Do the units that draw a line of sight to the Casket use the general's leadership value to determine how many wound the unit takes?
Would you take Casket of souls into a small game, say, 1000 points? It'd have the potential to destroy half the enemies' armies.
Yes. A units Ld is always taken as its greatest possible value, and if the General is in range then his Ld is always conferred.
As for using it in 1K games, yes it has massive potential, but the huge amount of points used up in TP, LP, LP Casket (whats that... 500pts?) leaves very little room for much else. It would be interesting, but i think an SSC is generally the preferred option. Still, give it a go, could be fun/destructive
Do bear in mind that in small games, the effect of the default 2 dispell dice is much greater.

I think it comes to a conclusion
If you know how to distribute your Incantations and MWbDs by your characters well, then the casket is a good choice. Make your enemy choose what magic he wants to be successfull (Does he want your chariots to flank his precious unit with his general inside, OR does he want to gamble in letting the casket to be opened).
If you are not familiar with how to use the Incantations well, then the casket is a bad choice. You have to make him to choose in your magic phase (between death by swords and spears or the light of death ofc!).
But then it is these simple factors... They are often forgotten in an army that always cause at least fear. The casket causes terror! It is strong to have a Terror-causing unit in field in a 1k pts battle
And the casket gives your enemy wizards -1 to cast, a wonderful song to hear in the ears of a veteran
Now I Really Hope It Helps!
