Despite the pleas of my fellow gamers, I'm planning on starting up a Daemons of Chaos army and I have a future army list settled, easy peasy.
However, I would like it to be as cheap as humanly possible, this being hard considering I will never survive if I have to spend at least £12 to get me some flippin' Plaguebearers. Does anybody have any ideal conversion ideas for these putrid footsoldiers or should I just give up on them?

Unless you're really set on plaguebearers for some sort of aesthetic reason, give up on them. They're certainly the worst of the Daemon core choices. They're not worth putting a bunch of work into just for their gameplay value.
That said, I don't really know a good conversion for them, but there probably is one out there. Heresy miniatures makes a good set of plague-daemon models (though they're metal and probably more expensive. You can use plastic zombies to turn out a reasonable plague-bearer conversion--GW makes some, as do a handful of smaller manufacturers (which are likely to be cheaper).
Once again, the conservative, sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!
Plague bearers suck now, so save your money and get blood letters. They are better and cheaper money wise.
As for conversions, i used ghouls, but most people use zombies
