is using 4 shadow wizards bad? as in cheesey?
I'd like to field wizards from the same school/order

Same order isn't cheesy, but 4 wizards is a bit.

Otherwise, very fluffy, and you will limit your combat characters so could be good for a theme.

Compared to people who take 4 nurgle wizards you are a saint ;)

Aren't Shadow wizards mostly loners?

I'm going to guess that one of your heroes IS a combatant, as he has Van Horstman's little trinket, no? I think Shadow mages are the best for that combo because of their number one spell which gives the opportunity to launch into another lone character - and destroy him with the sword of justice or something similar. Where do you place your mages - in blocks, or are they loners? Just curious how you utilize your mages who have one of the coolest themes. I recommend the latest novel which features not only Skaven, but also Jeremiah Scrivener in "Greyseer." You'll see what I mean when you read it. :D

I tried it out against skaven - didnt do so well - I wanted to bring a fluff army thinking that if a wizard lord was entering a battle some more of his order would be close behind - grey may not have been the best choice because of the loners fluff -
