ok i am in a bit of a dilemna should i:
A: get off my butt already and farm the nethers for my Bulwark of Kings and save my arena points for the S2 sword
B: switch BS spec and purchase S2 chest this week and craft the T1 and T2 swords.
C: just buy pants this week and wait on random loot tables to give me a better weapon.

I'd say get the sword. Random loot tables suck, and upgrading your weapon is generally the best bang-for-your-buck upgrade you can get. The other pieces in question look alright for the time being. You already have the T1 BS chest, so banking it and crafting the sword, which is arguably the worst of the 3 craftable 2Hs, seems like a waste of effort and cash.
Off topic slightly, your link in your post is broken, I had to remove the second http:// =P

good call i will edit it and yeah was kinda thinking the same but wanted additional input as waiting for another 1800 points seems like forever.

here's the thing psycho,
I was in the EXACT same situation as you, having alraedy made my bulwark in fact, but lacking a strong pvp weapon using Warmaul of Infused Light
In 1.5 weeks time, i farmed the gold/ore to make my Thunder and that tuesday when arena points came in, got the chest, changed to mace smith, made my thunder, and in only 4 more days, had all the nethers I needed for my DT.
And let me tell you.
It was the best thing to ahppen to me.
I absolutely shot up my arena rankings, and now am the key member in all of my arena teams. I went 9-1 the first week I finished the DT, and will break into the 1800 bracekt this weekend in my 2v2 with a priest.. yes a priest not a paladin.
so depending on how well you can farm the mights for the sword, I'd say do the BS sword, and grab the chest. And definitely go Swords, with the mace nerf coming and axe being meh, i'd probably go swords too.

I fully agree. If you gear up your warrior without a weapon, things get a bit rough. Check out my alt warrior Kaziganthi on Bleeding Hollow. Fully epic now with a crystalforged axe. Relying on loot tables sucks..:( The weapon will be the most benefit to you by far. Also for my next weapon, I will be going swords as well. It is the only spec not getting nerfed....axe keeps getting worse as more and more resiliance is added.

The extent of the mace spec nerf is not yet known (and if it is, I've yet to see it). I'm hoping it isn't too bad, because I'm not changing (blacksmithing) weapon spec because of it, but knowing Blizz, they'll put it back to a static 5%, making it worthless. Oh well, doesn't bother me, I don't seriously do arena, and I rarely spec arms at all. Just saying, mace spec may not be totally and utterly worthless, just wait and see first.
