or two (just so they're not useless after the monolith is taken down) would be pretty effective. A predator with a twin-linked lascannon and 2 normal lascannons would be great against them too. The simplest strategy is to ignore them and concentrate all your fire on the necron warriors, although if your enemy has tons and tons of warriors out of line of sight or in cover this strategy would be ineffective.
