How to create multiple list items based on selections from a list lookup?

I am struggling a bit to make this idea work...


Business scenario:

I have a client who would like to create tasks when a new security vulnerability is identified.  Each platform that is in scope would have a list item to track the status, resource, and details about the effort.


My approach so far:

I have a "Platforms" list and then a "Vulnerabilities" list for each item with columns for the SME assigned, status, as well as a lookup column to the "Platforms" list.  My thought was that the "Vulnerabilities" list would have a workflow with a Nintex start form that would allow the submitter to enter a title and select the platforms in scope.  Then the workflow would create an item for each in scope platform selected.  I created the start form with a list lookup control pulling from the "Platforms" list.


I am not figuring out how to correctly capture the platforms selected in the workflow start form to use when creating items in the list.  I assumed they would have to be saved to a collection workflow variable in order for the workflow to loop through them and create the items, but I don't know how to get it to save to a collection. 


Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
