It would be fun, if not outrageously difficult, to create a conlang meant to be an imagining-reconstructing of the pre-Germanic pre-Indo-European substrate. A lot of the research one would need as a foundation is probably out there, perhaps just hard to find for the average amateur conlanger. There is, somewhere, a dictionary online of supposed pre-Indo-European words in Germanic languages that one could use as a starting point. Hmmm... the wheels are turning.
