You transform an existing construct into a powerhouse of hardened iron, similar to the effect of the iron body spell. The construct gains damage reduction 15/adamantine. It takes half damage from acid and fi re attacks of all kinds. Even if it is not a golem, however, it becomes vulnerable to all special attacks that affect iron golems.

The construct gains a +4 enhancement bonus to Strength, but takes a –4 penalty to Dexterity as well (to a minimum Dexterity of 1). The construct’s weight increases by a factor of five.

Material Component: A small piece of iron that was once part of an iron golem, a hero’s armor, or a war machine.
