Applying the template directly to the base creature of a garden pixie would be inappropriate, as they don't shrink as they gather together into numbers.
    They're still diminutive, they still use diminutive's size mod.

    Actually the Template applies to Any creature (there is no size restriction). According to the Pathfinder Swarm Template, any base creature from Tiny to Small uses +8 as its modifier. If you are using the swarm subtype but without the template, the modifier for those creatures seems to be the same the same as the base creature. Having conflicting sources does make things more difficult to assess.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.
