What model do you use as your nobel/highborn
I used a dark steed from a dark rider, rider's legs from an Empire Knight, a dark eldar head, aan ordianary warriors sword, body and shield, the knight's right arm, a dark rider's crossbow, and I fasioned an additional hand weapon from a High Elf Spear. You could easily just but malus darkblade and give him a different head/arm.

An easy idea is to use a model of something you dont have a unit of in your army. For example..I dont have a unit of black guard so for my noble on foot I just use a black guard champion.
For a mounted noble, an ordinary Cold One knight does the job if you paint it a little differently. Cold One knights are supposed to be DE nobility anyway. I even used the dreadknight as a highborn for my dragon.
I wouldnt waste time/money on difficult conversions unless you actually enjoy it. There are easier options.

I used the 40k Dark Eldar lord with a few conversions. I took his claw off and replaced it with the Chariot crew's Halberd, turned slightly to have him holding it up so he could fit in a unit. I cut the pistol off the other hand and gave him an extra dark elf shield, I added a decapitated HE head I had to his belt, and voila! It required little time and looks wonderful, and he really stands out. I have fluff that he is an elite Black Guard hell bent on reclaiming his family land from the High Elves.
Malus darkblade makes for a good model that can be converted to be a noble on any sort of mount really.
I also like using the mounted lord of slaanesh or the lord of slaanesh on foot.
