Default What are Warrior Priests capable of?

Title sums it up. In fluff terms, what can Warrior Priests do magic wise, what kind of abilities do they have. I've only got one of the Empire army books and haven't read any warhammer fantasy novels, if there even are any that feature them. Cheers

I dunno really, In game terms they can do stuff but when you read about them in books, they are treated just like normal men.

they call apon Sigmar to bless them this has had quite a few different effects from super human strength to a massive fireball to healing.

They are almost always armed with a war hammer in one hand and a holy book in the other.

Counter-spells of extreme power (like in Burning Shore), inspirational leadership, blessings upon troops, and the really strong, experienced ones can kill Vampires by showing them the Hammer of Sigmar.
