Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have 12 skinks ready assembled with blowpipes.
I have just purchased another box of 24.
I plan on assembling 8 more with blowpipes, to make a total of 20.
How would you suggest assembling the remaining 16?
I was thinking javelin and shield, but, would be open to any suggestions.
Depends how you want to run the unit, make some lists and decide what your most likely to play before you build and then you wont have to ask. I build up entire lists before buying to help stop myself making mistakes with models.

Usually nice to have a unit of 10 with javelins so you have a cheap throw away unit. But as was stated, make a few lists to see what you will usually want. 16 will get you a big enough unit to field a couple kroxigors in it, but I don't find these units to be that useful. If you don't plan on running them, then a few extra blow pipe guys to use to fill some points is an option.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
thanks for the replies.
I have worked on a few lists, currently the ones I run tend to be saurus heavy and very little to no skinks. I am experimenting, tomorrow, with a list that includes 2 units of 10 skirmishers.
Think your advice sounds good, i'll leave the others unassembled for now until I have a definite plan for them (most probably will buy a couple more boxes at some point so i can field a decent amount of ranked skinks if I want to)
