GW tends to do that.
The old Empire State Troops (similar time frame) came in boxes of 19. Why they do it I have no idea, unless it's a subtle means of making you buy that extra set.
As for the lack of swords and shields, again, a gross lack of forethought on GWs part, or they want you to purchase more. You could just convert some extra shields, use Counts As etc.
I think the idea is that you can just use the arm that's holding a dagger pointed downward, snip off the blade and stick a shield on there. It's in a shield holding position.
They come as 19 *because* they used to be 16 and you got metal bits to upgrade 3 to command. When they switched to plastic command sprues, it effectively went up to 19 models, so that was a gain for us, more or less. It does mean that you'll only have parts for 16 boyz of any givne config. 3 of the models are meant to be command group, they weren't designed as part of the set.
