Go To

I turn my attention away from propaganda and toward the scorch marks on the canyon walls above us. I can tell by their inconsistent pattern that they don't come from bombs, but from sorcery, and I wonder what kind it is. The Fire-Spitters on both sides are all dead. There are just a handful of Wormers left in the world. They say the only wizards to survive this long into the war are the Smiling Toms and the Changers.
They've always said wizards would decide the fate of this war. I find it funny, because they're almost all gone.
We're almost all gone.
War Cry, by Brian McClellan

An army of Druchii does not fight with silvered steel alone, for their are other powerful forces which can be bent to the will of a brave general. Call upon the Convents of the Sorceresses and entreat their aid, for their magical prowess will blight the warriors of the opposing army, scorch their souls from their bodies and bring ruination and curses aplenty upon their heads. Be careful in your dealings with these beautiful creatures, though, for there is always a price to pay for their aid... always!
Warhammer: Dark Elves Army Book (6th Edition)

In times of strife, the Phoenix King will beseech the Tower of Hoeth for aid, and the Loremasters of Saphery never shirk from their duty. The mages who accompany the High Elf armies are truly masters of their art: with skill derived through arduous study they deflect the spells of the enemy, becalming the Winds of Magic themselves as they put years of learning and lore into practice. A swiftly-spoken incantation by a High Elf mage can embolden wavering allies, summoning the Golden Age of Ulthuan into the minds of the High Elves and steadying fearful hearts. Likewise, a mage can immolate an entire regiment of enemy warriors - directing the vengeful fires of Asuryan against the foe and blasting flesh from bone.
