Well spears out out more attacks but HW+shield gives better protection in combat. Personaly I'd go for spears as you can always get more skellies.

Your skellies are there to hold the enemy in place, so their surviving (and thus not losing the combat) is more important...so I'd stick to the hand weapon and shield option most times. Other scary units do damage...and that extra point of save is better than an extra attack here and there that probably won't kill much anyway.

I could go with spears and just use the incantation of summoning when I need to... but the sword's better armor save is appealing...

spear... when the rules change you won't get the benefit of h/w shield if you are flanked, and as you've all pointed out... if a skelly falls over.. PZZZAP! and its back again!

They can't really change that can they? That's like saying you only get the benifit of shields if the firing is comming from the side holding the shield.
