Warrior Priest is a Empire melee infantry unit introduced in Total War: Warhammer. These men wade into battle with conventional weapons, but can also call powerful magical forces to decimate their enemies.
The Cult of Sigmar demands that its followers fight all forms of evil with martial feats as well as with faith, so many of its priests accompany the Empire's armies as they march to war. In this role, they not only lead and inspire troops in battle, but also minister to their spiritual well-being. Warrior priests are clad in ceremonial vestments and armour adorned with symbols of holy hammers, twin-tailed comets and other religious icons. They shave their heads as a sign of devotion and they carry all manner of strange fetishes made of iron, wood and bone. Many Warrior Priests further adorn themselves with scrolls detailing war oaths and parchments written in the blood of martyrs.
Warrior Priests are a solid support unit that are quite versatile. Their abilities provide a strong amount of utility to the battlefield. Soulfire is a strong ability for clearing out poorly armoured infantry around the warrior priest or otherwise damaging blobs of enemies. Shield of Faith allows them to signficiantly reduce damage taken to allies around them, which can be pivotal in a critical engagement. The hammer of Sigmar allows the Warrior Priest's allies to go on the offensive and boosts theirs melee attack significantly. Divine Power is niche, but can make enemy wizards miscast even on standard spells when close to the priest.
The Warrior Priest can be unmounted and help give the Empire front line some support that can allow them to hold longer or even win a front line fight. They also can go mounted and ride with Reiksguard or Empire Knights, using their abilities to support them and damage enemies.
