Space Marine Player
First one: I play Dark Eldar and I love using terrorfexes. I played a space marine player and we played a game and of course I eventually use a terrorfex. He claims, because he has Calgar, he automatically passes all pinning tests. I look at the "God of War" rule and it only says "morale" I tell him that that doesn't mean terrorfexes because terrorfexes pin, Calgar only ignores morale checks, which are after a CC round. Who was right?
Second one: Do monsterous creatures get 2D6 pen against a monolith (I don't think they do, but it does say weapons, not special rules.).

2.) No, MC's don't get the extra d6. I'm pretty sure it's spelled in the Living Metal entry, but I could be wrong. That said, as a DE player if you're using a talos, instead of the extra d6 you get a bonus to penetrate based on the number of time you hit. It's not much but at least gives the S7 talos a chance of causing some damage.
The Necron codex specifically mentions MC's don't get to roll 2D6 to penetrate (page 21 of the Codex). However, I see no reason why the Talos' special penetration ability shouldn't work.
ME because me is always right. just kidding mate i agree you were right. space marine players are so conseted any way because they are even over powered in there fluff
What do you call a lasgun with a lazer scope?
a twin linked lasgun.... HA haha haha
Meh its already been answered fully but what the heck I just wanna say that its another reason to love the terrorfex (and horrorfex).
And next time you play him make sure you've a rule book on hand, don't want anymore dodgy rules.
Your opponent was wrong in this case, but then the whole Morale / Leadership differentiation is quite a common misconception against new players from what I have seen.
I know the new Marines have some powerful units, so if anything I make sure I'm well aware of the limitations of their rules and abilities.
The fluff issue is also a common mistake - if you read any bit of 40k fluff the "overpowered" race tends to be the one the book is about. Imperial Guard seem to have a knack for killing say, Chaos Marines in their books. That doesn't generally happen in Chaos Marine books. It's the same for most of the others too.
