Hello

Most people use them in groups of 10 (as it's the minimum, making them fairly maneuverable), or 13 (just enough to ensure that it takes 4 wounds before they have to test for panic). For scouts, 10 is the way to go, as with any more you'll have a hard time hiding them inside terrain.

Another approach is using large units of them to guard your flanks. 24 skinks with blowpipes can stop fast cavalry dead on its tracks, as well as deal with flying monsters and the such. I've still to try this approach, so I reserve my judgment for when I do.

What you have to take into account is the number of models in each boxed set. 24 means 12 per unit is the most economic way to field them until you've purchased 2 or 3 boxes...
