I played a 1500 point game recently and I beat the Tau player. My lith DS on the 3rd turn into the middle of the board and the middle of the firefight. By then I had already killed his Broadsides and Hammerheads so he couldn't hurt the lith. Was it then beardy of me to then use it to destroy the rest of his army knowing he couldn't hurt it? Or was it bad generalship/ luck on his behalf?
Assuming he had the opprotunity to destroy in the first place, but lost due to bad generalship, your in the good. If you told him it was there, you're good. If you didn't and bam it popped out of no where, your in the bad and he deserves a rematch. (I'd give it to him anyway, 2-3 makes bad generals feel a little better) Try blaming it on the over lapping of your armies.

I would say that if it was a friendly, it was a bit unsportsmanlike - it's really quite powergamey to make it impossible to kill such a powerful unit. Next time, tell him it's coming - he'll be more careful.

Hmm. . . I thought the standard tactic was to ignore/avoid the Monolith and just shoot the Necrons.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

Not for Tau, they suck at killing basic Necrons (no power weapons no S8+ AP3) but have Railguns the best things for shooting don pesky Monoliths save Demolishers.

Whoa whoa whoa!
The lith wasn't a suprise when it came down. We both saw eachothers army lists before the game started, (we also both commented about how eachothers list was fair). I was also rolling for reserves for turns 2 and 3, so he knew when it was going to arrive. It's just that when it did arrive the only things that could hurt the lith were already killed off.
Hope that clears the situation a little.
Howdy, all. So, this is what the Necron forum look like. Wow, it's more organnic than I expected.
Anyway, first up, I hate the term "beardy" and "cheesy", there is no such thing. There is styles of play, (one mans cheese is another mans whine and all that). That being said, he knew he was playing Necrons, it kinda sounds like he tailored his army, if he wasn't prepped to face the nastiest you have, that's his problem. Mind you, it does sound like a friendly, so, maybe a rematch is in order. Of course this time you could field a C'Tan and really mess him up.:w00t: Also, in a friendly, if I hit a point in the game where the win is confirmed and the battle is over, I'll ussually concede or, (in the rare case that I am winning), suggest a concession. Then, time permitting you start another game. I do this due to the fact that you ussally reached that point due to a mistake or REALLY bad luck. Hopefully in the rematch, the error or luck doesn't repeat itself.

well then he just did a bad job. but still in a friendly game, i generally avoid super units such as the monolith.

I want everyone to remeber why they need us!
Aye, basically, if they had the capability to destroy it during the game, but you were able to take them out, that's just good strategy. If they're unable to counter it from the start (i.e. tyranids and dark eldar), then that's just lame.
Also, the thread about the chances of destroying a monolith; are all those figures up to date?
This tau player wasn't beyond winning, he'd just need alot of luck to win because theres still the possibility with very good dice rolls that he could make the necron army phase out and thus winning without having to kill the monolith.
