It is easy to keep them clearly different, in David Gervais 32x32 tiles for example all kobolds are green and orcs are given other colours. And even with 32x32 pixels you can give very clear characteristics so that there's no problem telling an ogre from a giant for example, even if their colours are similar.

Hajo, what's the (maximum) size of your pictograms by the way?
