I am really not a fan of pointed swords. You don't get a good feel for the shape and build of the model when the arm is stuck up in the air.
The ideal "regal space marine" look that I like is the power sword captain for the new sternguard box. He has a ship captain pose, with his left arm resting on the hilt of his sheathed sword.
