Khalkotauroi are massive bronze bulls carved by Dwarves and given life. Ridden by high ranking Dwarves in battle these massive beasts are terrors either on the battle field or in caverns deep below ground.

Any who are able to kill a Khalkotauoi find that it reverts back to bronze (2,500lbs worth) with a large ruby in place of it's heart. Of course many who kill these beasts never know or bother hacking the ruby out of that much bronze.

Looks good. Are you going to use it as part of an Ancient Greece Campaign?

You've got the AC and attack bonuses 1 point too high for how you've listed it - large size imposes a -1 penalty to both.

Well, if you are looking for pieces of an ancient greek campaign, I'm about to post myself Talos.

Gonna make it large, but advances to colossal, to be a more general bronze golem.
