Personally I would go with hand weapons to get the 6++ parry save, helping your hoard last a little longer (they are basically a tarpit unit) which should help more then a handful of extra S3 attacks. The parry save is doubly effective in TKs case since every model you save is 1 less that'll crumble if you lose the fight.
Secondary to this is that spears increase the cost of the model.... which is not great for a unit that you want to get as many bodies in for as little cost as possible.
As for skellies WS2; yeah, its basically the lowest WS of anyone other then undead or goblins but fear can drop many enemies down to WS1 if they fail their fear test so you will be hitting enemies on 3+ on occasion.
