Shambling Colossus is a monster found in the expansion The Chains that Rust.

Description[]

Crafted from bone and bits of scrap, the colossuses of the Mistlands are part golem, part undead monstrosity. It seems clear that they are created by necromancers - perhaps using secrets given to them by Waiqar the Undying - but all else about their origins is shrouded in mystery.

Whatever their nature, shambling colossuses are terrifically strong; their sharp, bony spurs are capable of puncturing even the thickest armor. With every step they scream in agony, a gruesome act that tests the resolve of the most seasoned adventurers.
