So basically, as long as you have at least 1 point of armour, your HP only gets hit by the “ignore” portion of damage and the “normal” damage doesn’t spill over into HP?
That would make sense, I was always slightly confused about the fringe case of very little armour in relation to HP damage.

Yes. Which means that 1 armor and a 65 point gambeson would give you the same protection against that greatsword swing. Weird, but that’s how it works.
