Why? (Kruber's sword and shield pairing art)

So, this is something that has bugged me for several days now, namely the mismatch of Kruber’s sword and shield art and more specifically the pairing of what is apparently a recruit’s sword to the sergeant’s shield and vise versa.

Let me illustrate. This is what currently ingame is the single handed sergeant’s longsword as a separate weapon:


Yet on the sword and shield combo for sergeant we get this:



Yet for recruit’s longsword and shield we get the sergeant’s longsword identical to the single handed version:


I’d say it’s pretty apparent that the sergeant’s shield design with the skull in the middle was always meant to go along the skulls of the sergeant’s longsword as well thus why? Why pair the obviously wrong sword with the sergeant’s shield? Why give recruits the fancy sergeant sword instead?
