Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ever since I filled out my 1500pt Eldar army, I've been thinking of painting them all in a Harlequin theme (after all, those guys are badass). The only problem is I've run aground on what roles to paint the models into.
I've set out what I've come up with so far, but there's a long way to go. Any advice anyone can offer would be appreciated (and no, I'm not looking forward to painting all this).
Farseer: Ancient Solitaire (ie: Guardians of the Black Library)
Harlequin Troupe: Harlequins, obviously
Dire Avengers: ???
Striking Scorpions: Mimes
Wraithlord: Harlequin Wraith Construct
Fire Prism: Harlequin Fire Prism
Dark Reapers: Death Jesters possibly?

I think your idea is a great idea, and this will be barely any help at all but just follow the wakky colour scheme on each unit, making each one different if there are two of that unit to make sure there is a lot of variation in your army.
I remember being able to run entire Harlequin armies, and I had one, based around DE models. Good times. Good luck with your army, make sure to use some light transports to act as Venoms (or whatever they were)
