I am currently trying to figure out the best sorcerer combo within a 500 pts limit. Since I know this is very dependant on what army list I would be using so here's mine: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ml#post1480131 (Competitive All Cavalry, Cost effective, 2000 pts). So basicaly, the sorcerers needs to be mounted and should provide support for a knight heavy army. I already have 2 hero in my list so I can only include 2 more.
Now this is what I got for the moment. If we look at point cost, we get (I assume no mark and a barded steed):
lvl4 + lvl2 = 430
2x lvl2 = 272
In the first this gives 70 pts left for Mark and Magic Items (8PD and 5DD). In the second list, this leaves 228 pts (6PD and 4DD). Clearly, the first option seems preferable.
If I look at marks, I feel the lvl2 should have a Mark of Tzeentch or Nurgle, since the first spell in these lore are quite good. For the lvl4, I am not so sure I need a mark.
If I look at magic items I really need, I see 4: Dispel Scroll, Spell Familiar, Book of Secret and Power Familiar. Note that the BoS and PF can actually save me 10 pts if I replace the lvl2 upgrade from one sorcerer.
From the above discussion I came up with this setup:
Sorcerer Lord, Lvl4 with Steed, Dispel Scroll and Spell Familiar: 334pts
Sorcerer of Tzeentch, Lvl1 with Steed, Book of Secret and Power Familiar: 171pts
Total: 505 pts
7 spells, 9 PD, 5 DD and 1 scroll.
The lvl1 can cast 2 missile spell using 3 dice. This leaves 6 PD for the lvl4 and his 5 spells (and he can chose his lore). The magic defence is somewhat lacking with 5 DD and 1 scroll but I feel it is Ok, since I will probably use some MR on my heroes (Collar of Khorne).
So, can anyone come up with something equivalent or better? and go ahead propose any other mark, magic items you feel more powerful....

Still 500 pts of magic defense is a little to much.
Maybe if the sorcerer lord is getting some combat upgrades, it would be interesting. Chaos Runesword with enchanted shield makes a pretty decent CC setup for a sorcerer lord and you still have points for a dispel scroll.
