Hi, I wanted to ask, does the sigmar prayer healing hand heal full wound, for example a steam tank down to 1 wound, would it go back up to 10?

I though it only healed 1 wound

Healing hand heals all wounds suffered.
However, they only work on character's or unit champions.

So not steam tanks.

What Champion in the Empire book could possibly benefit from it? :confused:

He's still a more valid target than a steam tank is though.

I think he means what Champ would'nt be dead after 1 wound? :confused:

The bit about "may target any friendly character or unit champion within 12 inches" is the general description of what prayers of Sigmar are like. It's true that you could never heal a champion, but you could totally give one a 4+ ward, or allow him to re-roll his hits and wounds. Recently, I gave a swordsmen champ a 4+ ward, and damn if he didn't kill a death hag in a challenge and cause her unit to break. So, it's not a stupid rule, it's just one you can't apply to 1/5 of the prayers.

It may well not do anything but he's still a valid target for the spell.
Unlike the steam tank.

Does ogres can be "friendly" in multi player games??

If so, you got your answer! But no empire champion could benefit from it.

You could target a lord, with 1 our of 3 wounds left..

The model would be dead after taking 1 Wound if it has 1 Wound on its profile. While there are currently no Empire champion models with more than 1 Wound on their profile, you may end up in an alliance with an army that does include such models.

For example, an Empire army and a Skaven army in an alliance are desperate allies. While the other army is not considered friendly, a Rat Ogre champion model (with 3 wounds on his profile) in the Skaven army is a valid target for the Healing Hand because it is a unit champion and the spell does not require the target to be a friendly model or even an Empire model.

Yet you specifically can't target Allies with your spells unless you're Trusted or Suspicious Allies.

Ah, yes. Well, an alliance with an Ogre army then. :) Plenty of potential for 3 Wound champions there!

Except that the spell can be used on characters as well, so lords with a 3 wound profile are a great candidate for the spell.
