Is the zoanthrope and a carnifex the only real weapon that we have against a monolith?
yea i'd like to know the same, assaulting the lith isn't a great idea, i know with eldar my other race shooting up necrons is easy but, how do u take out a lith aside from a venom cannon
Venom Cannons and Warp Blasts are pretty much all we have. Close combat is not an option, except for with a Carnifex -- but even then, the Venom Cannon will probably do a better job.
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.

Carnifex with bioplasma in CC is the best bet: 4+ to hit, penetration is 10+d6.
Getting the fex to the monolith can be just as hard as with any CC fex, or can be surprisingly easy if the necron player does that annoying thing where they deepstrike right in the middle of the horde to use the gauss thingers.
I Guess I Need To Get 2 More Zoanies Then. That Will Surely Draw A Lot Of Fire Away From Other Things.
Check this thread, where the options were pretty well covered:

I hate to say it, but, the best way to deal, IMO, with a 'Lith is to ignore it. Go for phase out.

Agree. As a necro player the best thing to due is just go for phase out. Get a squad of stealers into combat you you will wipe out unit after units. MC also reak havoc against necrons.Originally Posted by THE Hersh

If someone helps you, or you just like what they say, rep them
Agree, ignoring the monolith and going straight for pahse out is usually the best to get rid of it.
Try using Lictors or Genestealers with feeder tendrils near a Carnifex. It wll then benefit from the feeder tendrils special rules and hit on a 3+.
