Been toying with the idea of Daemons now since the Codex was released last May. The thing that appealed to me was a the sheer variety, and the conversion options available to me.
I think at the moment I have settled on an Epidemus list - to take to a Doubles Tournament in October with a friend of mine using Nurgle Chaos Marines.
However, the appeal to me of Daemons was that I flat out don't like metal minis - so I could convert existing metal miniatures from plastic minis.
For example, I'm going down the Crypt Ghoul > Plaguebearer route, Epidemus I'm gonna make from a Corpse Cart and lots of Green stuff.
I've stumped myself on how to make myself a Great Unclean One and Daemon Princes however.
The idea was to use a Warhammer Giant, with lots of Gribbly bits, a PLague Sword / Scythe - basically a huge Plaguebearer. However, I'm concerned on the size of this, like, how big is a Giant compared to a Great Unclean one model in real life? Had a look for a pic comparison on the web but no luck.
Also, I want 3 Winged Iron Hide Daemon Princes for the list as my Heavy Support choices, again, which need to be plastic and I'm going to be impatient and not wait for the Plastic DP to surface. I was thinking of using LOTR Mordor Trolls as they're suitably tough, armoured and carry massive swords, but need something to use as Wings on them.
Would Dragon wings be too big? If so, what else could be used?
Any and all suggestions welcome people!

Lots and lots of green stuff, plain and simple. I use green stuff, and extra random/incomplete figures I had lying around. A good many of them are from a Lord of the Rings starter set (the fellowship has fallen to chaos ^_^).
As for the Daemon Princes and Great Unclean ones, a giant would be too big. I made mine out of a warhammer fantasy troll and a lot of green stuff. Virtually any large figure will work well, as long as you have enough greenstuff, and it looks good on a large round base. For added effect, I added a few nurglings onto his body, to give the appearance of them bursting out of his body.
For wings, I'd actually look for wings from non-games workshop models. The games workshop wings are too rare and expensive, as few models have them. As long as most of the model is made from GW parts, it doesn't matter if the wings came from another toy.
