The Stone Calcibus, is not a new design but rather a re-imagining of a golem design done well over a year ago when I first started this blog (Conjurer & the Conjured). The spark which triggered this re-imagining was from my more recent golem inspired creations, the Rubber Golem & the Bone Calcibus, plus my desire to see just how far my skills have developed since them early sketches and what areas still require improvement.
The Stone Calcibus, also known as the Rubble or Stone Golem, is the final hive mind form of Calci (a gravity altering race of colonial microscopic entities) found inhabiting the ancient ruins and dungeons of their homeworld, Cheljm. Typically taking on the form of a humanoid consisting of broken statues and stone, the Stone Calcibus can bear a remarkable resemblance to the mythological golems and as such these mysterious creatures have acquired many myths of their own, most famously that they are the ancient guardians of hidden treasure’s and temples. This has lead them to gain another more whimsical name, “The Bouncers of the Past”.
