Alright, i've noticed that basically everyone at my local gw store pretty much plays crons, and basically all those people have liths in their army, and im just wondering what the most effective strategy for the de to use against an army with a lith is...lets say their army list looks likes this
5 scarab swarms
1 lord w/ res orb, phase shifter, and phalanx (SP)
or perhaps army list B:
5 scarab swarms
i realize most people would say "just avoid the lith and phase em out"...but i've soon realized that that is easier said and done...how should i really go about beating these armies (A and . Please only give input if you actually have experience in dealing with liths (playing as the DE of course), or have at least watched someone deal with the lith
It's hard i know, My Cron friend got owned by my DE when he DIDN'T have a lith. Then he got one, then things started to change.....
You must keep shooting it with the DL. Yes i know, but you need the DL to crack open destroyers, immortals, scarab swarms and the deadly lord /w destroyer body. The phase out rule is useless when the Lith is wiping out your warriors. You can get lucky with the DL. There isn't any better way of getting the job done. Any unit which tries to assault it and doesn't get the job done will be shot like mad next turn, so the DL is the only way. If you lose, start bitching with "man, if you didn't have that block of black cheese on the table i would have wiped you off the table! RE-MATCH!!!" Worked for me.....DL all the way.
R U 0K!??!? BUHHHHST WUUUULFFFFF!!!
The most dangerous thing about the lith is its deepstriking ability. After that, it is the slowest vehicle in the game. It shouldn't be too hard to simply fly away with your raiders.
In average, with all the lance shots that you need in order to destroy a lith, you can make the necron army phase out, so don't even try to destroy the lith. It's a waste of firepower.
I agree. Go for 3 3 Dis Ravagers and just shoot away at his T5 models.
THE MONILOTH IS A MASSIVE THREAT TO YOUR WYCHES raider and squad.
So charge them with a wyche squad with 2 blasters not that good but still a chance then 9 haywire grenades followed by some nice agonising should get rid of your problames. I have played 15 games against crons and only 2 tiimes has it failed and that was because the destroyers were near by so i had to move into btb with them so i couldn't attack the lith with grenades.
:huh: <_< :unsure: :blink: :ph34r: :a 8| < :rolleyes:
The statistical chance that a lith survives this attack (10 haywires) is 72%...the other damage results can be quite annoying for it too though. But still, there is an enormous chance that you waste a quite expensive squad.
Besides that, this tactic implies that the monolith already is on the table, in this case the most dangerous part of its actions (deepstriking into your lines) already has happened. You could simply move away from it at that time.
Remember, the 'lith is a skimmer so it can only be hit on 6 in HTH. With only one haywire attack per model, you're only going to get one or two hits, and a lith is 'ponderous' so an immobilized result only downs it, it doesn't kill it. And you can't really take out the weapon, either. And if it just deep struck in, you're walking a fine line between being in assault range next turn and getting gauss flux arced to death this turn.Originally posted by Tajormackedmorphinelongname@Feb 9 2004, 122

Yup....lots of ppl use the wrong tactics then scream cheese.
The best way to kill Necrons (and most armies) is Mass Dissies.
You can have statistics to prove anything 95% of all people know that and only 47% actually bother to try out things but there are people that use their statistical powers to say it can't be done but it's all with the luck of the dice 74% of all people know that.
Plus warhammer is 40% tactics and 60% dependant on the dice you can't win a game roling 1 all the time 99.9% of all people know that.
The result that statistics predict of course doesn't have to occur - but it's more likely than the others.
E.g. i bet fifty bucks, you do the same, on a D6 roll of 5+ you win, 4- and i win. Would you take part in that bet? No? That's because of the same reason which should stop you from trying to destroy a 'lith with haywires.
