Default Hammer of Sigmar Question.

Can Hammer of Sigmar be used for improving ranged to-hit and to-wound of the target model it is cast on? Suppose I had a Warrior Priest and decided to cast the spell on an Outrider Champion armed with a Hochland Rifle...would Hammer of Sigmar improve my chances of going HEADSHOT?

The Hammer of Sigmar only ever let's reroll wounds in combat, i believe.

I am interested in picking up 7th ed empire (have the 6th-ed book), and the 6th ed book allows the model in question to reroll to wound. It doesn't say anything about being in combat...

That said, I know the 7th ed allows the target to reroll to hit and to wound...how would that affect something like say...an Engineer with Pidgeon bombs?

Well, let me see my book.

*gets up and force pulls it over*

Ahh, here on page 53:

As long as you can keep the Engineer within 12" I see no problem then, but re-roll to wound? Do you mean the chart?

Not the chart...for that I intended to use Second Sign of Amul. What I meant was for the 5-6 result, when I landed a hit, could the Hammer of Sigmar allow the engineer to reroll partials/to wound targets hit by the Pidgeon Bomb?

Yes, potentially, but why would you want to do that when you can use him as a sniper?

I "COULD" but I like the idea of having a blast attack that doesn't scatter. That said, does the Second Sign of Amul allow rerolling artillery dice?

NO artillery dice-> Saves, hit & wound. Second sing is NOT a number one spell anymore mate, which means you've got to roll ^_^. Pick up 7th edition mate.

On pigeon bombs is technically a missile weapon, but it doesn't roll to hit, so no hammer + that. However if you DO hit, then wounds can be re-rolled.
Just give him a rifle and call it a day, or give rifle to some of you hand gunners as hammer can be cast on champions and allows re-roll hit/wound -> says nothing about combat .

P.S. MagicJuggler -> Advise, I see you have lots of questions concerning empire... Make a topic and call "Empire and ME" and dump them there. Less confusion

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!
