This is a question regarding WYSIWYG with a empire wizard.
In warhammer events if you model a bright wizard from the box does the wizard have to use only fire magic?
In a tournament settingI would have to say yes but outside of that in friendly games just run it by your opponent and they shouldn't have any problem with it. If they don't let you use it as something else use a bright wizard burn their a$$ down and if their too anal about it just go on and play someone else.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
It also depends on how you model it, if you combine a few items it can be a number of different lores.
Yeah, you could make a wizard look like fire, metal or light if you really tried.

To answer the original question, I don't think it matters what a wizard looks like, as long as I know which Lore he/she is using, and the model has some identifiable feature that I can associate with a particular group of spells in any given game.
For instance, with my dark elves, if I ever take multiple spellcasters I'll say that (for example) the one with the swirly magical cloud is a level four with the lore of X and the one with the long cloak and the pointy hat is a level two with the lore of Y. That's just an example, but my point is that as long as this sort of thing is made clear to your opponent, there is no problem with wizards not being WYSIWYG.
