Default Skeleton warriors, what to give and how to rank up

I have finally satrted to get some tomb kings and I am wondering whether to give my warriors spears and/or shields, and also how it would be ebst to rank them up. I don't have much experience with fantasy but I would imagine wariors are a fairly weak unit given that they are 4 pts each basic. They only have one attack and it will be rare the opponent will have lower WS than 2 so you will always hit less than them. So I was thinking becasue of this, go for ranks of 5, so that I can get as many rank bonuses as possible and go for spears so that I at least get some extra attacks. A shield would certainly help but as soon as I get to S5 it will do nothing unless I also have light armour.

There is also the option of a tomb king/prince to give them good WS but that would only be worth it in a massive unit.

What do you think I should go for?


Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow
