Heh, that's pretty much it.
Right you are on the first example...
(Kinda embarressing after I'm all snug up here on my high horse
I prefer root chance-to-kill odds rather tha, a set number of attacks, since it lets you work out relative advantages of various formations, and keeps the kill-counts in perspective. The high numbers of attacks aren't wrong, but the picture is sometimes skewed. (perfect example being your two second examples - in both cases, the probability of an attack becoming a kill are pretty low, namely 1/8 and 1/9. Start mulltiplying by 60 attacks, however, and the difference gets exaggerated. Multiply by 100 attacks, and it gets blown out of all proportion)
Hmmm. I reckon tomorrow might be time to resurrect Mathhammer for the tabletop. It's nice and easy, and actually usable while playing.
