Armbian is a nice starting point, but that's about it. This is what I did on my new RPi3B+: 
- install Raspbian
- put the devuan ascii repository in sources.list
- disable recommended and suggested packages:

# joe /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01norecommend
APT::Install-Recommends "false";
APT::Install-Suggests "false";
APT::AutoRemove::RecommendsImportant "false";
APT::AutoRemove::SuggestsImportant "false";

# apt-get update
# apt-get install aptitude devuan-keyring
# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade

Now remove systemd if you like. I remember that was a bit of an issue, the first time I tried systemd did not agree with me and consequently rendered the system unbootable. If i remeber correctly, I had to trigger the rebuild of initrd by hand. 
# aptitude install sysv-rc sysvinit-core sysvinit-utils 

Now remove packages that are not used any more - go through that list very carefully. On x86 I use "apt-show-versions |grep -v '\(not installed\|uptodate\)'" but that does not work on arm:

#  dpkg -l | grep -v 'ii '

- add TDE repository
- install the parts pf TDE I'm insterested in

Basicly done. Make sure that the raspberry-specific packges from armbian are kept in place. You'll most likly loose pi-bluetooth, but that pacjkage is a nobrainer (~  lines of shell code to put in rc.local)
