Simple question that needs a bit of further consideration - possibly a better explanation.

Skaven book says that if you fire into combat that you hit your intended target on 4+ - That is straight forward.

It says, that on a 1-3 that it is determined "randomly" amongst the combatants...

This is my question - So, essentially - If I am reading this correctly, assuming one skaven unit vs. one enemy unit that the skaven player really has a 75% chance of hitting his intended target..

The first roll, if 4-6 (50%)

if you roll 1-3 then you randomize again giving another 50/50 split.

Am I missing something here or is that right?
