Iron golems were constructs made entirely out of iron. These iron behemoths were very powerful, thanks to their magic immunity, poisonous breath attack, and the fact that they could take a hero's head off with a swipe of their arm.[2]


The average iron golem was about 12 feet (3.6 meters) tall and weighed 5,000 pounds (2300 kilograms).[1]


Iron golems were not only used by mortals; the gnome god Flandal Steelskin also sent them to the Material Plane to do his bidding.[5]
