Default [Codex Daemons] Which is your favorite Greater Daemon and why?

Just curious what Greater Demons were the most preferable in the new codex. Fluff reasons are okay, but I'm really looking for their effectiveness on the board. I'm looking at picking one up and wanted to see what other people thought.

Personally, I'm partial to the Lord of Change and then maybe the Bloodthirster...

Subject Title altered to keep this poll from being another "which is best" poll. Edited. - Anton.

I like the keeper of secret's because its just looks cool IMO and it seems really deamon like as it it rediculously fast and awesome with weapons.

My favorite Greater Daemon is the Great Unclean One, for the simple fact that it is perhaps the most resilient and effective killing machine I've ever seen. The ability to wound on 2's all of the time is astounding, heck even felling a Wraithlord is easy with the Great Unclean one. With Feel No Pain combined with the ability to ignore Instant Death just simply makes this big, bad yet smelly monster utterly invincible. Of course my ultimate, favorite Greater Daemon has to be Ku'Gath, he is just, as Brucie Kibbutz from GTA 4 would put it "Totally Alpha!" and "Genetically different baby!" ;D

I have to agree with Anton here. The Great Unclean One is amazing.

However, it could also be the nurgle in me speaking :P

The Great Unclean One. Not only is he lovable, generous and good natured, but he also murders everything in his path! ;D

I love the Great Unclean One, simply because of that story when one eats a Nurgling.

Thanks for the switch Anton. Owe you one

Wow, I never would've guessed the GUO would've gotten such a good response. I figured he would've been so slow dragging himself across the table... very interesting.

For fluff reasons I like the Keeper of Secrets, I'm a closet Slaanesh lover I guess. A giant, beguiling, multi-breasted daemon with giant claws dancing and ripping its way through swaths of mortals is awesome imagery indeed.

But based on looks alone my favorite GD would be the Lord of Change. He's the best-looking metal GD that GW makes in my opinion. Almost makes me want to play Tzeentch just so I could plop it down on a table. So I don't really know where my loyalties lie.

The others cost too much. GUO is the only one who costs roughly as much as 2 heralds.
