Having a look through the 4ed monster manual there is only 2 golems in it (flesh and stone). Now the DMs guide has rules on creating your own monsters, so Im looking to you guys for a few different types, heres what ive got so far
clay
wood
brass
fungi
paper (origami type)
bone

any others?

This forum kinda exists for actual Roleplaying. If this isn't happening in this thread, it would be better off else where.

ah, what a foolish fool I have been to think general roleplaying may be for roleplaying questions. I will take myself round the back of the sheds and a sound thrashing will be delivered

No problem mate, did a quick move to the Other Games section.


Now I have to say I really like the sound of that paper golem, would make for a very interesting opponent with unique abilities (papercut of death anybody ;))!
Some humble suggestions for other golem types, digging deep into my memories of D&D and Mage Knight minis for many of these:
- Elemental-themed golems always work great, though D&D does have a bunch of dedicated elementals already.
- Steam golem.
- Incendairy golem.
- Storm golem.
- Clay golem.
- Web Golem.
- Shield Golem.
- Isn't also a chain golem in D&D somewhere?

That would be the rather awesome Chain Devil:

Monster Manual II also has a rather interesting looking chain golem:
