Which brings me to the question:
What if you have battle focus and/or poison on a 7+?
I assume:
* Roll for 7+
* 7+ triggers both poison and battle focus


Yes.

Though rare, it may actually break my model.

Battle Focus is the most peculiar one, especially in combination with Poison. I was about to implement Battle Focus as "just another attack", when I realised my implementation could lead to outcomes with more than 100% chance to occur. The reason was an imperfect combination with poison.
Although the 2 rules don't have a lot of influence on each other on the table, statistically they are joined as a single outcome, forcing the additional hit from battle focus to be calculated with a poison in conjunction to remain statistically correct.

It's proving an interesting challenge :D
It will get done, battle focus included.

Done. I added:
* Re-roll successful hits
* Battle Focus
The combination of Poison and BattleFocus leads to 1 Poison hit and 1 extra hit from battle focus

I added place-holders for re-rolls of successful wounds and armour saves, but they have yet to be implemented.

Excellent changes so far, esp. battle focus 8)

I noticed one more simplification that could be done, while re-rolling 1s exists in the game in several instances, re-rolling 1s&2s does not - so removing this option would make sense, and would increase ease of use.
