ill go out there and say it, im pretty cheep when it comes to buying things... i was wondering, is it against any rules (looked in the 40k rulebook, couldn't find it, if it is... please direct me to a page) but is there anything that stops me from using the fantasy bases for my 40k models?
cheers in advance

It's perfectly fine. The only rule about bases states that they have to be modeled on the bases they came with, which for Daemons includes both round and square bases. It's how I run my Daemon army, along with everyone else I know who has Daemons (except for the occasional person who runs the core choices on round bases with special movement trays).
I've run square based Daemons for years, including at tournaments, and never had an issue. Even hardcore tournaments...ran square based Daemons two straight years at the Adepticon Team Tourney and 40k Championships, with not the slightest issue raised.
In a lot of places (particularly LGS's where most players do both 40k and Fantasy) square based Daemons is pretty much the norm. After all, it doesn't even have to do with being cheap...if the units can be used in both Fantasy and 40k, and you play both, no reason not to use them. My initial approach at Daemons built an army that could be played pretty much with the exact same models (the 3 units of 10 Pink Horrors in FB because 6 units of 5 Pink Horrors in 40k, etc). I've since branched out the armies a bit, but it was really helpful, since I was simultaneously building a new army for 5th edition and really just getting into Fantasy.
So absolutely go for it.
