As far as I can see (before the days of the 40K daemon prince model) the only difference between a 40K D Prince and a Fantasy D Prince was that one had a round base and the other had a square base.
Do people feel the need to "pimp" a daemon prince to make him look like he should be a 40K rather then a Fantasy model?
All the fluff I've read has a D Prince bursting out of his armour and flying off leaving the bloody remains of his mortal host behind.
Greater Daemons don't get a 40K and Fantasy version - so I'm wondering if people bother with the distinction when it comes to a Daemon Prince.
EDIT: Does anyone feel that Daemon Princes and Great Daemons lack personality when compaired with Lords and Sorcerers?
I really like the 40K Demon Prince model because he looks like a huge demonic Chaos Marine. I think that adding little bits to indicate a 40K Prince rather than a fantasy Prince is cool, but certainly not mandatory. After all, once a guy gets supreme demonic power he really doesn't need power armor or bolters any more.
Though I'm a fan of the greater demons (especially the Bloodthirster), I think they could use a significant update. Specifically, more dynamic beasties would be cool. Also, it would be awesome if there was a GD plastic kit that allowed you to make any of the 4, or a generic one (kind of like the plastic giant kit for Warhammer). Although this probably isn't possible because the Greater Demons are so different from one another, as opposed to an Ork giant vs. a Chaos giant, where the bodies are essentially the same.
I love both of the 40k Daemon Princes, the models look brilliant, exactly what you would expect from a Chaos marine boosted to the levels of immortality.
But I think they Fantasy DPs suck. They are horrible models.
Hive Fleet Fuzzy Bunny: Lots and lots of points of Nids (4000pts+)
The Chapter of the Damned: 5500pts of Dark Angels
The Children of Fulgrim: 5-6000pts of Emperors Children
The Kabal of the Bloodied Claw: 2000pts of Dark Eldar
The fantasy DP are pretty bad. They really need a new model that is standard. However the special character DP is very cool so that one would be just fine.
The old Fantasy Daemon princes suck yes, but Be'lakor or however you spell it is an AMAZING model.
And the 40k daemon prince is rubbish. The Nurgle one is pretty cool, but the standard one is a bit too cartoony and marine-ish. He needs to be more of a Daemon!
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

What? He's perfect, he's one of GW's better models. What are you talking about? Cartoony... theres nothing cartoony about a daemon wield a 20 foot sword and explode out of his armor. If anything the Nurgle one is cartoony with the eyes, gaping chin and stomach. Blah.
I agree the 40K Daemon Prince is awesome with a few tweaks! 8Y
It is a phenomenally detailed model that is very rewarding to paint. I just cannot fathom why anyone doesn't like the DP model.
I would like to have god-specifiv add-ons. Like differernt heads, hands, weapons and shoulder guards for every god.
I too like the 40k Daemon Prince model, but he looks a bit generic if you want to give him a mark of one of the gods. That's why I ordered a Winged Nightmare head for mine - it looks sufficiently birdlike and has tusks, I just hope that the scale is right so that it doesn't look too weird. Now, without turning this into too much of a modelling topic, what kind of wings do you use and where do you stick them?
Yer i hate the fantsy Dp too,i also think that the greater demons for 40k should be a bit diffrent from the fantsy ones.
