Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has any ideas/suggestions for how The Pestilent Swarm could be converted to 40k? My friend discusses a few ideas in this video but we'd love to get some input from other 40k veterans.

Most of it translates perfectly to 40k as the demon models are the same across both systems.

The big dude is an easy sell for a soul grinder/plague hulk, and the big plague warriors could be great plague marines (I really like the idea of giant plague marines) or terminators. If there's anyway to salvage the rider from the huge dude you could easily turn him into a sorcerer of nurgle or a nurgle herald on a palanquin.

Was in my local GW and there was a guy who had the big dudes arm cut off and replaced with one of the multi barelled cannons from the maulerfiend box set. The width and proportions were a perfect match and he fields it as a nurgle soul grinder.

Myself I love the blight box set. They are crying out to be converted to plague terminators.

Soul grinders are much larger than the dude included in the prestilent swarm. Pretty sure they have a bigger foot print than the glotkin too.
