So my friend was complaining that his skink priests were the only hero wizards with access to a single lore of magic. I was able to prove him wrong with my knowledge of lore availibilty, but I thought it would be good to get a list of what armies can take what lores., divided by Lords and Heroes.


High Elves
Lords: All 8 main lores, plus High Magic
Heroes: All 8 main lores, plus High Magic

Wood Elves
Lords: Life, Beasts, Athel Loren
Heroes: Athel Loren

Dark Elves
Lords: Dark Magic, Fire, Shadow, Metal, Death
Heroes: Dark Magic, Fire, Shadow, Metal, Death

Lizardmen
Lords: All 8 main lores
Heroes: Heavens

Dwarfs
No wizards

Some people prefer to make complaining their main aspect of the hobby.

Wood Elves have access to three lores, heroes ONLY get a non-BRB lore.

ogres: gut magic
necromancers: necromancy
As I recall orc and goblin casters get the big waaaagh and little waaaagh lores respectively.
Skaven warlocks and plague priests each get their own lore and none other.

Then there is the wild card of the Wizards Hat from the BRB. Or does that one not count? :P

Vampires get the law of vampires, but can pay to access any lore (apart from life).

And there's also Necromancers that are limited to only a couple of spells from the lore of vampires.

By non-BRB lore it may be fair to expand this to "one of the worst lores in the game" ;)

Heavens is not a bad lore at all to be "stuck" with. It does skew things a bit when you compare to Empire battle-wizards or High Elf mages I suppose, but then Lizardmen have plenty of stuff to play with anyway, including that infernal Engine of the Gods, and in 8th edition it's easier to take Lords now anyway where before smaller games simply couldn't at all.
