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.
