It is the most iconic model in the entire line, perhaps in the entire game. The Monolith is just one of those amazing models that I recall when it first was released. It was an amazing model, and everyone and their brother just had to have one. Of course this was a long time ago, way back at a great little gameshop that I first started playing at, the Game Vault.

Now we have some updates on exactly what this iconic vehicle might be looking like with the new Necron codex right around the corner.


Please remember that these are rumors and salt is required.

The Basics
Everyone's favorite lunchbox of doom is said to cost roughly 200pts, and keep its current 14/14/14 Armor all round. It is a Skimmer, Tank that can Deepstrike as usual. The Monolith can fire all its weapons regardless of movement. Its Living Metal (in its new form) remains.

The Guns
In big news, the four corner mounted Gauss Flux Arcs remain, but are said to each be able to split fire and nail separate targets in some manner. The top mounted Ring Pop is now a standard ordinance weapon without all the fiddly rules.

The Glowy Door!!!
But by far, the biggest change is said to be the glowy door, now renamed The Eternal Gate - which now has a nasty offensive ability. The Gate can make all models within 3" take a Strength characteristic test - or risk being sucked into the gate and removed from play with no saves of any kind allowed.
