Do you think this would work well? Do you think that this is worth the 45 points for the two items to potentially most hero level characters before the game essentially starts? Does it even work, because im not sure if 'wounds caused by the bearer on the nominated target are doubled' counts if it is caused by the blood statuette.
That won't work, since you can only take 1 Enchanted Item per character. And they're both enchanted items...
But separately they're usefull too.
Most wizards are weak (except Tzeentch, Slann and Vampires), so you have a good chance to kill one with the Blood Statuette of Spite.
And the Bane Head is good against uber strong character, Chaos Lords, Vampire Lords, Greater Deamons, lords on dragons etc. But against average characters (in survivability I mean) like humans and elves, they aren't really needed. A Scar-vet or Oldblood has enough power to kill them on his own. But against equals, like the ones named above, the extra edge the Bane Head gives is surely welcome.
bane head+oldblood with big weapon=character killer
i didnt do it it was him 'onest boss
Chaos wizards on the whole aren't "weak" - Daemons are pretty self-explanatory, all mortal casters are at least T4 and clad in Chaos Armour, possibly riding a barded mount.
Even Beastmen are quite durable, with what T4 at least and the possibility of taking Chaos Armour. (Or, in the case of Wargors/Beastlords of Tzeentch, all sorts of magical and mudnane armours)
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
Maybe not weak, but they're not killing machines like Tzeentch and Vampires (though on the matter of Deamons you're right). Nor do they have T5, 6-8 wounds and a bigtime ward save like Slann.
