Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been staring at WoC a little, kinda leaning towards a marauder heavy army with a unit of chosen, maybe 2 in larger games but i digress.
I've been staring at this Army Book and unless i'm reading it wrong, do marked Sorcerers HAVE too take the lore specific too their god? or can you take a marked wizard with fire or shadows etc.
Thanks in advance
Correct. Marked mages MUST take the mark's lore. Luckily, the mark lores are pretty darn good.
Only time you can get around that is with a book of secrets. Like a tzeentch character with the BoS, gets the extra +1 to cast and can choose one of the 3 lores from the book. Good to get a pseudo lv2 shadow.
Same can be said about making a wizard and using the thirdeye to use your opponent's spells.
Best time I've had with that was a fire wizard blasted some dryads with a branchwraith to pieces, he decides to flee back into the woods with that unit, so next phase I steal his treesing and smash the rest of the unit that way.
