Rumor says that mounted GWs are going back to +2 str, so you could mount the WK on a barded steed and have a 3+AS. Just watch out for cannonballs.
I find whenever I take the black axe I screwed and he ends up being matched-up against things with 1 wound all game. I think for the points the Sword of Kings is a more affordable addition to the WK. The black axe has the potential to be pretty badass but for the points and usefulness I think it becomes more situational.
Looking into the future of 8th edition-I see the use of more "ogre" sized infantry and coupled with the rumored new mounted rules for 2-handers; I would recommend and can foresee the increase in the use of the Black Axe.
