This was because if/when I include Genestealers in the army I'll want to paint them in the traditional blue and purple, so I thought it'd be a good idea to include some blue and purple elsewhere in my colour scheme to tie the army together a bit more. So all bio-guns will be purple and all bone swords will be blue.
I like the implication from this that the Warriors are "true" Tyranids, while the 'stealers are merely weapons...
