Welcome to Librarium Online!
What do you guys think will make some imperial guard vehicles more vostroyan-ish? Never really done any conversions before so i am a little flustered as to how i am gonna make the tanks match the army.
Tough one I guess you could hang som bearskins or something off the side you could make em out of GS or Im sure that the space wolf range has got something also try to embelish with as many inperial symbols like the double eagle
Thats all I got

Try basing them on some WW2 tanks with some fur etc hanging off it
looking at the Vost's weaponry, they also seem to have a fair bit of fancy metalwork decorating everything, so with some plasticard you could put platework instead of bolts at all (or maybe just some) of the armour joins on the tanks

I think Capt. Phil 's suggestion takes the cake - make them look like the C&C Red Alert 2 tanks! The vostroyans give an impression of post WWII Russian military. Furs (yes, already said), Amphibious Chimeras (Yes, in theory they arleady are) - make snorkels for the engines and be sure to use the Hunter Killer missile from the vehicle accessory sprue, etc. If I decide to get into them, that's how'd I'd do it.

i dont know about you, but when i think of vostoyan i think less high tech, so like horse pushed basilisk, wooden platform, fancy ornate armour, lots of rings around the barrel (because its probably not as high tech) ropes/chains used to raise/lower the barrel, those chains or ropes pulled by slaves, an engineer with a wip, and of course the furs and such
but thats just me
Given they are connected to the Ad Mech the gold and red scheme should work well and then look at Ad Mech stuff for either a very hi tech feel or a slightly more cobbled together gothic feel.
see first problem is the perception of what the vostrians are, clarity will surely come with WD317, but in the mean time several people seem to be labouring under the impression they look like WWII Russians, this aint the case, WWII russions based minis? look at calhallarns, Vostrians have bearskins and are more similar, visually, to Napoleonics, clearly tanks were not used in the time of Napleon, so we lack appropriate tank imagery.
Equally people haev suggested they are lionked to the Skitari, and AM, but without clear reference from the GW site, I would not make assumptions.
Which, I apprecuiate, leaves you floating, but I would be tempted to stay that way until WD 317 clarifies all
