I interpret it as smaller hits accumulate, just like with any figure that
takes hits. The idea with skeletons is that one big hit (8+ points) will
cause it to shatter (a special case, because they're fragile).

Here's what ITL says:

Skeletons are also somewhat fragile. Any single hit of 8 points damage or

As for 1d6 weapons, again, their hits accumulate and take away strength on a
skeleton. However, a 1d6 weapon can always do double/triple damage and maybe
score 8+ points.
