So I picked up a Monolith. I had a weak moment. I hadn't bought anything 'new' for 40K for quite a while and I just love the model.
I put this behemoth together as quickly as I could and I slapped the first few stages of paint on it.
I had a game coming up so I got it in the list, but it was a horrible unit, and with first turn I got 1 full turn of decent shooting out of it, and in T2 it was destroyed.
The best part of it was it deflected some attention off of my Void Dragon.
Here's a pic for proof!
So I know something changed in the FAQ favoring Necrons taking a Super Heavy (Monolith), but I can't remember what it is....
I did find the random D6 shots a horrible feature on a nearly 400 point unit (I took 4 of the weapon upgrades).
Anyway, I wonder if anyone has found some truly useful way of running this thing? I had trouble keeping it alive, and found the lack of Invuln in today's super potent offensive game to be a huge handicap. I think one SoB tank took 18 wounds off of it. The Repentia (Multi Melta's) could have easily destroyed it in turn 1, but I was too far away.
Right now I feel like the monolith's only use is teleporting warriors, but I'd like to think I'm just missing something. Any thoughts?
