Default Guilliman conversion help

Yo guys imve got a hold of my guilliman model now and am starting to plan my conversion from guilliman to Lion el johnson.
So far ive only been able to find Lion Shoulder Pads #3 - Element Games - Warhammer and Warhammer 40k Store (which i want to ask you opinion to for use in one of his shoulders)
But im struggling to find on any 3rd party/ebay/GW websites anything i can use to convert his sword and legplates to coincide more with the lion and the dark angels over Guilliman and ultramarines

Are the shoulder im looking at a good pick
And also does anyone know where i might find pieces like:
https://17890-presscdn-0-51-pagely.n...nt-500x336.jpg (I adore the head on this and it would fit Lion el johnson amazingly)
https://17890-presscdn-0-51-pagely.n...nt-496x500.jpg (The knee plates on this model would also fit amazingly with the head and the shoulders i chosen)
Edit: i was also planning to get lion themed pieces from AoS sets to get things like a chestplate and bracers

Any help to further this or any criticism on what ive chosen is really helful

Those shoulderpads won't fit - Guilliman's shoulderpads are quite a bit bigger than a normal marine's.

Sword: If you have Guilliman, you have Cypher. Cypher's carrying what sure as hell looks like a sheathed Lion's Blade, so you've got the hilt if you cut it loose (plus a sheathe to be attached to a belt or on his back). You can cut the Emperor's Blade down carefully for a properly-sized blade, the length should probably be close at least. Or make one yourself.

Legplates: There's not actually that many Omegas there. The double-headed and single-headed eagles (for the Imperium and Emperor) are respectable symbols If you wish to change them like the Omega on the kneepad, you can file the symbols off carefully and greenstuff/freehand something properly First Legion. Guilliman's sufficiently unique that I don't think you're going to be finding much else in his size.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

He seems to be a rather similar size to a contemptor dreadnought from our sizings today at my local Gw (unless we just measured up wrong)
And i was planning to leave alot of the markings alone it was more so to put a little flair or lions on him and remove any ultramarine symbols

Edit: AoS pieces seemed to be scaled up compared to that of 40k which may yield parts as storm cast parts are covered in lion decals
