Stone Golem Gladiator

An enemy for a fantasy gladiator campaign I was planning to run in the GURPS Banestorm setting.

IQ 8 Per 8 SM +0

Great Axe (14): 2d+6 cut. Reach 1,2*. Note: 8 lbs.; check for weapon breakage on Parry.
Punch (12): 1d cr. Reach C. Parry 10.

Traits: Clay Golem (from GURPS Magic, includes some of the traits mentioned here for reference); Combat Reflexes; DR 5; Hidebound; High Pain Threshold; Injury Tolerance (Homogenous, No Blood); Unfazeable; Unnatural.
Skills: Brawling-12; Two-Handed Axe/Mace-14.
