Sorry if I was unclear.

So of the damage that would be "absorbed", 1/4 of it actually gets reapplied as bonus damage. This only applies to damage you dealt that would normally be swallowed by the armour.

If you roll 12 damage, against 8 armour, 1/4 of that armour doesn't work as it should against blunt weaponry. 8/4 is 2, so your final damage is:
4 damage (12 - 8) plus
2 damage (8 / 4)
=> 6 damage

Or, alternatively, if you roll 7 damage against 5 armour, 1/4 of that absorbed damage is reapplied for:
2 damage (7 - 5) plus
1 damage (5 / 4)
=> 3 damage

Or if you didn't manage to bypass the armour at all - 10 damage against 12 armour:
2 damage (10 / 4)
=> 2 damage

Hope this helps.
