I think they do not have an entry as a CC weapon. They'll use Hand Weapons instead.

No, they do not get poisoned close combat attacks, which is what you are really asking.

Reason: Javelins are missile weapons, not close combat weapons.

As stated in the rulebook, javelins are to flimsy for close combat and the model will use their hth weapon instead. Don't worry, this is a good thing (they gain parry bonus for a nifty 5+ save).

I suppose you could choose "javelins" and forgo your hand weapon and shield bonus save if you really want...

No you can't. They are missile weapons, like throwing axes.

Very true! Actually unless your in close combat with a low toughness no armor save low leadership unit like Gnoblars it might be best to flee and try and rally so that you may live to throw more Javelins. I personally prefer Blowpipes myself.
