Is there anything to prevent a Doombull joining a unit of Chaos Warhounds, and if not, does anyone consider this a viable tactic?

I was thinking of doing this and using the unit as a flank/countercharge unit, as it is pretty fast, although IIRC warhounds don't get rank bonus' do they?

It was mainly an idea based on appearance - see my Doombull model is actually an ogre sized Warewolf (I believe it's the Varghar model from the Confrontation range) and I thought it would look pretty cool to have him surrounded by a massive pack of wolves.

Any thoughts on the matter?

warhounds do indeed get a rank bonus, it's actually in the description (at least in the hordes of chaos book)

It will look good but that's it.

Gamewise it would be a conflict of purposes - Warhounds are used to lure and distract while Doombulls hit hard.
The unit as a whole will have to move at a slower pace.
In combat the Warhounds will be targeted and the unit including the strongest character, the Doombull might break.
