    I currently have 10 of both Skinks with javelins and boltspitters and have another box of them on the way but I'm not sure whether it would be better to add 10 to each unit to give them both +1 to hit or go all in on the Boltspitters for +2 to hit for them.

    If it helps, I'm currently trying to build towards a Shadowstrike Starhost and my current inventory is:
    1x Lord Kroak
    1x Skink Starpriest
    1x Skink Priest
    10x Skinks w/ javelins
    10x Skinks w/ boltspitters
    5x Chameleon Skinks
    3x Skink Handlers
    1x Saurus Scar-Vet on a Carnosaur w/ spear
    1x Saurus Scar-Vet on a Cold One
    1x Saurus Sunblood
    1x Astrolith Bearer
    10x Saurus Warriors w/ spears
    5x Saurus Knights w/ lances
    1x Bastiladon w/ solar engine
    1x Razordon

    I would go full in on the spitters.
    Currently the only way to make skinks significant damage-wise is the 40 man boltspitter blob, but their main use remains being quintessential supreme chaff.

    Spitters win on account of their added range. Not that either is going to do any significant damage anyway, but at least they can try from a bit further away.

    I mostly just build the javalins on the side. Seeing as each box comes with 24 of the things anyways I build 20 spitters and 4 javalins. If ever javalins get a buff I'l be prepared :p

    I would also go for only Boltspitters.
