Triumph Over Wyches & More
My Haemonculus units (the Haemonculi themselves as well as their Wracks) will have a more dominant purple in their coloration, as all of them wear long skirts that, being made of cloth, end up purple. I think that this differentiates the units enough that you can tell that they're from different parts of Dark Eldar society, come together to make a whole.
As to weather or not their transports will have differing color schemes, I don't know, but I'm leaning towards no. At most I'll probably wind up giving them different decals on their sails, but I may just wind up giving different sails different meanings. The double sails will carry the Kabalite Warriors, the single sails will carry the Wyches.
Finally, the humidity here finally cracked enough to let me Dullcote my minis! Hurrah! the trick I learned in an article on the G.W. website (see, it's occasionally good for something) worked. For those of you who are curious, once you get the decal to adhere to the model you go over it and the surrounding area with gloss varnish. When you go over the area with matte varnish (Dullcote in my case) the seam around the decal disappears!
Now to work up the drive to paint my second Wych squad. Maybe after I finish this next essay. Yeah, that's it.
