What conversion projects are folks considering for 8th edition?

I am new to 40k and interested in making an army consisting of walkers and looted vehicles. Mainly, this is a modeling and painting project. But being fun on the table would be nice too. I was hoping to convert a few world war 2 tanks, but without looted wagons, I am unsure of what rules they would use on the table. Battle wagons maybe?

The fliers seem to have many options. Maybe an at-st and trash can mix for a dred?

I suppose I should be patient and hope the death skulls are covered in a codex at some point before going too far in this.

I'm taking all my looted wagons as bigtrakks with killkannons, my big trakk with supakannons remain so and my junkas are going to go through a bit of creative thought to make them something.

Anyone else a bit surprised bigtrakks get stuff like the supascorcha this ed when FW don't make a model for it?

Does seem odd when you consider we can't have junkas because of no official model.  Think both of my junkas will end up as big trakks, just as soon as I can remove the KFF's and fit some kind of big gun in their place.  Handily, I have a set of redeemer flamers on hand that should make a good basis for supa skorchas.

Just about every model GW makes for every other faction is a junka by the time da boyz have finished with it :rolleyes

I don't have any ideas that have popped in specifically because of 8th ed, though I want to convert a few Goliaths as trukks.  Mostly, I'm just eager to get back to work on other projects I've had on my desk for ages. 2017 so far has not left me any time to do any hobby work: I haven't even touched a model since January :(
