Fairly sure you need to distinguish between hit chance and criticals.
So if you are hitting on a 12 with a 19-20 crit range then your chance to hit is 35% and chance to crit is 10%.
Everyone knows that your chance to score a critical hit is not measured by the probability of rolling a certain number on a die, but rather on the dramatic weight of the encounter.
Modified, of course, by the number of giants you have slain, on whose corpses you build a new Dwarven empire.
