Soulblight/Vampires sounds about right. Don't know much about basket-hilt swords, but that grip doesn't seem like the kind of positioning you'd expect from someone wielding it elegantly, so that makes it less likely to be Slaanesh or (Chaos) Elves. Still entirely possible to be either of those, but to me it's more fitting the style of a brutally strong, undead nobility, or even a swashbuckler
Yeah. Unless it's an intentional juxtaposition between well made weapon and misshapen hand that looks wrong.

I guess. There are light striations on the back of the 'hand' (above the handguard) that remind me of nothing so much as the design for the Clayface villain in Young Justice.
Maybe its just the angle, but the base of the wrist seems too narrow, and the two visible 'fingers' look unfinished (or there is supposed to be webbing in between the first two fingers), and the other two shouldn't be so completely hidden by the guard.
Its just so very at odds with the sword itself, which seems like they went for a very authentic, almost real-world design.

It is historically accurate; putting a finger over a quillion apparently helps with point control and was often used for precise thrusting attacks. The hand does seem rather small compared to the sword, especially given GW's usual hand proportions (i.e. even more oversized than their weapons).
FEC are a very small range and heck from GW's point of view not that profitable either since almost their entire range is in the start collecting set. They've a few models outside of it, but not many and no real core troops and such. Plus with the ability to take over the normal monstrous unit limit in one army it means players have no real reason to want the other sets and can just keep getting SC stets.
I could see them getting an update with new models to not only flesh them out (pun intended), but also to give them more regular earning models for GW.
Still thinking Cawdor. Scrawny limbs with trash weapons, multi purposed for digging in the garbage piles looking for gems.
